Steele students participate in Slow Food Denver’s Seed-To-Table School Garden Projects. This year, classrooms will be given a chance to plant a vegetable garden, learn about soil quality and composting methods, to study bees and pollination, look at the role of worms and insects in gardens, and learn farming techniques of Native Americans. As in the culinary adventures, the Seed-To-Table project exposes students to new foods and flavors, such as stuffed squash blossoms, Indian Pumpkin Stew, and fried green tomatoes, to expand their palates and to encourage culinary adventures at home.

The Steele sensory library is a collection of tools and equipment available for all Steele teachers to check out and use to support any child struggling with motor delays or sensory issues. Typically, DPS tools like these are only avaiable for children who qualify for special education service. The Steele PTA felt it was important to make tools like this available to all students. In 2009 the PTA funded and opened the Sensory Library. The library is housed in room 205 and overseen by the Occupational Therapist, the Special Ed staff, and a PTA volunteer. The program is completely unique , widely used and appreciated by the teachers at Steele. Best of all it has helped many, many children become more successful in a classroom setting!
Steele students are selected by their peers to represent them. The Leadership group meets weekly to discuss school issues and ideas.
Scholarships are available to those students who need financial support for school activities and events.
