Welcome back, Central STEM Families!

 

The Parent Advisory Committee (PAC) is pleased to share our upcoming events for Fall 2022.

 

A few things to note:

 

1) Payment for all field trips/lunches is accepted via cash, check, or Venmo and is due the week before. Our Venmo handle is @stempac -- please note that this account is different from the regular STEM account (you will see our PAC logo on the account).

 

2) Your help is always needed. If you are interested in assisting with lunches or event planning, send an email to stemtriadpac@gmail.com to let us know.

 

Our goal is to build community and provide fun opportunities for the students outside of the classroom. Jump in anytime.

 

Warmly,

 

Jen, Holli, and Jena

DRINKS AND SNACKS AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE

This year we will be offering bottled water, soda (Coke, Diet Coke, and Sprite) and packaged snacks (i.e., chips and cookies) for sale during Third Week Lunch for $1 each. No RSVP needed, but exact cash if possible, please.

PAC is offering social opportunities for all Central STEM families on the first Friday of the month. We aim to provide a variety of options that meet the social needs of students and financial comfort level of their families based on our survey results.

Dec. 2: "Winter" activity TBD ($-$$)

 

RSVP (and payment if applicable) is required one week prior to the activity. In the event a field trip does not receive the minimum number of registrations required by the host (typically at least 10 students), it will be subject to cancellation.
