STEM Staff Spirit Month Part 2

STEM Staff Spirit Month continued heading into the last school week of 2021 with a variety of contests including ‘best pajamas’, ‘best stockings’, ‘best snowy white outfit’, and of course the infamous ‘ugly sweater’ contest.  The celebration concluded with the STEM Staff Holiday party at The Lake House at Cherry Creek Reservoir where STEM staff danced the night away!  Thanks to everyone who helped organize the wonderful party.

Where at STEM is the gingerbread man?

Where is the gingerbread man?! On Thursday our kindergartners went on a scavenger hunt all over the Elementary School in search of the elusive gingerbread man!
They had to follow clues and solve riddles from room to room. Eventually…they found him! Deputy Gabe had successfully captured the gingerbread man near the entrance to the school. What a fun event!
