Handel's Fundraiser

May 29th

Santiago STEAM Magnet Elementary School and Handel’s Homemade Ice Cream are teaming up to raise money by selling everyone’s favorite ice cream! We are really excited about this tasty fundraising opportunity and hope you are as well. Spirit Nights are super fun so be sure to bring all your friends!

Santiago STEAM Magnet Elementary School will receive 20% of all menu items purchased by their supporters at Handel’s Ice Cream in Lake Forest. All you need to do is go to Handel’s Lake Forest the day of the Fundraiser, make your purchase, and be SURE to say you are there for the Fundraiser.

National Geographic’s Top Ten Best of Everything named Handel’s Ice Cream #1 in the World. Handel’s Ice Cream was also named Best of OC by the OC Register for the second year in a row.

We would like to thank you in advance for all your efforts to support Santiago STEAM Magnet Elementary School. We are extremely grateful for all your support in the past, and we hope that you will be able to participate in this Fundraiser as well.

Moon Tree 

Coming Soon!

We are honored to announce that NASA has named Santiago STEAM Magnet Elementary an official Moon Tree Steward. The school will receive a Sequoia whose seed traveled aboard Artemis I, farther into space than any human has ever gone!

NASA’s Office of STEM Engagement and the USDA Forest Service reviewed more than 1300 applications from across the nation before selecting Santiago STEAM Magnet Elementary as recipient of this Moon Tree. The combined agencies congratulated Santiago for its Education Impact Statement and tree care plans, which distinguished the school as a first-round recipient. 

The Moon Tree will provide unlimited opportunities for real-world investigation, scientific data collection, and conservation education. This unique, otherworldly tree will open up a universe of possibilities for our young students.

Santiago STEAM Green and Santiago STEAM Magnet PTA applied for the “NASA Moon Tree” on behalf of Santiago STEAM Magnet Elementary School.
