We need your help! With our Rooftop Auction quickly approaching, we are in need of donations from local businesses to support our efforts. Please reach out your local service providers to secure donations for our Auction and drop them off with the secretary at either campus. Thank you for your support!
Thank you to James Donaher and his team for power washing the amphitheater at the Mayeda campus this past weekend! It looks beautiful!
A huge thank you to Amy Balsbaugh for supporting STEAM opportunities by offering a 10 week Tinkering series to our first grade students! “Using everyday materials in open-ended projects, students transform the ordinary to the extraordinary while nurturing problem solving skills, building creative confidence, encouraging collaboration, and empowering students as agents of their own success.”
Our STEAM planning continues for our middle grade students as well. Nick Grandy, from our partner Clever.com, will be volunteering his time to work with 6th grade Science teacher, Aaron Weis, to do some STEAM curriculum planning for this spring. Through our Salesforce.com funding, we’ve purchased two “Makerspace in a Box” filled with tools to support our students’ hands-on learning. You can check them out here: http://tinyurl.com/mvp7omj.
To further support our efforts to provide our students additional opportunities for hands-on learning through STEAM, we’re taking full advantage of the roof space at the Mayeda campus! We’ve installed additional power outlets and a stainless steel sink is on the way. Also, the district has approved the placement of a work shed on the roof. You can see what it will look like here: http://tinyurl.com/kpt6x5y and here: http://tinyurl.com/o76dge6.
Last week, I visited the Katherine Delmar Burke School to check out their makerspace and STEAM programming. I took some photos and put them into a slideshow that you can check out here: http://tinyurl.com/l5n53o5.
If you have an interest in STEAM and the use of makerspaces, in particular, and are interested in helping out with this work, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We’d love to have your support!
Finally, as we prepare for the grand opening of our Wellness Center at the Burnett campus, we’d like to invite you to stop by for Open House next week during parent conferences to check it out! We hope to see you there!
