  • Teaching Science-Technology-Engineering and Math (STEM) is about much more than the content of those individual areas.  It is about teaching students to think deeply and to think well so that they have the chance to become the innovators, educators, researchers, and leaders who can solve the most pressing challenges facing our nation and our world.  As a result of being awarded a Math Science Partnership grant, our elementary teachers can learn more about how to integrate STEM into their classrooms through engaging and hands on professional development led by Kindergarten teacher and district wide elementary STEM Coach Amanda Kulig and Dr. Mike Jabot from SUNY Fredonia, our partner in the grant. 


    The professional learning began this month with Kickstarting STEM workshops - which shared challenged teachers to build a structure from gumdrops and toothpicks that could hold a textbook and introduced them to Code.org, a nonprofit dedicated to expanding access to computer science in schools and increasing participation by women and underrepresented minorities.  In fact, teachers challenged their building leaders to create a dance party using code to be shared at an upcoming faculty meeting (more on those adventures soon!)  


    You can learn more about what is happening in STEM through the MSP grant at the district STEM webpage which includes STEM resources as well as a STEM spotlight sharing the learning of teachers and students in the district. 


    A big thank you to Amanda for leading the charge with great enthusiasm and for all the teachers stepping outside of their comfort zone to learn new ways to engage our students in learning!

  • The Golden Ticket incentive was a way for all Dunkirk schools to recognize students for “doing the right thing” in the first two weeks of school. All faculty and staff were given ten golden tickets to hand out to the students. Each Golden Ticket winner received a Walmart gift card. The district is planning to do two more Golden Ticket events throughout the year.
