Important Announcements from Santa Clara Unified School District
Bracher Elementary School is proud to offer STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) opportunities to our students. Our afterschool, free STEAM enrichment program is open to 2nd - 5th grade students on a space-available basis to those who complete a STEAM application in October of each school year. Applications for the STEAM after school enrichment program are available annually in October via the weekly "Wednesday folder" sent home with your student and/or on our schoolloop website. Our STEAM program provides hands-on work via scientific experimentation, applied mathematics, Hour of Code, explanations of electricity, creative engineering opportunities, a year-end annual STEAM Expo for students to make and share individual/team projects and more!
As well, as of the 2015/16 school year, STEAM activities are also being offered directly in the classroom to K - 5th grade students. By doing so, Bracher students get even more exposure to the exciting world of STEAM learning and preparation for continued academic success
We are looking for donations of these items. It is completely voluntary to make a donation and no donations are required to participate in the program. If you are able to donate though, these are items we are interested in.
Donations can be brought to the front office or brought to Rm G on Wednesday.
Thank you in advance.
