“Sierra Verde is a STEAM Academy, meaning that in addition to teaching the CORE content areas, we also place a high emphasis on Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math. All our grade levels will be working towards the essential question "How do we conserve at Sierra Verde?" Kindergarten will dedicate at least 1 day per month working towards a STEAM project that integrates these elements to solve a real world problem. As a campus we will work towards finding ways to conserve resources, energy, and looking how we can reduce our overall environmental footprint. Throughout your classes, you will notice that math will also be a part of science, and that social studies will be included during language arts. Your teachers will be asking you to generate new ideas, problem-solve, and reflect, not only about what you are learning, but to consider how you are learning. Working as a team will be a key part of your education, and our goal is to prepare you for the skills necessary to be successful at Sierra Verde and the 21st Century.
