First Day of School 2019-20

Students celebrated the first day back to Atwater S.T.E.A.M. Elementary by greeting one another and taking pictures to commemorate their excitement. Everyone--students, parents, teachers and staff--were eager to get the year started.  "2019-20 will be our greatest year by far!, " exclaimed Mr. Rios.  He was also very thankful for the opportunity to return to Atwater for a 5th year.

What is STEAM?


STEAM is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics.  At Atwater Avenue School, this means the integration of these subjects through Collaboration, Cooperation and Communication with the goal of preparing all students for the challenges of the 21st Century.  Every job of the future, even those that you wouldn't expect, will require at least some basic STEAM skills--skills that are transferable and needed in every job sector.  Our students are problem solvers, innovators, inventors, and critical thinkers.  They engage in socially conscious Project-Based learning opportunities, in matters that are inquiry-based, hands-on and that more closely align with what students will experience in college and the workforce. STEAM education provides the foundation for every child to be successful in college, work, and life.
