Welcome to the stem academy website
Welcome to the new edition of Newton's News. I will be able to use this space to issue frequent updates on all issues in the STEM Academy.
We had an excellent opening day with an enthusiastic taped message from Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren and a well-received keynote presentation from oceanographer Dr. Katy Croff Bell.
Classes and student projects are underway and they will be highlighted on this web site as they occur.
My message is brief today in that I want to update everyone on a few item.
We are still waiting for the chrome book charger stations which will also allow the computers to be locked up at night. However, student tutorials for the chrome books will begin next week. 7th grade students will be trained on Monday and Tuesday and the 8th graders on Wednesday and Thursday. Technology specialist Josh Rodrigues will be conducting the classes on those days.
Open House for grades 7-12 is Thursday, 6:00-8:00 PM. STEM parents will report to their child's advisory and they will then follow the schedule for all classes for Blue and White Days. The teachers will share their expectations as well as review their curriculum.
We are still working on assigning lockers for students - more about that in the next couple of days.
If you have any questions regarding a class please contact the teacher.
