Media

In Media during November, PK will be focusing on Fall Holidays and being thankful. K-2 will be working on coding using Scratch JR. Grade 3 will be introduced to Scratch, a more complex coding program. Grades 4 and 5 will work on strengthening their Scratch coding skills from last year, working on some more advanced projects.

Mr. Bouchat would like to thank everyone for participating in the Book Fair. It was a new change using the ewallet, but we worked through it and got books in the hands of our students. If your child has any remaining funds on their ewallet, these can be used to purchase items from Scholastic Online.
