    This is what we know as of July 17, 2020:

    The Anchorage School Board and the Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Deena Bishop, are still working on the 2020-21 Plan. ASD has decided that secondary schools will be using the Quarter Model.  At Anchorage STrEaM Academy our students will have the Math / Science block or the Social Studies / Language Arts block, changing at quarter.

     

    When school meets in person, students may be dropped off at 7:30 AM, and school starts at 8:00. Lunch times vary by cohort, and school is out at 1:30pm. Students should be picked up by 2:00 pm at the latest.

    For more information contact the school at 742-9000

Classes:

  • All students will have math, science, social studies and language arts core courses, taught in a quarter block. Students will have three classes per day.  School begins at 8:00 am and ends at 1:30 pm. Each student will have two core classes and one Mission/Vision Class. All classes focus on an integrated, project-based approach. 

    • Math / Science / Mission-Vision
    • Social Studies / Language Arts / Mission-Vision

    The Mission-Vision block encompasses Outdoor Education (outdoor recreation, wilderness safety, backpacking, first aide, etc.), Project-Based Learning and STEM (robotics, micro-photography, etc)

    three pillars

Lunch:

  • We do not provide district food service lunches. Students are expected to bring their own lunch. 

    We do have a partnership with WOODEN SPOONS, a catering company that delivers healthy and delicious lunches.  Wooden Spoons Website

    Due to Covid-19 restrictions we may not have Emergency Back-up Lunches available for purchase this fall.  If your family needs assistance providing lunches, please call the school counselor, Amy Bonertz, and we will find assistance for your family.

Technology:

  • We have Chromebook laptops, and much of our curriculum is accessed online including Google Classroom. We are a BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) school: Students may bring laptops, tablets and smartphones, provided they follow school, classroom and district policies on responsible use. Students may not use the university's wifi- they must connect to the ASD wifi. Students should only use devices in class at the direction of the classroom teacher, and STrEaM is not liable for lost, stolen or damaged items. 

Volunteers:

  • STrEaM does not require parents to volunteer, but it is a critical commitment we ask you to make. If you are interested in helping with a planned event or if you have a particular passion please call the front office and we will help you get started!  Fundraisers, Student Showcases, our annual I AM celebration, and Sports are some of the many opportunities we have available for volunteers.  Call Mrs. Biondich at 742-9002
