STEM CENTER FOR INNOVATION

St. Mary’s STEM Center for Innovation is a vital dimension of our school community. It brings our students together through a hive of connected spaces–as a community of artists, scientists, innovators, explorers, readers, and learners. The STEM Center for Innovation is home to our media center, collaborative workspaces, conference room, and two Innovative Learning Labs and will host maker spaces and digital media and gaming/e-sports interests.

St. Mary’s is committed to an interdisciplinary approach to learning. Classes utilize our two Innovative Learning Labs to:

  • Participate in project-based hands-on activities
  • Explore and use class STEM project buckets to design solutions to problems
  • Use virtual reality goggles to explore difficult-to-grasp concepts
  • Innovate new products with 3D printers
  • Work on coding, Arduino, and robotics projects that allow students to create interactive electronic objects

Our STEM initiative encourages and rewards flexible thinking, risk-taking, innovation, and collaborative and individual work efforts.

Drop Everything and Read

Instilling the love of reading is a top priority at St. Mary’s. 

Our teachers and media specialist aim to make your child a lifelong reader. SMA provides students with choices in what they read through self-selection from our library and couples this with class novel studies. 

St. Mary’s maintains a library of over 5,000 books. Additionally, we have classroom sets of decoder books for young readers, high-interest books for beginner readers, and novels for novel studies for more advanced exploration of literature studies. An engaging selection of classical literature is included at every grade level.

We do DEAR time–where we Drop Everything And Read self-selected books for enjoyment. We take reading seriously.
