STEM supplies needed:
safety glasses
one roll of masking tape
3 pencils
one glue stick

4th and 5th graders can use the glasses from last year.

Nothing special is needed. They just need to protect their eyes when testing their projects.

What is STEM?
It is practicing what real scientists do.
It is an experience that encompasses Science concepts, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.
It is where students will learn "How to Learn".
It is where students will become better Science citizens.
It is a place where it is safe to take risks and learn more from what we do wrong than what we do right.


Students will earn a "+" or "-" mark on their report card for STEM class. To receive a "+" a students must meet expectations by consistently completing their work, cooperating with their partner, and being safe in the classroom. If a student receives an "-" parents will have been notified with a consequence form from Ms. Jozaitis.

If you ever have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.
