A new and unique art piece now decorates the halls of Albert Leonard Middle School. The mural, titled "Through it All, We Stick Together," was created from artwork from all Albert Leonard Middle School art students. Art teachers said the meaning behind the mural came from not trying to forget this past year — but trying to remember it. Students attending classes virtually were given the option of picking up a stick at the school or creating a digital stick that art teachers could print, cut and glue onto the mural.
We are incredibly proud of our very own Trinity Elementary teachers, Terri Sanchez Agravat and Johanna Vasquez, for helping author a valuable article on the importance of family involvement in STEM education, specifically in marginalized communities. Terri and Johanna helped detail how marginalized communities historically are not represented in STEM education and careers due to lack of resources, leading to them creating a pilot program known as Family Outreach and Research in Education and STEM (FLORES). FLORES works with families to support students ages 5-7 in and outside of the classroom by encouraging STEM learning opportunities in everyday life.
