This year, Fifth Grade at Sato would like to provide our 110 students with a true enrichment experience, a chance to build a real boat.  Through Wind and Oar Boat School, students become young designers and hands on wood workers, while they take part in building a full sized row boat from scratch. This opportunity will foster critical collaboration skills, give kids the chance to experience a real life engineering process from beginning to end, and will help cultivate necessary life long skills that are often times over looked by general education. Wind & Oar provides a full STEAM experiential learning opportunity.


The total cost for this project is $5300. We raised $1500 last year to put towards this year and our PTO has given us $2000 from our school's jog-a-thon this fall.  We need to raise just $1800 more and now with the First Tech match, that's just less than $10 a student! 


At Sato, we are fortunate to serve a community that provides abundant and generous support to our staff and students. We are dedicated to providing a rigorous education for each and every child, and to fostering each student's academic growth through STEAM integration. Additionally, we are committed to creating an environment that promotes our kindergarten through fifth grade students through hands-on collaborative opportunities.
