|Important eighth-grade application information deadline information: STEM commitment forms from current eighth-grade STEM students will not be due until Monday, April 25. This new deadline, extended from the April 8 date, is reflected on the parent letter that went home the week of March 28. This adjustment has been made to provide families with an opportunity to attend the high school parent meeting on Thursday, April 14, before making a final decision.|

|Information about applications to the Whitcomb Middle School STEM program for 2016-17
Dear Whitcomb School students and families,
At this time of year we ramp up our STEM recruitment campaign for incoming sixth-, seventh-, and eighth-grade students. This year will be different, as we expand opportunities and offerings. This is exciting news to share and a big step forward for Whitcomb and for our district!
The seeds of the STEM program have taken deep root at the middle-level, and for the 2016-17 school we are expanding the program into a schoolwide experience so all students can participate in the future-focused things that have developed through our four-year STEM middle school initiative. Just as technology has moved more deeply into our daily experience, we envision the same expansion for all of our students.
As a result, all Whitcomb students will get a first-class educational experience rooted in 21st century themes such as interdisciplinary project-based learning and increased exposure to relevant content areas, including engineering and computer science. This is a very big step for us, and we are proud that Marlborough Public Schools continues to lead the way in developing a comprehensive and rigorous experience for all students.
As a result of this enhancement, there will no longer be a need for an application process to enter a separate STEM pathway at the middle level. The principles of innovative teaching and learning cultivated at Whitcomb over the last four years will be the cornerstones for the way we educate all students going forward.
It’s also important to note that this enhancement will be complimented by new opportunities for students accelerating in area of mathematics.
We invite you to join us for an informational night to explore all of these new and exciting opportunities at 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 26, in the Whitcomb Auditorium. This meeting will be designed for parents; information will be shared with students separately. Please put the date on your calendar. We hope to see you there as we take the next steps together.
Brian Daniels, Principal
Dan Riley, Director of STEM
