STEAM Items Donation

Red Bud Elementary is proud to announce a new Specials class this year! Instead of Computers, all students will participate in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) once per week. This class will develop critical thinking skills for students as they ask thoughtful questions, discover answers, apply what they learn, work as a team, and problem-solve creatively.

Below is a list of household materials that we will use to create our STEAM projects. If you are willing to donate any of the items listed, you can send them with your child to the classroom at any time throughout the year. We will continue to collect these items all year long.

Thank you in advance for helping our class collect these items for STEAM! Red Bud Elementary looks forward to providing new, relevant learning opportunities for all of our students.
