A message from The Junior Tech Squad
The time has come again where, all of us must say goodbye until next year. This year in technology we have experience some up and downs and made it through with great discovery. We have learned how to create businesses and advertisements. We have learned about robotics from start to finish. We have used various coding programs such as, Sugar turtle Labs, Scratch, Light Bot, and Sprite Box, and TinkerCAD. We have even designed and built a bridge with a 3D pen! We have even entered the 2018 Elementary Science Expo and was a huge hit, with our TinkerCAD Bridge project.
We are proud to say that we have advanced more this year than, any other year in technology, and we hope to continue to grow as we come back next year for more fun!

What’s in Flux with technology this February ?
Technology is such a broad category, and this month we are focusing on what technology is. We will be exploring all things technology, from using creating images using Turtle Blocks Java Script to creating living habitat in Power Point! All new things are happening in technology this month.
We will be starting our first round of tech Thursdays, where we will be offering FREE coding classes after school every other Thursdays; stay tuned for more details. The Junior Tech Squad has shot their first introduction video, the blooper video will be up on
our new YouTube page Elementary Techs & Elementary Tech Jr later this week. Stem now has a Facebook page!! You can check here for all our updates, changes, videos and events about the school!
What are we celebrating?! Technology would like to congratulate two rock star students for receiving our first Technology Coding Space Scholarships (TCSS) fully funded!

Technology Celebrated our first CS4 All event at STEM!
This is what happens when you take a brain break in Technology!
Technology typing is on fire! This month in Tech, the school is participating in a Dojo competition! First team that makes it to 90 points gets all the Halloween candy that was collected over the month and a pizza party!! Rankings will be posted on the tech home page! Technology has started recognizing excellence in students by naming TechGuru of the month! A TechGuru is someone who has displayed excellence in Technology through their behavior and work! Each TechGuru will be a representative for their grade and on the editing team for the Technology Blog. The Blog will be run by the 5th Grade TechGuru who will be named Editor in Chief!
This month in Kindergarten, we are all about mouse control and spooky shapes.
This month in First grade we are gearing up to become master keyboarders and going international. We will be writing letters to pen pals and to our family members!
This month in Second grade. Our Turkey has gone bozo! And in order to save 201, they have to work on: 3 digit numbers in math, Study rocks and the types of rocks in science, have a class election in social studies and make small moment stories in writing! Most importantly, they have to make holiday cards and flyers using Powerpoint in Technology!
3rd grade is wants you to know all about them with their All About Me Project.
Advertising anyone? 4th grade is starting to brainstorm on their first advertising campaign. Ask your scholar what their favorite commercials are! For November, we will be taking a deeper dive into typing our scripts for our 30 second commercial.
All about Business! Our 5th graders are diving into creating their first business plan. Be sure to ask your young scholar why they think their favorite businesses have succeeded! What makes a child love Nike? Or a young girl wants to shop at Justice.
Congratulations to all our TechGuru's!
