WELCOME OUR NEW STEM TEACHER!

Good afternoon parents,

My name is Mrs. Smith and I am the new STEM lab teacher here at Pickett’s Mill. Over the next few days, I will be going in to each of the classrooms and introducing the students to something new we will be doing this year. Each month, we will have a STEM book of the month. The books will be read aloud to the students at school. To go along with the book, the students will have an optional Take-Home STEM Challenge. When students complete the Take-Home STEM Challenges, they will bring them to me in the STEM lab, and they will be displayed in the Learning Commons for that month. Students who complete the projects will have their name placed in a bucket for a chance to win the STEM book of the month. There will be 2 books given away – one for K-2 and one for 3-5.

Today, I read the STEM book of the month to your child’s class.  Your child should have a copy of the Take-Home Challenge for August. If you have any questions about the STEM book of the month or the Take-Home STEM Challenge, please email me at [email protected]. You can also find our more information on the STEM blog at www.cobblearning.net/pmesangelasmith/.

Thank you,

Mrs. Smith
