    Dear Hemingway Husky Families,

    It is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2021-22 school year! 

    Over the past four years, Hemingway Elementary School transformed itself into Ernest Hemingway STEAM School (EHSS) with an integrated, inquiry-based curriculum PreK-Grade 8  Much has been accomplished to bring STEAM into curriculum and instructional practices. I am looking forward to another productive year at Hemingway as we launch our fifth year of STEAM integration school wide!


    STEAM is a philosophy of teaching and learning

    Science is a way of finding evidence to support answers to questions

    Technology is any tool used to solve a problem

    Engineering is a means of designing and testing solutions to problems

    Art is the application of human creativity and imagination

    Math is the computational language of measurement, pattern, formation and relationships

    Our mission at Hemingway is to provide all children a safe a supportive learning environment where they can explore (often in the outdoors), take intellectual risks and reach their full potential. Working together with parents, teachers and students, we can reach our goals of excellence in education.

    One of the very special features of EHSS is our location in Ketchum. We are within walking distance to the Big Wood River, the Sun Valley Museum of Art and the Environmental Resource Center. Our community partners are numerous and we feel truly grateful for all of their support. EHSS is indeed a very special school.

    Let’s have a great year together!
