This morning, at the Tennessee STEM Innovation Network conference in Nashville, TN, Northview Middle School was recognized as a STEM certified school!
Tennessee STEM School Designation was developed by the Tennessee Department of Education in partnership with the Tennessee STEM Innovation Network. STEM Designated Schools are recognized for their commitment to integrating quality STEM teaching and learning practices for all students within a school building. The Tennessee Department of Education honors Tennessee STEM Designated Schools each year at the STEM Innovation Summit. STEM Designated Schools are provided early access to STEM initiatives statewide.
In the state of Tennessee, there were a total of 27 schools awarded as a STEM designated school. The Dyer County School System applauds the students and staff of Northview Middle School for being one of only five middle schools selected to receive this prestigious honor. Becoming a STEM designated school is highly rigorous and requires many additional hours of hard work and planning that exceed the regular school day hours.
Mr. Garner - NMS principal, says, "We are so excited and honored to receive STEM Designation. It is a recognition of the commitment, work ethic, and dedication of our district, community, and especially our staff to enhance the educational experience for our students while attending Northview Middle School. We feel this process has heightened our awareness of the skills and mindset needed to prepare our students for an ever-changing world."
Please join us in congratulating NMS for receiving this tremendous achievement!
