Right before the winter break, the parent involvement team at Rocky Mountain Elementary collaborated around the idea of bringing parents together to witness STEM learning with their children. The result was STEM night.
In September, parents of our community came to Timberline to learn more about what STEM is in the school. We talked about what STEM is and how they will be able to see it in the classrooms. The parents were also taken on a tour of the STEM Lab to see where their students will be creating. There was a lot of support from the parents and they were happy to hear about the changes that STEM would be bringing.
Timberline PK-8 celebrated its Grand Opening on September 5, 2013. During the evening, we invited families to tour the STEM lab and visit stations with different mini design challenges. At many stations, it seemed like the parents were just as engaged as the kids.
