PTSA is here to help!

Tesla STEM PTSA believes that financial need shouldn't be a barrier to students fully participating in the Tesla STEM HS curriculum. To support that, the PTSA has partnered with the school counselors and Principal to provide scholarship funds to students in need.
Families who need help with fees and supplies are encouraged to contact their counselor at STEM with their requests.
Confidentiality of such requests is strictly maintained - requests are considered by the school and no one at PTSA knows the names of the requestors. 
Please don't hesitate to contact the counselors, if PTSA can help.
