*Lost and Found* The Lost & Found is now operational in the Cafeteria under the stage. Please have your student check the Lost & Found for any items they are missing. The Lost & Found will be emptied every first and third Friday of the month. Boxes are labelled for clothing and lunch boxes. *********Dress Down Friday, August 18th********** This Friday, August 18th, will be our first Dress Down Day of the school year. Students have the option to submit $2 to their homeroom teacher in exchange for wearing dress down attire. All proceeds will benefit STEM Athletics. Please ensure your child adheres to district dress code policy when selecting dress down attire. **********iPad Rollout Information********** 7th graders began receiving their devices last Friday, August 11th. 8th graders will begin receiving their devices on Tuesday, August 15, and 6th graders will begin to receive their devices on Friday, August 18. We strongly encourage the purchase of iPad insurance provided by StayMobile. We appreciate your patience and flexibility as we work through various technical issues to make sure all students have devices as soon as possible. Please see The STEM Academy website at stem.sccpss.com for more information. **********StayMobile on Campus********** StayMobile will be at STEM Thursday, August 17th, from 12:00pm-3:00pm. At this time you will be able to pay for iPad insurance with cash, check, and credit/debit card. Parent(s) may continue to stop by the STEM office during regular office hours to pay by check or cash. **********FBLA********** Students interested in joining FBLA (The Future Business Leaders of America) club and after-school program should see Ms. Beck in room H2 for an application. FBLA introduces students to the world of leadership and business with career exploration, community service, and immersive educational programs. Applications and $30 membership dues are due to Ms. Beck in H2 by August 18th. **********Student Super Shorts (S3) Film Competition********** The S3 Film Competition is now underway! Visit studentsupershorts.com for contest information. All entries must be two minutes or under, must be submitted on Film Freeway, and have a parent/guardian release form on file. This year's theme is "That's Why I Know It's True." The Film Lab will be open for editing after school. Check the board outside of Mrs. Lamberth's room for date and times and e-mail her at mary.rogers@sccpss.com for assistance. Students must have parent permission and transportation arranged in order to stay after school. Contest ends October 1. **********Solar Eclipse - August 21********** There will be no school for students on Monday, August 21, 2017, as a result of conditions associated with the Total Solar Eclipse. A make-up day will not be required. During a solar eclipse, the moon passes between the sun and the Earth and blocks the light from the sun. Trying to look directly at the sun during the eclipse can be hazardous to eyesight. Guidelines for watching the eclipse have been issued by NASA. Students may not use their school-issued iPads to video and/or photograph the eclipse due to the chance of an “accidental glimpse” of the full-on solar disk which could damage eyes. The only way a person may look directly at the sun or partially eclipsed sun is through special purpose solar filters (commonly known as eclipse glasses) compliant with the ISO 12312-2 international safety standard. Homemade filters and/or regular sunglasses are not safe for looking at the sun. >>>>NASA issues the following safety guidelines to prepare for the solar eclipse: -Always supervise children using solar filters. ​-Stand still and cover your eyes with your eclipse glasses or solar viewer before looking up at the bright sun. After looking at the sun, turn away and remove your filter — do not remove it while looking at the sun. -Do not look at the sun or partially eclipsed sun through an unfiltered camera, telescope, binoculars, or other optical device. -Similarly, do not look at the sun through a camera, a telescope, binoculars, or any other optical device while using your eclipse glasses or hand-held solar viewer — the concentrated solar rays will damage the filter and enter your eye(s), causing serious injury.
