Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics (STEAM)
To provide our students with the best opportunities, and to keep pace with the constantly evolving state of education, Sky Crossing Elementary (SCRES) is working to become a Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics (STEAM) focused school.
We have a partnership with the Arizona Science Center and they will be training our staff over the next couple of years. Our STEAM framework will consist of the following:
Classroom project-based learning
Before and after school programming (STEAM Focused)
“We are very excited to bring a Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics focus to Sky Crossing Elementary. STEAM programming helps students develop much-needed skills such as problem-solving, collaboration, and critical thinking that will help them succeed academically, personally, and professionally. The opportunities in this field are endless, and we believe that our students will benefit tremendously,” says Principal Chad Caudle.
Early Learning Programs
Early learning programs lay the foundation and building blocks needed to prepare young, eager learners for success in kindergarten and elementary school. There are many long-lasting benefits associated with structured early learning programs, such as emotional and social growth, motor skill development, and so much more.
- Little Scholars Preschool: Students in the Little Scholars Preschool program prepare for kindergarten in a developmentally appropriate, play-based program. This program is tuition based.
- Serving Unique Needs (SUN) Kids Preschool: SUN Kids Preschool provides special education services for 3- to 5-year-old students with special or unique needs and who are not yet eligible for kindergarten. All students must be screened prior to placement in the program. Screening appointments are available year-round. The SUN Kids program only accepts preschoolers from inside the district boundary and is not eligible for open enrollment.
