FLORHAM PARK, NJ - Holy Family School in Florham Park is opening its cheerful yellow doors on Nov. 16 to all public and private school students.  The school is conducting a STEM night from 7:00-9:00 p.m. at Holy Family School.  It is free of charge.  Any child may attend from any school in grades PreK-8th grade if they are accompanied by a parent.  The purpose of the evening is to introduce STEM to the rest of the community.  STEM lessons are seen everyday at Holy Family School.  

As one middle school student said, "Our school is so great.  We have everything here!
Chromebooks, STEM and the best teachers.  We want to invite other students in to see how amazing it is.  We are planning very cool STEM experiments for that night."  
 
During the STEM night at Holy Family School, there will be parents as well as the principal available for school tours.  
 
The school's principal, Dawn Paskalides, is thrilled with the idea of this event.  "I love the idea of bringing the entire community of Florham Park together for an educational and fun event.  We are all so proud of our school,  and we want to invite all public and private school students to attend. "  
 
STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) education is active and focuses on a student-centered learning environment. Students engage in questioning, problem solving, collaboration, and hands-on activities while they address real life issues. In STEM education, teachers function as classroom facilitators. They guide students through the problem-solving process and plan projects that lead to mastery of content and STEM proficiency. STEM proficient students are able to answer complex questions, investigate global issues, and develop solutions for challenges and real world problems while applying the rigor of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics content in a seamless fashion. STEM proficient students are logical thinkers, effective communicators and are technologically, scientifically, and mathematically literate.
