What's New At Boulevard

Boulevard Elementary has recently received STEM School Designation through the Ohio Department of Education and the Ohio STEM Learning Network.

The Ohio STEM Committee met to review applications for state designation as an Ohio STEM school. The committee is a panel of policymakers, agency directors, and business leaders.

Twenty-two applications from schools across Ohio were considered. Designation

recognizes a school’s design as an effective place for STEM learning and invites the

school into the Ohio STEM Learning Network, a public-private partnership managed by


STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) education provides students

with a deep understanding of STEM subjects while incorporating inquiry-based learning

and design thinking in all subjects.

Concurring unanimously with the recommendations of Ohio STEM Learning Network staff, the committee designated eleven new schools, including Boulevard Elementary School.

We are so proud of the work that the teachers, students, and staff do to support our students with rich and engaging STEM curriculum.


Camp Invention

Camp Invention will take place at Boulevard this summer. We are hosting two weeks of camp. Our first week will be in June from the 11th to the 15th. The second week will be in August from the 6th to the 10th. Camp Invention is a great way for students to explore design and engineering and to make new friends. The curriculum is developed by the National Inventor's Hall of Fame. The instructors are teachers in the District. Click on the link below to sign up for one or both weeks.
