Summer Reading

Please see the following link for summer reading information, SUMMER READING. Summer Reading test dates for students entering grades 3-6 are Tuesday, June 16 and Thursday, July 16.  

Students may only test on one (1) book per testing date.  Students may wait until we return to school in August to take one or both summer reading tests.  

Uniform

Since the unveiling of our new "One STM" logo, the plan has been for the 2019-2020 school year to serve as a transition year, with everyone moving to the new logo on all uniform items beginning with the 2020-2021 school year. We recognize that the COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant financial impact on many of our families. In order to provide families with greater flexibility, we have decided to extend the transition to the 2020-2021 school year as well. 

The former "bell tower" logo will be permitted during the upcoming 2020-2021 school year. We will move to the new "One STM" logo beginning with the 2021-2022 school year. We hope this will provide some financial relief for our families. 

Our three uniform vendors, Inkas', School Time and Young Fashions, are open and are holding sales this summer for STM families. Please check the STM weekly newsletter every Wednesday for details. 

Information about dress code and uniform vendors can be found at the following link, UNIFORM. STM partners with Inka’s, School Time, and Young Fashions. Click here for the 2019-20 handbook.
