On Wednesday, February 15 students are invited to attend the "Mardi Gras - House of Cards Snack Shack" which will take place in the cafeterias from 2:00-3:30. There will be Mardi Gras themed decorations, a variety of fun group card games, board games, table ping pong, music, and more! Pizza will be on sale, but the popcorn is still free! The STEM Academy Snack Shacks, sponsored by the STEM Parents Group, are a wonderful and safe way for 7th and 8th graders to socialize after school. I hope all will be able to attend.
Please check out the video done by Sandwich community TV for the STEM Journey.
