Dear Parents,
This week I found an interesting article titled "A Parent's Guide for Getting Girls Into STEM Careers."  This is the link to find this excellent article full of tips and a suggested timeline to ensure your daughter reaches her goal.
Speaking of STEM, students in the library (i-Media Center) have been busy creating 3D designs on the 3D Printer!  Please use this link to view more photos from the i-Media Center!
Best Regards,
