Prinipal Carla Barrera-Ortiz meeting with representatives of LAUSD.

From our principal...

Dear STEAM Community,

Thank you for being part of this community. In one way or another we have all been welcomed into this community because we share in a common and bold vision. At STEAM we will work together to ensure all of our students obtain the knowledge and 21st century skills necessary to be college and career ready. You are crucial to this effort.

How can you help? As poet Maya Angelou would say, "Just from where you are," making a difference through whatever role you play today. Whether you are a student, parent, family member, staff member, teacher, or administrator, you have the opportunity to contribute to the collective effort. For example, as a student, you may assist in creating engaging student activities through a club or simply support by attending and always doing your best in class. As a parent, you might have time to join our Parent-Teacher Association, or maybe you simply committ to attending all parent-teacher nights. Whichever contribution is possible, we welcome it. Our collective efforts will power and transform our relatively young community into an even more effective STEAM engine for student empowerment and success.

The work we share in preparing students for the 21st century is monumental and I am so glad to count you all as part of it. Please accept my sincerest thank you in advance.

Your principal,

Ms. Barrera-Ortiz
