STEM Lighthouse Home

Martin Sortun Elementary is designated by Washington State as a STEM Lighthouse School.  The 2015-2016 school year was our first full year with this designation.  We are excited and also still figuring out what this means for our students, staff, and community.  The purpose of this website is to share about our journey with others while providing educational resources for our building.  Please feel free to click around and explore but also please note that one of the primary themes of our website layout centers around the idea that less is more.  Thank you for visiting!

We've hosted visitors from around Washington State, across the country, and even other countries.  We were the selected elementary site for a district visit by a delegation of superintendents from the Netherlands.  Here's a video of one of the visitors sharing about the experience: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eaWub2a1FB8
