Mrs. Raines' Language Arts classes just completed an interdisciplinary unit on argumentative writing and waste production at ICMS. On Wednesday, March 30, the students had a STEM Day where they presented their findings to parents and guests. Thank you to all parents, administrators, and County Office personnel who took part in the day. Click here for photos.
STEM (Science/Technology/Engineering/Math) education seeks to develop critical thinkers and students who can work collaboratively to problem solve. Indian Creek now has a 6th grade team exploring the STEM initiative. Learn more about STEM as we expand our offerings and programming.
