6th-8th Grade STEMscopes – HOVERCRAFT

In our 6th – 8th grade STEMscopes Hovercraft session, students started by investigating how to build a boat that can float holding a supported weight of 100 grams.  Following that, students had the opportunity to work on constructing their hovercrafts.  They were able to explore with their inventions to ensure they could travel over both land and water.  In the next stage, they will reflect on the work of another group and go back and change at least one part of their own prototype!

6th-8th Grade STEMscopes – Summer Enrichment Program

As of our Summer Enrichment program, STEMscopes, students in our 6th-8th grade program are applying ENGINEERING SKILLS to make a HYDRAULIC ROBOTIC ARM that can lift, turn, and grasp!  During the latter stage of the project, they will change their robotic arm so that it is able to perform a specialized task: holding a fork, picking up a piece of candy, or drawing on a whiteboard for example.

2021 End of Year Recognitions

As we wrap up the 2020-2021 school year, we want to take a moment to thank each employee for their dedication during this rollercoaster of a school year.  The finish line is so close and we would be remiss if we didn’t take a moment to thank each of you for your perseverance during this unprecedented time.

While we were unable to plan a traditional awards banquet to recognize staff for their efforts, we have prepared a short video to honor employees that have worked 25 years or more in the District.  In addition, we have compiled a special tribute for the retirees.  Please take a few minutes to watch the video and reach out to your colleagues and thank them for their commitment throughout their careers to enhancing the lives of students.

Thanks again for your hard work and dedication this school year and we hope you all have a relaxing summer break!
