Dear Polaris Community,
As our students and staff enjoy second semester, it is time once again for our parent community to gather and celebrate our wonderful school.
Romancing the Vine is a week away, and there is great excitement growing around this annual event. STEM has now moved to “STEAM” within the national dialogue to incorporate the Arts into Science and Technology education. As you many of you know, Polaris has a long history of integrating art throughout the curriculum and has greatly benefited in past years from these grants. Unfortunately, the grants are ending and we are now seeking community support to continue with our STEAM programming.
This type of enriched programming allows for all of the wonderful seminars, assemblies, and technology that our students have had access to in the past, as well as supports the high-level arts curriculum that makes our school unique. Imagine if we could create a plentiful STEAM fund that would allow us to bring in movie-makers, local scientists, art curators, city engineers, etc. who could extend the classroom curriculum and enrich the opportunities to our children. This is an exciting time in Arts-Science integrated education. Please join us for Romancing the Vine on Feb. 20 at the Space Gallery from 7 to 9:30 p.m.
Help our school continue to shine brightly,
Principal Karin Johnson
