Deputy Gabe celebrated for SRO Appreciation Day

STEM Kindergartners learning about the seven continents

A special thanks to guest speaker Kathy Dwyer for visiting with our Kindergartners this week! The students are learning about the seven continents and she came in to talk about Australia.
She gave each classroom a pet stuffed koala and several books about the weather, agriculture, food, clothing, culture, lifestyle and housing developments.
STEM teachers will be using this information as they develop their next PBL unit around weather and the environment.

STEM 7th graders participating in The World Affairs Challenge with World Denver

Sustainable goals!
STEM 7th grade students have been busy taking part in the World Affairs Challenge with World Denver.
The World Affairs Challenge (WAC) is an international program and competition for middle and high school students to develop and implement their own S.M.A.R.T. solutions for the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
Students have completed their Problem Identification and Investigation. They developed their SMART Solution. Students are working in groups and are preparing their pitch solutions, which include a six-minute video presentation.
The next steps include action plans, community outreach and budget development that will then end up with some of the groups competing at the Global Championship. All students, if they wish, will have the opportunity to present at the WAC Showcase as well.
