Student Drop Off & Pick Up Survey

Parents – our Collaborative School Committee (CSC) has taken on the task of making our drop off and pick up times safer.  The link we are providing is for you to assist us in doing that.  It will take you to a short form that you can fill out to help us address trouble areas.  Please use it whenever you see or experience an unsafe incident that warrants reporting.
Also, we will be changing the way we do drop off and pick up next school year.  Please watch for updates!

Late Start Days 2018-19 School Year

Sept 5, Oct 3, Nov 7, Dec 5, Jan 9, Feb 6, March 6, April 3, May 1

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.
