Outdoor Learning Environment Fundraiser – June 21st!

Mark your calendars for June 21st from 5:30-8:30pm!
You will want to bring the family out to Homestead Campus for the Outdoor Learning Environment fun, family-friendly fundraiser event!
Each class from Innocademy will buddy up with another class and iCademy will collaborate as a whole school to collect items for theme-based packages that will be raffled during the event! Your family will receive a free raffle ticket for every item you donate! What a win-win!
Please take a look at the link, below, to see what you may be able contribute and sign up – – it doesn’t even have to be from the same class of your child(ren) if it is something you can easily contribute!
As always, THANK YOU for your generosity and helping us build out our Homestead Outdoor Learning Environment for all our kids!
Thanks so much! Hope to see you on the 21st!

What IS The Outdoor Learning Environment, Anyway?

When we first moved into Homestead Campus 6 years ago, we began developing a vision for what the Outdoor Learning Environment could become! Over the last 6 years it has gone from a grassy field full of pricker bushes to a place where students thrive and they, as well as the greater community, get a chance to sharpen their saws! Please see below for the artist’s original rendering of the vision for the space. While the 2nd slide says “future” the future is HERE! And we need your help to make this vision a reality! Please plan on attending the fundraiser on June 21st!

OLD Info…In Case You Missed It =)

Check Out Camp Infinity!

Camp Infinity is a four-day summer technology camp for girls entering 5th to 8th grade that introduces technology as fun and fulfilling and inspires the pursuit of technology education. MCWT Foundation created it to address the primary reasons girls lose interest in technology: confidence, social relevance, and social (peer) acceptance. The camp:

  • ●  Builds confidence and capability with hands-on technology activities such as robotics and web design
  • ●  Demonstrates that technology is fun through the execution of engaging projects with other girls, with high school/collegiate girls as counselors
  • ●  Reinforces social relevance by featuring visitors from the local technology community that explain how their work is important to society at large
