STEAM CLUB Update
We currently have three STEAM Clubs in full force!
Mrs. Packard's, I Am Quilt Making Club, is busy writing and creating quilt squares.
Mrs. McClintock's, DaVinci to the Digital Age Club, have been learning about flight and made moveable origami birds.
The Build it! Do It! group led by Ms. Hinde, Ms. Aggen, Mrs. Eubanks, and Mrs. Smolik got underway with some intense building. This club was very popular! We understand some families were not able to sign their students up due to the high demand. Look for future dates when we may run this one again!
