Visit to Lakeland 

We took a field trip to Lakeland Community College on Thursday and engaged in the college life!  Students took the COMPASS college readiness exam and explored other opportunities while touring the campus.


Upcoming Virtual Day

Mix-It-Up at Lunch Day
Mix-it-Up Day at iSTEM lunch was on Tuesday! Mix-It-Up at Lunch Day is a national campaign launched to encourage students to identify, question and cross social boundaries. On October 27th over 6,000 schools nationwide commit to encourage their students to sit with someone new at lunch. The idea is that when students interact with those who are different from them, biases and misperceptions can fall away. (http://www.tolerance.org/mix-it-up/what-is-mix)
