One of the new curricular goals introduced by the Waters' instructional leadership team (ILT) for the 2016-18 curriculum plan is a Science Technology Engineering Arts & Math (STEAM) component, taking our arts integration to a new and exciting level. Teachers have participated in STEAM-focused conferences and Mini-Maker Faires. Most recently, Mrs. Vecchioni's DonorsChoose project was fully funded, thanks to many generous donors and a special award for the project with the most votes at the 2016 Summer Arts Integration & STEAM Online Conference! This project funds the creation of a fully equipped Maker Space in the art room, will all the necessary maker materials for students to engineer their own creations. Learn more about STEAM here.
