Hour of Code Update

Hour of Code is off to a great start!


Students have been using http://tynker.com and http://code.org to complete their Hours of Code. On Monday alone, our students dedicated 4,620 minutes to coding and wrote a total of 4,950 lines of code! Wow! I can't wait to see what our grand total will be.


If you're interested in learning more about integrating coding and computer programming into your class, please contact me!

Jared Box Project

I know this isn't tech-related, but since I am also one of our Student Council teacher leaders, I wanted to remind everyone that we are collecting items for the Jared Box Project. If you're interested in donating, drop off items to Tina or me. Please note that all items must be new and able to fit inside a shoebox-sized container. All donations will be given to chronically-ill children at Lutheran General Hospital. They are especially in need of items for infants/toddlers and teenagers! Thank you to all who have donated so far!
