However, we will add students to campus as space becomes available. For more information and next steps, please review the slides from the Principal’s Coffee (3/26/21) LINK to Information.

With ST Math, students build a strong conceptual foundation and repair cracks and gaps in that foundation - correcting misconceptions so their future math learning can snap into place. To access the program, students log in to the Clever portal and click on the ST Math icon. Using ST Math at Home.
