East T-STEM students
On Nov 14th Mustangs will set a goal in a small group setting and write it down. These "dreams with a deadline" will be displayed throughout the school, and represent their "Plan".

On Nov 19th we have a Genius Monday and students will be dressed in attire for their "Dream Job".

On Nov 20th we will take a full length ACT

We have purchased online ACT practice program that will be "calibrated" to each student's need based on the practice ACT that they take.

We are more than great students at T-STEM! We are well-rounded! #preparingthemfortheirfuture

but we have online access to amazing books, and a rolling book cart!

Every week we highlight what our students do OUTSIDE of the classroom... send us your pictures and shout outs!

This week's shout out goes to... everyone who participated in Genius Day!

Genius Day was a HUGE success. Students received support in class,
and other students enjoyed the fruits of their hard work!
Student Shadowing
Never too early to think about shadowing... know someone who might be interested in enrollment 2019-20?

We have some of the BEST educators in the city working with your son/daughter!
We are happy to spotlight them so that you can learn a little about the people that spend hours each day serving your child!
Teacher Spotlight
Mr. R. Stoecker
My first position as an instructor was in the Navy, where I taught firefighting and other damage control classes on an aircraft carrier. I later graduated from the University of Memphis with a double major in biomedical engineering and math. I used the degree in mathematics to start a teaching career in 2016. After a year, I used that to transition into a position teaching STEM. I love inspiring my students to get excited about applying math to complete STEM projects.
Day of the Dead
The Day of the Dead ( Spanish : Día de Muertos ) is a Mexican holiday celebrated throughout Mexico, in particular the Central and South regions, and by people of Mexican heritage elsewhere. Our students learned that this day focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died. Our students participated in Spanish classes.

Thank you to Ms. Diaz, Ms. Lee, and Ms. Spolin
