    S.T.E.A.M.   

         The Allenwood Elementary School will be utilizing the standards, skills, and elements of the S.T.E.A.M. curriculum to effectively deliver the PGCPS S.T.E.A.M. components for all students at the Elementary School level.

     

         The need to inform and provide an essential S.T.E.A.M. program for our students and parents is paramount. All students will have the opportunity to be engaged, empowered and educated as they embark on clinical yet experimental courses and skills. These skills will propel a rigorous instruction process of the components of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics for all students.

     

         Our goal is that all stakeholders, students, teachers, parents and community partners will join our S.T.E.A.M. Department and assist us in our focus to provide all students the opportunity to participate in the teaching and learning of the S.T.E.A.M. activities and events throughout our school year 2016-2017.
