Elementary Special Classes



STEAM is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math. The concept behind the STEAM lab is to create a collaborative space where students can think outside the box, create, design, and build. There are many benefits of STEAM education including teaching students the value of working together, development of critical thinking skills, creativity, and problem solving abilities.  Students will attend this special weekly, and during this time your child will gain knowledge and experience in digital citizenship, Google Suite, computer science, the design engineering process, digital media, coding and what it means to be a 21st century learner. The goal of STEAM education is to assist your child in developing some of the important skills that will benefit them in both their core academic classes as well as their real-world experiences! 


Library:  meets once per 5 day rotation 

Students are encouraged to borrow a book on their level every week. Books are due back next library class. 

Please take care of library books. If library books are ruined, parents must pay for the book. Students lose borrowing privileges if they return library books that are damaged. 

If a student forgets their library book, they can borrow another library book when they return it. 

During library class, Mrs. Murdock works on library skills, reading skills, listening skills, book talks, genre classification .... and basic traits to make lifelong readers.
