Changes to our programs-

The STEAM TEAM has been meeting with Bayside STEM to begin our work in “reimagining” our school. All of the STEAM staff spent February 7th learning about STEAM. In the morning, we met with the San Mateo County Office of Education STEM center staff and in the afternoon, we spent time with the Bayside STEM staff. I will be attending the National STEM conference during spring break to see how things are moving on the national stage.

The Montessori staff spent their Staff development day with the No. Shoreview staff working on Montessori Math. They have also been attending Wednesday planning days at No. Shoreview. We will be adding two kindergarten classrooms to the Montessori program during the next school year!

Lots of positive changes for our school!
