An exciting educational opportunity is in the works for middle school aged students in Anchorage. The Anchorage STrEaM Academy is a charter school in the making, with " a middle school curriculum infused with outdoor, long-term laboratory investigations." As a former 6th grade teacher, I can tell you, this could not be a more appropriate way to connect and engage students of this age group! What makes me even more excited about this school is that it will be housed on the east side of town, and hopefully provide an option to families of kids currently moving on from Title 1 elementary schools.
They are having an informational meeting on May 2. Here's the text from the email they sent me:
"The folks at Anchorage STrEaM Academy are excited to extend an invitation to you. We are hosting an informational meeting for interested community partners, families, and stakeholders at The BP Energy Center on May 2nd at 7pm.
We would love to have you join!
Come learn more about our proposed Charter School for 6th-8th graders, inquire about our timeline, see faces behind the scenes, and share what you would like to offer.
The gathering will be informal and welcoming."
