Introduction

Welcome, Estrella Vista STEM Academy families!

We are diligently working to improve school culture. Having the right environment to support student learning is essential. Our goal is to ensure every child has the opportunity to learn in a fair and equitable educational setting. We look forward to collaborating with all stakeholders to foster this expectation.

As a STEM Academy, we believe each child is a treasure with unique gifts, talents, and capabilities. We work collaboratively to discover and nurture those abilities through science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). We expect all students and staff members to be respectful, dedicated, hardworking, independent thinkers, and problem solvers. 

Estrella Vista promotes four core values, which include the following:

  • We are a trusted and established community committed to setting high standards in STEM with integrity and fidelity.
  • We believe in developing responsible global citizens.
  • We strive for every student, staff member, and community member to exhibit the utmost respect in all situations.
  • We believe in building a cooperative and positive team environment conducive to the highest level of STEM learning. 

We look forward to having you back in person and participating as a school community. Go Hawks!

A Message from our principal

May 2021

Hawk Families,

Thank you for choosing Estrella Vista STEM Academy. We pride ourselves on our commitment to our students, parents, and community. We are one big family and we hope you feel the EV love the moment you step on our campus. We have the best students, parents, and community - Hawk pride!

The first week of May is Teacher Appreciation Week! Show your appreciation for our wonderful staff by writing a note or sending an email. EV teachers are the best and they deserve extra appreciation this week!

With the 2020–2021 school year quickly coming to an end, the EV staff would like to wish you a safe and enjoyable summer vacation with your family and friends. Thanks for your support of your child’s learning this year. We look forward to seeing you back with us on July 28!

Five things to do this summer that will provide for a fun, interesting, and family supported summer vacation:

  1. Go to the library. Get a library card. The library is a great way to have fun.
  2. Read to your children.
  3. Restrict the amount of TV, video games, and phone time.
  4. Talk with your children about their success in school this year and that you expect them to spend time over the summer writing, learning poems, reading, and doing math.
  5. Spend quality time together and increase your physical activity - a healthy mind and a healthy body equals a full heart! Be well take care and stay safe Hawks!
