This Week @ Jones....

Celebrations, Updates, Priorities, and Tidbits

A Reminder from Ms. Sorensen about "Hour of Code"

Hour of Code this year is next week December 7-13. We will use your computer lab time or math specialist time. I have adjusted your specialist times to give your students an hour coding. If you see any mistakes or scheduling problems please let me know. K & 1 will be in the classroom using iPads, everyone else will be in the computer lab.


I am planning a "kick- off" event for December 8th- 9:30-10 for grades 2-5. If K and 1 want to come you are invited, but I think the presentation is geared more to the older kids.

I know it is your planning time but hopefully you can stop by for a few minutes and see what your class is doing- its pretty amazing to see the students so engaged. This year they have added a Mine Craft and Star Wars tutorial!

We are still looking for volunteers so if you have parents that are computer programmers or just want to volunteer and learn too- send them to Lexus or myself.

Thanks to everyone who helped to coach and support our "Girls on the Run"!
