Our expansion project brought us more than new class rooms. As we move classes into the new building we are also happy to add new courses and expectations to our well established, challenging curriculum and programs.
The new building has added a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics) lab and STEAM classes for 4th through 7th grade, art club after school, and Lego Robotics Rookie Team in Middle School.
