What is STEAM?
America is once again turning to innovation as a way to ensure a prosperous future.
However, innovation remains tightly linked with Science, Technology, Engineering and Math – (STEM).
Art + Design are methods to transform our economy in the 21st century,  the same as science and technology did in past centuries.
By integrating Art + Design to the equation — to transform STEM into STEAM we are incorporating all of the necessary methods to ensure higher education integration.

YMCA Program

  1. YMCA of Greater Miami is dedicated to providing high-quality, affordable child care to fit the needs of working parents. Our highly trained staff interacts with children while incorporating the YMCA’s 4 core values of Caring, Honesty, Respect and Responsibility to everyday fun and games. The Y offers numerous opportunities for children to express their talents in the arts, sports and other areas of interest. Kids find out what success is all about in an approach that says everybody plays, everybody wins. Time is set aside for tackling homework, with adult help available and there is always a healthy snack provided. Please contact your local 'Y' for further information about their programs.

School Club News

To further our mission, Cypress K-8 Center offers a variety of extra-curricular clubs for our students to join and are offered to as many students as possible.
Some clubs are open to all students while enrollment in others is by invitation or audition.
Most clubs require a teacher recommendation before a student may join. 

As with any school function, appropriate behavior and effort is required to continue with any of the programs. Continuous attendance is required so the student can gain the most benefit from the programs. 

Students who are in the After School Care program can participate in the following clubs.

The students in cheerleading lead our school in creating an atmosphere of support for our sports teams as well as a fun culture where school spirit is a driving force.
4th, 5th & 6th Grade students who have demonstrated leadership qualities on a regular basis are chosen to assist the faculty and staff in school functions that support the school and community. 
5th & 6th grade students interested in running for Student Council Officers campaign the 1st month of school.  Homeroom Representatives are selected after officers elections have been conducted and they are selected by their classmates and their homeroom teachers.
Our goal is to improve our school. We participate in canned food drives, toy drives and other activities to serve the community. Representatives are responsible students and are expected to work independently. They should have a "1" in effort and an "A" in conduct as they are representing their class and are the leadership role models for our school.
6th grade students begin training to compete again rival schools. Through had work and teambuilding students learn the value of sportsmanship and sport disciplines.
