What is STEM? SVVSD defines STEM as integration of all subjects, problem solving, 21st century skills, personalized learning and connections in and beyond their local lives. TRMS teachers teach STEM by carefully planning out Integrated STEM Plans, ISPs, for the school year.
The last ISP we finished in 6th grade science this year was a space challenge. The standards the students need to succeed at are:
St. Vrain Valley School District has partnered with the University of Colorado at Boulder to incorporate authentic engineering into the classroom in a program called CU Teams. Engineering graduate students have the opportunity to pay for their school through teaching engineering lessons in K-12 public education.
Over the school year, my honors class completed a special project with the International Telementoring Program. “The International Telementoring Program, ITP, provides real-world STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) opportunities for students and teachers while supporting work in other areas such as English, Geography, and the Arts. ITP also helps students, beginning in middle school, to develop solid education + career plans, create + leverage professional networks, and execute + refine these plans over multiple years.

Final report cards will not be mailed home to the families. Parents can locate the grades on Infinite Campus, under reports. If you would like a paper copy of the final report card, please contact the office.
The cookie dough will be coming in next Wednesday, April 29th!
Students that participated in the fundraiser need to pick up the cookie dough promptly after school so that it doesn't thaw.
Also, if you are owed prizes for your sales, they will be available at that time.
The cookie dough tubs are pretty heavy, so please make arrangements for help and transportation if you think you will have difficulty getting it home on your own! Thank you to all that participated, it was a big success!
