White Coat Tradition Continues at Polser Elementary

Staff earn special token at STEM Academy.

The Lewisville ISD STEM Academy at Polser Elementary is home to a talented group of staff members. Throughout the school year, as each one earns their National Certificate for STEM Teaching, they are honored in front of their colleagues with a unique token of their achievement, a tradition that began in early 2019.

The STEM certification takes time, research and collaboration with other Polser staff members - no easy feat, especially once the school year gets underway.

Once complete, the staff member who earns the honor gets a special certificate, a white lab coat and cheers from fellow Polser staff at a staff meeting.
