Future Ready Students: Full STEAM Ahead

Hamilton County Schools is so proud of the efforts of our teachers, leaders, staff, and community during this unprecedented moment. Because of you, Hamilton County Schools truly does lead! We certainly notice and appreciate that teachers have shifted on a dime to provide instruction and support to our students, and our students are finding new ways to connect and continue to learn. Our commitment to ensuring students are Future Ready has never been more evident than over the last couple of weeks.

We recognize the need for teachers to plan new unique learning opportunities, and for students to engage in science, technology, engineering, arts, and math (STEAM) activities and pursue individual interests. This Thursday, April 2, we will have a STEAM Day.

STEAM Day will provide time for all teachers to continue planning lessons to engage our students in the coming weeks. It will also allow students to take a break and explore art, music, science explorations, dance, or the related art form of their choice. Some students may even elect to spend the day enjoying their favorite books. We hope students enjoy a day to refresh their minds with hands-on STEAM activities.

Below is a list of some activities students can feel free to engage in throughout the day:

Please remember it is important to keep our physical distance, and to follow CDC guidelines for staying healthy:

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick. This means maintain a distance of at least six (6) feet.
  • Do not gather in groups of 10 or more.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash. If you don’t have a tissue, use your elbow and not your hands to cover the sneeze or cough.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
