If you have confirmed your enrollment already, you will receive a confirmation letter at the end of May in the mail. If you’ve already confirmed your enrollment with us, you do not need to confirm again.
Valley STEM Counselor Deb Towns has been hard at work contacting home schools to start the process of building schedules. We will be working on the schedules during the summer months, and we will be in contact with you starting in June if we have questions.
During the last few weeks, we have also started meeting with the students and families already enrolled at Valley STEM. If we haven’t met yet, don’t worry! We are excited to meet each student and their families in the coming weeks. If you have enrolled, but don’t have a meeting set up, contact Mara Banfield at firstname.lastname@example.org.
