Current STEM Ambassadors must also reapply. Check out the flyers around the building or see Ms. Hobbs or Dr. Nesmith for more information.

    • Rising juniors and seniors~

      •  Work Based Learning - Have you ever thought about working in your STEM area and earning course credit? If so, work-based learning may be for you!  If interested, contact Laura Griffin if your base school is ECHS or Veronica Smith if your base school is SEHS.

      • Dual Enrollment - Are you planning on taking Dual Enrollment classes next year?  If so, you and a parent/guardian must attend one of our County Contract Meetings.  Our next virtual events will be on Tuesday, March 28 at 5:30 pm and Wednesday, 4/12 at 5:30pm.  Be sure to sign up on Google classroom and see Ms. Nave with questions.

    • Seniors!  Have you picked up your Class of 2023 yard sign from Ms. Nave?  What about your cap and gown?  If you or a parent/guardian did not pick them up at your base school last week, please stop by Ms. Nave's office to do so.

    • STEM students start planning for our trip in November of 2023.  We will be going to Universal Studios on November 3 - 4 where we will be doing a fun and exciting educational program.  Go to www.kellytours.com and enter trip number 17070.  Spots are limited, so sign up early.

    • Students, as a reminder, school begins at 7:30.  This is what time you are to be in your zero period classroom.  For student drivers, please do not hang out in the parking lot and lose track of time.  Once you arrive at school, you should proceed on into the building to begin your day.

    That's it for this week. Go Knights!
