School News


St. Joseph Elementary School's STREAM program is a favorite at the school. In the newly renovated STREAMworks Lab students solve real-world problems, are given the opportunity to build critical thinking skills, and make connections among school, community, and the world, within a hands-on creative environment. The school is expanding its curriculum and is participating in two pilot programs. Our STREAM team faculty will also be presenting our projects and collaborating with other teachers in the field.
