STEM says thank you to deputies

Teachers and staff showed their appreciation to deputies for their work following the May 7 school shooting


Teachers, staff and administrators from STEM School Highlands Ranch visited the sheriff's office substation just down the road Sept. 17 to express appreciation to deputies for their work in responding to the May 7 school shooting.

Leanne Weyman, director of STEM, presented deputies with a signed banner and cards, which were created by students during a lockdown drill, she said.

“Thank you from the bottom of our hearts,” she said. “We appreciate all that you do.”

Capt. Troy McCarty accepted the banner and cards with appreciation.

“I can't tell you how much this means to us that you guys have come into our house and recognized us for this,” McCarty said. “So thank you very much.”

STEM is trying to reach out to all the people and groups who played a role in assisting the school in the May 7 event, Weyman said.

“As a community, we all work together to keep kids safe and ensure they are receiving the best possible education,” she said.

Representatives from the school also visited the Colorado State Patrol headquarters in Castle Rock, the Douglas County Sheriff's Office headquarters in Castle Rock and South Metro Fire Station 18 in Littleton, according to a news release from the school.
