I'm excited to announce that we have hired a STEM Lab Aide to teach our STEM rotation this year. Mr. Therianos is retired from the United States Air Force where he worked as an electrical engineer. He he has also been a substitute in the Tooele County School District for 7 years. We'd like to welcome him to our team. Not only will our teachers continue to apply STEM principles in their instruction, but for 40 minutes a week students will have access to our STEM lab where they will perform experiments, solve problems, build technology, and create new ideas. We look forward to providing our students with weekly hands-on STEM experiences.
I want to thank everyone for making 2016-17 a wonderful school year. One of West Elementary's themes this year was "Teach someone something you learned today." In order for us to truly understand something, we need to be able to teach it to another person. We invite everyone to continue to practice teaching others throughout the summer. It doesn't have to be math, or spelling, but anything you learn that you feel is interesting or exciting, teach it to someone else. Have a great summer!
