3 STEM Enrichment Program Purpose: Ilima Intermediate School’s Mission:Through teamwork and perseverance Ilima Intermediate will help students achieve high expectations.STEM Enrichment Program Purpose:To build teamwork, perseverance, & critical thinking skills that are necessary to be successful in our world today.Our program purpose is to make sure students develop the teamwork, perseverance, and critical thinking skills to compete in the world today. Not only do we want our students to achieve all of these skills but we want them to problem solve on their own without asking for answers and to inspire them. We are creating a pathway for our students to be successful from the elementary schools (Colleen and Justin) to the high school (John Mccague) to college (University of Hawaii Engineering).
4 Looking at the data of the HSA scores from the past 5 years, reading has remained stable, math has gone up from last year, and science has gone done. This program was developed to help students develop the problem solving skills to help bring up the HSA scores in the areas of math, reading, and science.

How this program will achieve this goal is to use school wide strategies and have students take ownership of their own learning. But more importantly, this program success will lie with the parents. This program will rely on encouraging your child through the challenging times and make sure that you are there to support and let them know that you care about them.Its not only the support that they get in the classroom but also the support from the student taking ownership of what they learn and from their home.Student OwnershipSelf ReflectionStudent checklistCompleting projectsCollaborating with othersGoal setting

19 Grading Policy On Report Card Status Report Scale Page 2On Report CardStatus Report ScaleProficiency Level DescriptorsAME = Meets with ExcellenceDemonstrates excellent achievement of the targeted benchmarks.BMP = Meets ProficiencyDemonstrates acceptable achievement of the targeted benchmarks.CDP = Developing ProficiencyIs approaching acceptable achievement of the targeted benchmarks.FWB = Well Below ProficiencyDoes not demonstrate acceptable achievement of the targeted benchmarks, or provides no evidence.Grades will not be uploaded onto Webgrader every week. Standard based grading which is used in the elementary school is how this program will grade your child.
