K-8 STEAM charter school
opening August 2014
in Wake Forest, NC
We want to share some preliminary information about the upcoming enrollment process for the 2014-2015 school year. Enrollment will begin in January 2014, once we receive our final approval from the State Board of Education, and run through February 2014. The application package will be available on our website in early January.
Completed applications may be mailed or hand-delivered, and each will be date stamped and assigned a number. Once the enrollment period ends, a lottery process will be used to select applications randomly. Parents will be notified in March 2014 of their enrollment status.
More details about the enrollment process will be available soon.
Envision Science Academy participated in the Gaining STEAM event at the NC Museum of Art Fall Educator Expo on Nov 7th. In the video below, some participants explain why Art is important to STEM.
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!
We would like to thank those who attended the Community Information Session in Rolesville on Saturday, Nov 9th. Due to an emergency at our original venue, the Community Information Session was moved next door to Fitzgerald's #1 Seafood Restaurant. With a larger than expected turnout for the event, we had exceeded the restaurant's maximum occupancy. So, the group had to move outside to the restaurant's patio area. Thank you so much for braving the cold and sticking with us. We greatly appreciate your continuous show of support!
And a BIG thank you to Victoria Banks and her staff at Fitzgerald's #1 Seafood Restaurant in Rolesville. We appreciate your hospitality and accommodating us at the last minute. We enjoyed the delicious food, friendly service, and inviting atmosphere.
On a different note, we would also like to thank our newest supporter, Triangle Biostatistics. Triangle Biostatistics has generously donated the use of their conference room for our monthly board meetings until we move into our own facility. We cannot thank you enough!
