SCPS Mission
The mission of Seminole County
Public Schools is to 
ensure that
all
students acquire the
knowledge, 
skills and attitudes
to be 
productive citizens.



STEAM K-5

One day each week all students participate in STEaM, integrated Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and/or Math electives led by our Stenstrom Elementary teachers and staff. A variety of elective choices may include Lego Robotics, Fun with Forensics, WolfQuest, Amazing Animals, Kitchen Science, Chess Club and Measurement Houses, just to name only a few. Students select a specified number of electives and are assigned to one of his/her interests each period. Our Fall STEaM sessions begin in October and our Spring sessions resume in again in January. 



Garden of Growth K-5

The Stenstrom Garden of Growth is a living outdoor classroom, centrally located on our school campus. We are grateful for our parent volunteers that dedicate their time and resources to maintain the garden and cultivate our butterfly habitat.  It is not uncommon to see our students conducting experiments, observing nature or gathered around an emerging butterfly on any given day. View this News Channel 6 video highlighting our garden of growth!


Coding K-5

We live in a world surrounded by technology. And we know that whatever field our students choose to go into as adults, their ability to succeed will increasingly hinge on understanding how technology works. 

 

That’s why all K-5 Stenstrom students are guided by their classroom teachers through the Code-focused, Seminole County Public Schools' Computer Science 2020 curriculum. This systematic and developmental coding curriculum provides every student an opportunity to hone their computer programming skills. Also, many students may also explore coding during their STEAM elective. 

Our commitment to computer science is a statement that Stenstrom is ready to teach these foundational, 21st century skills. This is a chance to change the future of education starting here in Oviedo.


Art Clubs 4-5

Utilizing a variety of art mediums, Stenstrom's art clubs give students additional opportunities to explore the visual arts. Stenstrom is dedicated to choices in learning. We are pleased to give Stenstrom's budding artists these moments to develop their creative talents.  Thank you to our art teacher for her dedicated supervisory role.

 


Safety Patrols 5

Under the guidance of our staff supervisor and School Resource Officer our fifth grade students volunteer to serve as role models for the young Stenstrom children that look up to them. Safety patrols honorably serve and protect their classmates- guiding and directing children, not traffic. 


Leadership Team 5

Students demonstrating model citizenship and initiative may apply for membership on the Stenstrom Leadership Team. Practicing Stephen R. Covey's 7 Habits of Highly Effective Kids, these extraordinary leaders inspire and support staff and students during our many school events and activities. 


Curiosity Commons K-5

All students K-5 visit Curiosity Commons during their Specials rotation to engage with digital learning lessons aligned with the Florida Computer Science Standards, explore and create solutions using MakerSpace engineering and design tools, and borrow books of interest from our library.  


Digital Literacy K-5

Seminole County Public Schools envisions a learning environment that prepares all students to live and work in a global, information-rich, and digitally-driven world. All of Stenstrom’s students receive digital literacy instruction in order to prepare them to engage in personalized, learner-centered, flexible, and resource-rich lessons; lessons which incorporate: creativity and innovation, communication and collaboration, information and media literacy, career and occupational skills, and life and interpersonal skills. Each K-5 Stenstrom student receives coding instruction in their regular education classroom. Many students have the additional opportunity to explore coding further during STEAM electives. 

 


Running Club K-5

Stenstrom's Runners Club, collaborating with other SCPS elementary schools, provides the opportunity for active Stallions to participate in weekend track meets throughout the school year. To prepare for meets, Stenstrom's runners gather each week just before school for a few laps around the track.  Stenstrom is dedicated to the purpose of choices in learning and through Stenstrom's Runners Club, all learners may explore their athletic talents.  Thank you to our PE coach for his dedicated supervisory role.


Music Clubs 2-5

Stenstrom's Fall 3-5 and Spring 2-5 music clubs provide a symphony of performance opportunities for those Stallions with music interests. Stenstrom is dedicated to creative choices in learning and are proud to provide many opportunities for our students to explore their emerging musical talents.  Thank you to our music teacher for her dedicated supervisory role. 


SECME 3-5

Each year SECME (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics Education) identifies STEM activities to improve student performance and outcomes in the form of competitions with a special emphasis on engineering design concepts. These activities are built into SECME programs throughout the school year culminating in Local, Regional and National Competitions. Regional Competitions are coordinated and sponsored primarily by SECME member universities (UCF) who work directly with one or more school systems in their state or region. Stenstrom students in grades 3rd, 4th and 5th are invited to apply to apply to participate. We are grateful for our staff supervisor for providing Stenstrom students this incredible experience!

 


News Crew 5

Students may apply for the role of delivering the daily news via video to the entire student body. Serving as both role models and motivators, these creative students provide that spark to the start of each school day while also honing their ingenuity and presentation skills.
