I know 1 thing. Reading is a great thing 2 do!

The 2019 school year is underway and AIMS is ready to roll.  The theme this year is “STEM”.  Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. The goal of the curriculum is to provide students with multiple experiences to cultivate creative experimentation. Students will innovate and apply background knowledge to solve new problems and develop a multitude of ideas using exciting innovative technologies.
