Community Education, full stem ahead!

{E-Stem} What is E-STEM? On May 7, 2012, the Prior LakeSavage Area Schools school board approved a proposal that will make all of our K-5 elementary schools the first district-wide E-STEM schools in the state of Minnesota. E-STEM stands for Environmental Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. The district defines E-STEM as follows: An interdisciplinary approach to instruction and learning focused on inquiry and real world problem-solving in the 21st Century, applying hands-on science, technology, engineering and mathematical practices with projects and field experiences related to the environment.

Interdisciplinary, hands-on, and field experiences are words that describe E-STEM instruction, but they can also be used to describe Community Education (CE) youth activities! CE strives to provide interactive programs for youth learners, and has for many years. Now we are doing this while adding a focus on more classes and programs that directly relate to science, technology, engineering, and math principles. You’ll find a train tracks icon by the classes we’ve designated as E-STEM. While we are deliberately recruiting E-STEM instructors, we are continuing to provide opportunities for students that excel in sports and the arts as well. Our well rounded offerings aim to serve the diverse needs and interests of our community. Please let us know if you have any questions about our programming or you have ideas for new offerings! We hope you’re ready to head “Full STEM Ahead” to read through the catalog, mark your favorites, and register for our programs. Sincerely, Carrie Dobie Youth Programs Coordinator Look for this icon throughout the catalog.

Come discover the world of E-STEM through a Community Education Youth Class.

Join the league that will provide “The hardest fun you’ll ever have!” FIRST LEGO League (FLL) is a robotics program that will get you excited about science, math and technology! Teams of 8-10 students will be formed. Each team will be given the same LEGO MINDSTROMS kit to use, a Robot Game Challenge, and a project; an actual real world issue that needs to be solved. Your team’s goal will be to come up with the best solution for each piece of the challenge. Please note: While this program is intended to be fun for all participants, it is a team competition and its success requires that all members be committed to fully participating. This is more than building with LEGOS. The competition includes the building of a group robot, a research project, and the development of a presentation. FIRST recommends successful teams meet for a minimum of 40 hours between the time kits arrive in early September and the date of the competition in November or December. First Lego League Coaches: All teams are youth led, but each requires 2 adult volunteer coaches. Training sessions are available and no experience is necessary. Teams cannot run without volunteer coaches. Coaches set the meeting schedule for each team. Signing a student up with 2 coaches is the only way to guarantee a team will exist for your student and that the meeting times will fit your schedule. KingTec 2169 members (from the PLHS Robotics Team) will host 2 Build Nights to help teams problem solve. Team entry fees for optional regional competitions will be required if teams choose to compete. This program is offered in partnership between Community Education and KingTec 2169.

{TEENS} After school High School GYMNASTICS Fall Session (7th-12th Grade)

First Lego League with KingTec 2169 (4th-8th Grade)

This program is designed for gymnasts who are currently on the high school gymnastics team or would like to participate on the high school team this winter. The focus will be on learning new skills as well as improving strength and flexibility. Wear leotards and bring your bar grips, water bottles and tennis shoes to every practice. Complete information was not available before publication of this catalog. Please call CE for more information.

Join the league that will provide “The hardest fun you’ll ever have!” FIRST LEGO League (FLL) is a robotics program that will get you excited about science, math and technology! Teams of 8-10 students will be formed. Each team will be given the same LEGO MINDSTROMS kit to use, a Robot Game Challenge, and a project; an actual real world issue that needs to be solved. Your team’s goal will be to come up with the best solution for each piece of the challenge. Please note: While this program is intended to be fun for all participants, it is a team competition and its success requires that all members be committed to fully participating. This is more than building with LEGOS. The competition includes the building of a group robot, a research project, and the development of a presentation. FIRST recommends successful teams meet for a minimum of 40 hours between the time kits arrive in early September and the date of the competition in November or December. First Lego League Coaches: All teams are youth led, but each requires 2 adult volunteer coaches. Training sessions are available and no experience is necessary. Teams cannot run without volunteer coaches. Coaches set the meeting schedule for each team. Signing a student up with 2 coaches is the only way to guarantee a team will exist for your student and that the meeting times will fit your schedule. KingTec 2169 members (from the PLHS Robotics Team) will host 2 Build Nights to help teams problem solve. Team entry fees for optional regional competitions will be required if teams choose to compete. This program is offered in partnership between Community Education and KingTec 2169. Attendance at the Registration Night is HIGHLY recommended.

We are proud to say that we are expanding this focus through E-STEM initiatives. Our K-5 elementary schools are the first district-wide E-STEM schools in the state of Minnesota. E-STEM stands for Environmental Education, Science, Technology Engineering and Math. E-STEM offers an interdisciplinary approach to instruction and learning focused on inquiry and real world problem-solving in the 21st Century, applying hands-on science, technology, engineering and mathematical practices with projects and field experiences related to the environment.

• Provide an accessible daytime phone number and an additional emergency contact when registering your child for programs. • For After School Classes, please include your child’s teacher’s name, your child’s typical after school routine, and bus number if applicable. • Please notify the Community Education Office at 952.226.0080 as soon as possible if your child will not be attending a session of a class for which they are registered. • If someone other than a parent will be picking up your child from class, please let the instructor and/or a Community Education staff person know ahead of time. • Drop off your child in the classroom on time each session. • Elementary After School CE Participants will be dismissed from their elementary classroom to Kids’ Company (KC) Staff. Students will eat snack (provided by CE) with KC. CE class instructors will pick up registered class participants from Kids’ Company. • Pick up your child in the classroom at the class ending time. Security codes will be issued to parents on or before the first day of class (at locked buildings). If you cannot pick up on time, you are expected to make other arrangements for your child ahead of time. Late pickups are subject to a fee. • Inform the instructor AND a Community Education staff person of any allergies, special needs, or behavioral concerns that may help us to provide the best environment and instruction for your child and the other students enrolled. • The behavior of students is expected to be appropriate for the class learning environment. The instructor and Community Education staff reserve the right to dismiss students immediately, without a refund, when behavior is not appropriate or jeopardizes the safety of them or other students. Should this become necessary, parents will be contacted and expected to pick up children immediately. Please Note: These procedures have been modified for Fall 2013.
