New Science Curriculum
We are very excited to announce that IHM is getting a brand new science lab and science curriculum for the 2017-2018 school year! Thanks to the hard work of our School Advisory Committee and the Home and School Association, along with generous contributions from donors, we were able to work with LabLearner to adopt their program in our school. We will be the very first LabLearner school in Wisconsin!
LabLearner™ is a 100% research-based, comprehensive, hands-on science education system aimed at illuminating and clarifying science in a way that is most understood and retained by students from preschool to 8th grade. Developed by scientists and educators with years of experience and research in their fields, LabLearner combines scientific evidence with classroom trends to create a science program that’s easily absorbed and applied. LabLearner aims to promote interaction and experimentation in a laboratory setting to encourage diverse learning and thinking strategies, fostering a community atmosphere of learning! We will be implementing this program with our Kindergarten through 8th grade students. All of our IHM students will have their science classes in our new science lab.
It is also my pleasure to announce that we have found a new middle school science teacher! Mr. Schnell recently graduated from St. Norbert College, with a major in Middle Childhood and Early Adolescence with a concentration in Broadfield Science. He is very passionate about teaching and is excited to get started at IHM. He is a product of Catholic schools and understands the importance of weaving Catholicism into everything that he teaches. We feel very blessed to have him join our team!
