Transformation in Progress...
We have spent a good amount of time this summer having conversations with key members of our community and school system to garner support for transforming our school's computer lab to a STEAM lab. What is a STEAM lab you ask? In our STEAM lab, students will be given an opportunity to inquire, explore, collaborate and create in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math. Our new colorful, inviting, child friendly space will provide students with hands on learning where teachers are facilitators and students drive the process. Once complete, our STEAM lab will feature traditional desktop computers, touch screen tablets with a variety of STEAM oriented apps, a rich library of non-fiction texts, a large flat screen internet capable TV with webcam to enable "Skype in the classroom" and a multitude of materials that will provide hands on learning experiences. We continue to seek funding from our school community and are reaching out to families as well to help us make this vision a reality. Our goal is to have a grand opening, complete with a ribbon cutting ceremony on Monday, September 8th. Please consider assisting us in meeting this goal by donating to our school so we can purchase items from our STEAM lab wish list. We are very excited about providing this new space--a space that ALL of our children will experience EVERY week at Southern Pines Primary. Thank you for your willingness to help us!
