A Letter from the VCMS Principal – March 2023

Dear VCMS Families,

Valley Catholic Middle School is excited to announce that the Second Annual Women in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) Day will occur on March 22. 

Women in STEM Day provides an opportunity for all students to see successful and culturally diverse women speak about their careers in STEM fields. This unique experience will include all women speakers focused on inspiring a new generation to explore careers or hobbies with STEM principles. Students will have opportunities to learn about various careers and make connections between the STEM curriculum and design process and real-world careers. In addition, we will have hands-on STEM activities created by teachers or brought in through OMSI or other local STEM organizations. 

The goal of the Women in STEM Day is to open up a world of possibilities for the students. Many students associate engineers, doctors, or researchers as the only fields that use STEM. We hope to expose students to both traditionally recognized STEM careers but also careers and hobbies where elements of STEM are used in unexpected ways. In doing so, we hope to inspire students to continue coursework in STEM throughout their educational journey. 

The Women in STEM Day is made possible through the Marie Lamfrom Charitable Foundation STEM grant.

Have a blessed March – celebrating our SSMO Heritage Month and continuing our Lenten season preparing for Easter.
