Winter Athletes: Don’t Forget to Join the STEM Athletics Booster Club
If your student will be playing basketball at STEM, please complete this online form. This year, anybody playing a STEM sport is also asked to pay a $25 annual membership fee via paypal.me/stemathleticsbooster. These funds will be used to purchase sporting equipment, trophies, and offset costs for the celebration banquet that will be held for our basketball athletes in March. This is a small fee (much lower than what other local sports programs cost) and we hope you help support our athletes. We're looking forward to another awesome basketball season. GO RAVENS!
