Grandparent's Day - Request for Information

We are updating our database for communicating Grandparent's Day events throughout the year. If you have not already done so, please click on the link below to submit the Grandparent Form. CLICK HERE
STM Directory

Within Plus Portals, is the STM Directory. We hope that all families will "Opt In" to the directory. The link below is a short video of how it works. I did it for my child, and it took one minute.

Why should we do this as parents? 

This is how your child will be invited to birthday parties! This is how your room parent can communicate with you! This is another way to stay connected at STM!

Please take a moment to join now.
