Lakeland Community & STEAM Center
Lakeland Elementary Middle School is committed to the Community School Model which is a place and a set of strategic partnerships among a school and other community resources that promote student achievement, positive conditions for learning and the well-being of families and communities. The Community and STEAM Center is located in a newly renovated Recreation Center connected to the school building. Through the work of a community-based partner, each Community School leverages unique community resources to meet community needs, and maintains a core focus on children, while recognizing that children grow up in families, and that families are integral parts of communities. This integrated approach will lead to student success, strong families and healthy communities. Lakeland as a community school is a hub for students, families, partners and community members to lead, explore, grow and achieve and ultimately enhances the steam center work for community programming. The strategy offers increased capacities and supports in the areas of: family engagement, health & social supports, community development, college and career readiness, enhanced academics & enrichment, and youth development. Currently Lakeland has significant partnerships committed to supporting students and families through resources and volunteers. The Lakeland Community and STEAM Center specifically is a collaborative partnership between Lakeland Elementary Middle School, the University of Maryland Baltimore County and Baltimore City Parks and Recreation. We currently host over 15 afterschool and STEAM programs with collaboration from including but not limited to Lets Go Boys and Girls, Northrop Grumman, Masonville Cove, Digital Harbor Foundation, and Bright Starts. While Lets Go Boys and Girls allows for evaluation of STEAM programs that they currently do support, this does not cover our multitude of offerings.
