Students at Steck Elementary School will have 9 two hour late start days for the 2018-2019 school year. These late starts will be used for important Professional Learning time for teachers & staff. School will begin two hours later each of the late start days at 10:10 am. This will be a great time for parents to try to schedule dental/medical appointments throughout the year which won’t conflict with school hours! More information will be available soon!

21st Century Classrooms

“To be a teacher is to be a creator. All teachers have the capacity to create learning environments that transform the educational experience. The act of imagining and designing effective learning environments is both reflective and intentional.” – Meegan Bennett

The 21st century classroom promotes a decrease in the footprint the teacher has in the classroom allowing for a less cluttered, more organized and engaging space to work in.
