Great News on the School Front

Incline Middle School just received word that they are now considered a “Designated STEM School” by the Nevada Governor’s Office of Science, Innovation and Technology.

Incline High and Elementary Schools received their Designations last year.  This means that the Incline schools are officially the first K-12 Governor Designated STEM Pathway in the state of Nevada.  This means that EVERY Incline student is guaranteed a high-quality STEM education across their entire K-12 experience. This is quite an accomplishment for our small schools.  

Here’s more info on the designation: https://osit.nv.gov/STEM/Gov_Designated_STEM_Schools/

Watch for more in-depth information here in the SnapShot in the coming weeks.

Incline Elementary School

IES is hosting a huge Science event in collaboration with SWEP (Sierra Watershed Education Partnership). 

This is a two-day STEM event of interactive science activities and a “Family STEM Night” supported by AAUW (American Association of University Women).

If you have a couple of hours, they would love another volunteer or two. Reach out directly to the school if you can help: 775-832-4250.

Incline High School

The Highlander Hometown BBQ at the Hyatt was the place to be seen last weekend. The event was a smashing success as the main fundraiser for Incline High School.  Many thanks to the Dave & Cheryl Duffield Foundation (DCDF), Dogwood Builders, McWhinney, IVCBA and all the other sponsors and advertisers.
