Strawberry Park Elementary School Celebrated as a Finalist for Excellence in STEM Education Award

(October 4, 2017) – Strawberry Park Elementary School was celebrated as a finalist for The Succeeds Prize for Transformational Impact in an Elementary School for Excellence in STEM Education at an awards ceremony on Tuesday. The Succeeds Prize, the state’s most prestigious awards and recognition event, honors the transformational impact of Colorado’s public schools and educators. Strawberry Park was awarded a $5,000 cash prize for being a finalist and teacher, Katie Weeks, received $1,000 for Educational Leadership.

“As a finalist for this award, Strawberry Park was recognized for the high-quality learning experiences it offers,” said Brad Meeks, Superintendent of Steamboat Springs School District. “As a school district, we strive to set the standard for education regionally, nationally, and globally. This prestigious recognition of Strawberry Parks’ approach to STEM education is helping us do just that.”  

The Succeeds Prize is a collaborative effort between 9NEWS and Colorado Succeeds, a non-partisan business coalition focused on education issues. The Succeeds Prize finalists were selected by a prestigious group of education, government, and business leaders.

“As a finalist for The Succeeds Prize, we became part of a community made up of the best STEM programs in the state,” said Strawberry Park Elementary School Principal, Tracy Stoddard. “We will continue growing and advancing our great STEM program by tapping into the wonderful expertise of our fellow Succeeds Prize finalists.”

As part of The Succeeds Prize, Strawberry Park’s successful STEM practices and techniques will be shared with educators statewide to positively impact Colorado’s nearly 900,000 public school students.

SPE Mission/Vision

about 1 year ago

A mission statement describes in simple terms, but with carefully chosen, powerful words, the purpose of an organization. It can also describe what the organization intends to accomplish. Strawberry Park Elementary’s new adopted mission is Engaged Learners, Demonstrating Character. To support students in fulfilling the mission, teachers will focus on different character traits each trimester. 

During 2nd trimester, we will explore and learn about honesty. Honest people are trustworthy, dependable, and respected by others. An honest person tells the truth, regardless of the consequences. As America's first President, George Washington said in his Farewell Address, "honesty is always the best policy."
