My Students

Every student at our school has a dream. Some dream of becoming football players or police officers, others want to be teachers or scientists. Students at our school are consistently encouraged by their teachers with the chant "Yes You Will!"

Every student at our K-8 school knows that in order to make their dreams come true, they must graduate from high school at a minimum.

Most of our students have obstacles in their paths, such as poverty or being English language learners. But that doesn't stop our students from working hard every day to make their dreams come true. And when our former students cross the stage on their high school graduation day, it is with great pride that our teachers tell them, "Yes You Did!"

My Project

Hands-on exploration is always an engaging way for students to learn. The materials in this project will be used to create STEM Bins: pencil boxes filled with building materials that can be used to solve challenges on task cards.

Can you build a bridge out of pipe cleaners or a boat out of Legos?

Can you make it taller? Can you make it hold weight? Can you use all the pieces in your pencil box? STEM Bins have students attempting challenges like these! STEM Bins can be used in a variety of ways: in science, for early finishers, or as a reward for hard work. STEM Bins encourage critical thinking and problem-solving skills while being just plain fun!
