Introduction

We are excited for the 2016-17 school year! With your assistance and ongoing support, we anticipate another successful year. We all share the same common purpose, to promote a community of life-long learners. Your active participation is a critical element to our success.

We are working diligently to ensure that we foster an environment conducive to the highest level of learning. Let’s work together to set up our students for success by:

  • Building strong relationships 
  • Encouraging each student to meet his/her fullest potential 
  • Collaborating at all levels of the organization
  • Promoting ownership in the school community

We invite the community to discover the adventures we will take in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) by actively participating in school events. 

Please make note of our new school hours.We have adjusted our start and end times for the school year. We will begin at 8:40 a.m. and conclude at 3:35 p.m. The main doors will open for students at 8:27 a.m. During early release Wednesdays, the start time is the same, while our student release time will be 1:15 p.m. 

If you should ever have any questions, please feel free to contact us at any time. We would be more than happy to assist you!


Important Message

We would like to remind parents that school begins at 8:27 a.m. We consider students tardy starting at 8:40 a.m. We kindly ask all parents to help us in ensuring that all students are to school on time so they can participate in a full day of learning. Thank you for your support.

A Message from our Principal

Dear Estrella Vista Families and Community Members,

Welcome to Estrella Vista STEM Academy! Children are at the center of our approach to teaching. Stepping away from skill and drill instruction, we ensure our students have skills to compete in the 21st century. Our world class programs require students to be reflective, creative, critical thinkers, and real world problem-solvers. In year one of our adventure, we will focus on making transformations in science, technology, and engineering. 

Starting with science, we will carve out time during the school day to ensure science is taught daily. We will implement an inquiry-based model of hands-on learning to develop a richer understanding of the world we live in. Our next focus will be to maximize the capacity of technology. We are getting data and information at an ever-increasing rate. With a laptop for each child, we will use technology as a learning tool. We plan to implement digital citizenship through modeling, exploring, and applying knowledge to real world experiences. Finally, engineering will be critical to the success of our 21st century learners. We will focus on design-thinking which involves a lot of collaboration. Through this process, our students will develop empathy as they establish cooperative relationships with other students. Together, they will define problems and develop ideas of possible solutions. 

Estrella Vista STEM Academy is sure to be adventurous. The opportunities are endless. With an emphasis on science, technology, and engineering in our first year of STEM implementation, it is sure to be a dynamic learning experience. Please take a few moments to read more about our program. We look forward to growing our students!

Sincerely,

Richard K. Ramos
