• STePS is an acronym for: Students, Teachers, Parents, Support.  We serve as a liaison between students, staff and parents at A.I. Root Middle School.


    STePS supports many activities throughout the year and raises funds for student and staff development and success. To raise funds for A.I. Root Middle School STePS promotes Box Tops and Campbell’s label collections and school dance projects. The activities that STePS supports and staffs through volunteers include: the Root Rocks Café, the Tailgate Event, Halloween dance, Muffins with Mom, Donuts with Dad, and the Eighth Grade Farewell.


    STePSgives back by donating a basket to After Prom each year, presenting scholarships to seniors at the high school, framing art to be hung in the halls of Root, adding playground equipment, purchasing incentives for positive student behavior, teacher mini grants, and more as needed.
