ICCCS Curriculum outline

ICCC Schoolwide Program

At ICCC School, we will be implementing Renaissance Accelerated Reader™ and our STEM Program Integrations at every grade level. Our Integrated STEM Program will incite Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics Learning through interactive activities and projects that students at every grade level will be partake inside and outside the classroom.

Through our collection of the Supply Fee each student will be given an Ereader to access Notability and the Renaissance Accelerated Reader™ program and participate in STEM coding and technology learning. Students will also receive a STEM Learning Toolkit with a microscope and learning instruments to help them learn, discover, and design outside the classroom.

Our students will be given an assessment at the beginning of the school year to identify their reading level and comprehension. Students will access their student portal to begin to read books that will build their literacy, vocabulary and comprehension. Students will engage and be challenged daily through assigned AR class. Parents, Students, and Educators will have access to data and reading analytics to track and encourage student progress.

stem contests

At ICCC School, we will encourage our students to participate in the following contests and will be given time in class to create and design their projects.

grade 3 to 5 projects

  • Beaver Computing Contest: Grades 5/6 Designed to introduce kids to computer science foundations, the school-sponsored Beaver Computing Contest requires students to answer 12 multiple choice questions.

  • Ten80 Education Elementary Racing Challenge: Working in teams, students design and engineer remote control cars for optimal speed and stability. Teams can compete in optional National STEM League races to qualify for national finals.

  • Fluor Engineering Challenge: A partnership between Science Buddies and Fluor, the challenge invites teams to engineer simple machines to win $1,000 for their after-school programs. In 2019, the challenge involved creating a machine that could repeatedly knock down a wicket.

  • National Science Bee: Elementary Division Students compete for cash prizes by answering questions in biology, chemistry, astronomy, computer science, and other STEM-related subjects.

  • The Tech Challenge: Administered by the Tech Interactive and sponsored by Dell Technologies, the challenge assigns a problem to teams of students, who address it through innovative, tech-based solutions.

  • Junior FIRST LEGO League: A robotics challenge for kids from Pre-K to eighth grade, the FIRST LEGO League encourages STEM discovery through exploration, engineering design, and teamwork.

grade 6 to 8 projects

  • Purple Comet Math Meet: Middle School Working in teams, middle school students participate in the free online competition by solving 20 math problems in 60 minutes. Teams can enter in small, large, mixed, and noncompetitive categories.

  • eCybermission: Students in grades 6-9 select a mission challenge in areas like energy, environment, food, and robotics. Working in teams, they address a specific community problem in their category, engineer a solution, and submit their findings to a panel of judges.

  • National Science Bee: Middle School Division Students compete for cash prizes by answering questions in biology, chemistry, astronomy, computer science, and other STEM-related subjects.

  • MATHCOUNTS: Math enthusiasts can compete in four rounds with the MATHCOUNTS contest series: a sprint round where they solve 30 math questions in 40 minutes, a problem-solving target round, a team round, and a countdown round. In the countdown round, students get 45 seconds to answer each question.

  • Future City: Middle schoolers design futuristic cities addressing an issue of sustainability in this team-based competition. The contest includes an essay, a scaled model, a project plan, and a presentation.
