What is STEAM? STEAM is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics education. Our focus is to fuse these disciplines together and integrate real-world problem solving into our curriculum because such skills and understanding are essential for student success. Our district embarked on a STEMulating journey this year which has included self-paced computer science programs through www.code.org (K-8), introductory lessons using robotics in our elementary schools, project-based learning opportunities at all grade levels and developing partnerships with experts throughout our community so lessons can come alive!

Speak Up

The Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA) is participating for the first time as a system in the annual nationwide Speak Up Survey administered by Project Tomorrow. This survey
has been taken by over 3 million students in 2,400 school districts across the Nation since 2003.
While this is entirely voluntary, parents, students, teachers and administrators are encouraged to take
the survey. The survey is open between now and December 19,2014. Data from the survey will
allow DoDEA to make better technology decisions in many areas, such as how we resource our
classrooms and the type of professional development teachers want. This is your opportunity to
Speak Up!
