As a Science Academy, we have been one of the leading schools in the district to implement the science curriculum. We have been fortunate to have our district Science Coach, Mrs. Ciaglia, work with our teachers to plan for and implement science lessons. This year we are ensuring that we are integrating the Next Generation Science Standards into our curriculum.
As a school, we have begun to integrate more STEAM activities to enrich our Science curriculum. Last year, several of our teachers, including our librarian, taught students to code. In the summer, our tech aide Mrs. Vargas embedded digital literacy into our summer reading program. This year, we are preparing for teachers to become experts in a STEAM area so that students can further experiment with Technology and Engineering. We are excited to begin this journey. We have received great support from our Technology department in helping us plan for and accomplish these goals.
