Central Park Elementary

Tagline: A STEM Exploration School

School Spirit at Central Park Elementary

We've named our school and have the tagline! The next step is to write a school song, design a logo and create a mascot. MPS has very talented educators and students to help us with these projects. Barbara Jacques, music teacher at Carpenter has written school songs in the past and has agreed to write the song for Central Park Elementary. She will be talking with students at both schools to gather ideas for the song.

Shannon and I will be visiting Curt Gledhill's Commercial Art class at Dow High School to share the philosophy of Central Park Elementary, which should spark ideas to create the logo and mascot. We will present to the class on November 1.

Project Lead the Way Training

On November 2, a group of teachers that participated in the summer PLTW training will attend a STEM conference at Eastern Michigan University. The conference is for new PLTW STEM teachers that are just implementing or planning to implement PLTW. Please note that if you are not attending this conference, there will be other opportunities in the future.
