All of our students from kindergarten through eight grade are able to design and create in this innovative environment. Kindergarten through fourth grade visit the lab once a week for the entire year. Fifth graders come twice a week for the entire year. Our middle school students will be in the lab three times a week for the entire year. Our program is designed to be an opportunity for students to learn, collaborate, imagine, create and problem-solve in a hands-on environment.

Please click on the the STEAM Class Page at the right of this page to see what students are doing in the STEAM Lab.


My name is Jane Kennedy, and I will be the new STEAM facilitator this year.   For the past three years, I taught middle school science and 6th grade religion at Frassati Catholic Academy.  In addition to my teaching duties, I also led the National Junior Honors Society group.  I have taught in both the public and private sector prior to that, and  I hold a B.A. in Elementary Education with a minor in child psychology and a M.Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction.  My husband and I have 3 college aged boys and a one year old dog named Millie.  I am thrilled to be joining SJCS!
Grades K-3 will receive a Pass/Fail for their grade in STEAM. Grades 4-8 will be receiving a letter grade for STEAM.  I will link the rubric that will be used for grades 4-8.

Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.
