First Day of School-8/26/13

The boys started a new magnet school this year.  Hayden is in 5th grade and Emerson is in 3rd grade.  They were both accepted into the STEM program last April and we couldn't be more excited.  Their schooling will focus on problem-based learning using science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM).  This approach will be used in all of their subjects everyday.  I think that they will enjoy this method of learning moreso than the traditional "sit on your butt at a desk and quietly do paperwork" method.  Visual and hands-on learning seems to really click for my kids so I know they will be happier at this school.  I can't wait to hear how their first day went!
