On March 30, parents of first and second-grade students were invited to attend the district’s first STEAM night, geared at providing parents with a first-hand look at the innovative lessons that their children are engaging in during the school day. Organized by Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction Cindy Munter and Director of Math and Science Debra Harley, the evening gave parents the opportunity to rotate between four different hands-on stations where they created a zip line, constructed miniature boats to float and experimented with Ozobots and Dot and Dash robots.

“It was wonderful to see children working alongside their parents to teach them about the valuable lessons they are learning,” said Ms. Munter. “As a district, we remain committed to providing ongoing education and training for our parents so that they understand what is going on in the classroom and can better relate to what their children are learning. We look forward to providing more evenings such as this in the future!”
