In anticipation of those many school-free days at home with your kids, we’ve compiled a list of fun STEAM activities for you to do with your child.

We know that educators and students do amazing, innovative things in the classroom every day. Educators pour their hearts and souls into cultivating a lasting love for learning in every student, and students in turn stretch their minds and explore their passions to achieve some incredible outcomes. We wanted to give the educators and students that partner with Edmentum a chance to show off their hard work and creativity, so earlier this fall, we asked all of our customers to enter our Love for Learning contest. Now, we’re very excited to announce our winners and share their projects!

Read all about these stories and more in this week’s EdNews Round Up.

The Edmentum Educator Network has grown to over 150 members, and in early November, we hosted our first Educator Summit, where we brought an incredible group of 19 educators together for two days in our Richardson, Texas, office. Created by educators for educators, the Educator Summit became an embodiment of the passion and inspiration that moves people to do great things for those two days.
Shikellamy School District, in Sunbury, Pennsylvania, is one district that recently took the leap, partnering with EdOptions Academy to provide flexible virtual learning options for students. Two years in, district is not looking back, as the Shikellamy Virtual Academy has reached previously struggling students and helped recover more than $500,000 in funding. However, as with any major project, getting the virtual program to where it is today was a complicated process and not without challenges.
