Strive to be the best FOR the world, not IN the world.”
Dear STEAM Community,
We are excited to begin this 2020-21 school year. Per current County Public Health and the Governor, we will begin this year with full Distance Learning. We’re hopeful that as COVID-19 cases in San Diego County decrease, we will be able to safely have our students back on campus this year for those choosing to return.
Distance Learning begins for all our students on Thursday, August 27, 2020. We are continuing preparations to bring students back to campus as soon as it is safe to do so. In the meantime, our highest priority is to ensure that our students continue to learn and make academic progress.
My mission as your principal is also my passion: to maintain and grow a rigorous teaching and learning environment that provides every student with a sense of belonging while helping students to grow intellectually, emotionally and socially even in these unusual circumstances. It is critical to every student’s success that they promote from middle school with the skills necessary to pursue and achieve their goals and dreams.
It is important to me to have an open-door policy and ongoing, open communication. I know STEAM to be a highly engaging, wonderful experience for students and I want to make sure you and your student have a positive experience and get the most out of what our school has to offer. Come by or call our front office if you need anything. Our office hours are from 8:00am-3:00pm.
As the above quote states, “Strive to be the best FOR the work, not IN the word,” I am a firm believer in working together for the betterment of all our student’s lives. There is no “I” in TEAM: Together Everybody Achieves More. I am looking forward to this unique year and working with your students and you.
Andrea Radmilovich, aka “Rad” Principal, STEAM Academy
