The We Are Munster Community Ambassador Program is a six-session behind-the-scenes look at our district. It is open to the residents in the STM boundaries who would like to learn more about our schools and what we do. Topics include finances, operations, curriculum and instruction and student services.
We ask that ambassadors commit to at least five of the six sessions. Our staff and students help prepare these experiences, and it is important that they have the chance to share their hard work with you.
Sessions will be held from 9:00 am to 11:00 am and will include breakfast.
Ambassadors are encouraged to become active attendees of district events in order to get to know our community of students, staff and families. They will receive passes/tickets to a variety of extracurricular events, plays or athletic games throughout the year.
Ambassadors are guests in our buildings and in our classrooms. They are required to follow all safety protocols. They cannot take photos of students or staff during their visit, and they must complete a limited background check.
Please plan to attend the May 13, 2024 board meeting to be recognized as an ambassador of the district!
We had a great response from individuals in our community who want to
know more about our schools and the daily processes of the district.
Applications for the 2023-24 Ambassador program were due October 9th.
Applicants will be notified of their application status by Monday, October 23rd.
