Hispanic Heritage Fair (HHF) - 2014

SST Discovery closed Hispanic Heritage month with an inspiring educational event for our students. In 2010, over 60% of San Antonians identified themselves as Hispanic or Latino. We wanted to provide our students an educational insight into the culture that represents a large majority of their city. Some of the activities included:

• Motivational speeches from inspiring Hispanic citizens
• View and interact with a mini-wax museum of middle school students dressed as past and present Hispanic role models
• Create and learn about Mexican Folk Art

• Sample foods from various Hispanic Heritage countries, provided and served by generous parent volunteers

**Also, Frida Kahlo made a special guest appearance at our HHF ;)


OCTOBER is Bullying Prevention Awareness Month!!!

Check out the Wednesday mail for the activities in this month!!!!
Please see the infographic for more information.


ATTENDANCE AWARENESS MONTH - September 2014

Did you know that children can suffer academically if they miss 10 percent of the school year? That’s just 18 days or 2 to 3 days a month. And that can add up before you know it.

This September SST-DISCOVERY is celebrating Attendance Awareness Month with a renewed push to get all kids to school—on time, every day. Research shows us that absences add up. That’s as true for kindergartners as it is for 12th graders. It’s as true for excused absences as it is for skipping school.

We know there will be days when your child will miss school, especially when they’re sick. But we know that nationwide, as many as 7.5 million students miss 10 percent of the school year? That’s 135 million days of missed school – and missed opportunities.

And research shows us it also marks the point when students start to fall behind academically because they have missed too many days.

So this September, for Attendance Awareness Month, let’s work together as a community to get all kids to school – on time, every day.

The school will organize events and run contests to raise the attendance awareness among the students and parents.

Please see the infographic for more information and read the suggestions how to improve your child`s attendance.


Celebrating Attendance Awareness month with students!!!

We recognize the classess with the highest attendance rate every week.
Last week`s winners are KB, 3B & 8A classes.

ATTEND TODAY, ACHIEVE TOMORROW


SST-D will STEAM up the education!!!

In the past several years it has become abundantly clear that our students need more than just traditional content knowledge and study skills to make it in today’s workforce.

The U.S. education system has been increasing the amount of content and high stakes testing with a special emphasis on the STEM fields of science, technology, engineering, and math.

On top of this, our students need diverse experiences, creative problem-solving skills, teamwork skills, and the ability to communicate all of this to others to succeed in the working world.
So how can teachers squeeze all this into their classrooms?

Perhaps using an artistic approach to teaching is the key; how can we marry the arts experience with the STEM curriculum?

Many individuals in the educational research and policy worlds, including U.S. Department of Education Secretary Arne Duncan, argue that an “arts education is essential to stimulating the creativity and innovation that will prove critical to young Americans competing in a global economy.”

SST-D has chosen to add the “A” from the arts to go beyond STEM to “STEAM,” and we are not alone.
