Magnet Coordinator's Message

We are moving Full steam ahead! 

Hello S.T.E.A.M. Family,

Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year.  I am excited to finally meet our students and families in person!  The past year and a half has been beyond challenging but I couldn't be more proud of our students, teachers, and families for pushing through it together.  Despite the constant changes, stressors, and isolation, our teachers continued to deliver their best instruction and our students continued to persevere, learn and grow.  Our technology skills improved, and together we learned to be more flexible and forgiving with both ourselves and others.   

In order to keep our school community safe, we will expect that everyone on campus wear a mask everyday at all times while indoors and/or on the bus.  We will continue to implement safety measures as established by our District and LACDH.  We will continue to provide weekly testing for our staff and students during school hours. We will also continue to implement safety measures as our District determines them to ensure that our school community's safety and health are prioritized.   

As you embark on this semester’s journey, I hope you see that your teachers have been working tirelessly to deliver a STEAM program of relevance and high quality.  This year you will have many opportunities to participate in real-world problem solving and 21stCentury skills; we will continue with our emphasis on the four Cs: collaboration, communication, creativity, and critical thinking; we will continue to offer robust elective pathways that reflect STEAM principles.  Most importantly, we will continue being supportive partners in your education.  

Looking forward to seeing you soon,

kirk
