Family STEM Challenge Family STEM Challenge
As part of our STEM Program and family engagement at Austin Elementary School, we would like to invite families to participate in a fun, engaging, and non-mandatory STEM activity to complete once a month. The activity would aim to involve members of your family group and would use simple and common materials found around your house. You will not need to purchase any additional materials.  This month's Family STEM Challenge is to design and build an Acorn Chute .  Please see the Google Document for instructions. You may submit your photos/videos to the Google Form or to the FlipGrid for the weekly announcements.

wifi Complimentary Internet Offer from Comcast
Effective Monday, March 16, 2020, we are putting in place two substantial program enhancements to help these families deal with this crisis. Click here for all details.
  • We will make it even easier for low-income families who live in a Comcast service area to sign up by offering new customers 60 days of complimentary Internet Essentials service, which is normally available to all qualified low-income households for $9.95/month.
  • Also, we are increasing Internet speeds for the Internet Essentials service from 15/2 Mbps to 25/3 Mbps for all new and existing customers, which will be the speed of the service going forward. In this way, we will ensure that Internet Essentials customers will be able to use their Internet service for all their increased needs as a result of this health crisis.
