Welcome to the 2015-2016 at Mohawk Primary Center
I deem it a privilege and an honor to have a strong team of enthusiastic educators at our building. The Mohawk Primary Team of teachers have been hard at work preparing their classrooms for the upcoming school year. Our staff is thrilled to be given the opportunity to work with you to build the educational foundation upon which your scholar will flourish academically. Mohawk Primary Center provides a positive and welcoming environment in which your scholars will be nurtured, as they develop the building blocks for higher order thinking and learning. We welcome you as partners in your child’s learning and hope you will become a familiar face at Mohawk.
The everyday lives of our youth are more technologically based than ever before. Children spend 95 percent of their time interacting with some type of technology. Our forward thinking school board and superintendent have added to each primary building a full time S.T.E.A.M. teacher. This is very exciting opportunity for our scholars. S.T.E.A.M. classes equip students with skills that are integrated across disciplines. They provide hands-on real-world, engineering experiences that can awaken our scholar’s interest in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math. These classes motivate students to learn new concepts through relevant applications. Learning about engineering increases an awareness of and access to scientific and technical careers.
