Have you heard those terms but aren't exactly sure what they mean? This is a worldwide initiative to help students start practicing the kinds of thinking they will need for careers in computer science related fields. Check out the district Hour of Code page here.

Holiday Reads

Students received the logs at some point before Thanksgiving. Six Flags requires six hours of reading.


Misplaced the reading log? Email Ms. O and remind her of the class that your student attends and we can get another copy made (logs contain a class specific code for families to log hours online).


Just as a head's up again ... students usually check out one extra book over the break to make sure they have PLENTY of reading. That means ...


PreK might have 1-2 books.

K-2 might have 3 books and

3-5 might have 4 books.


And then there are always the electronic reading options.


They do need to have a clear account (no overdues) for this privilege. We don't charge fines for late books but we do need students to return overdue books before checking out new titles. The best idea? Keep them in backpacks or book boxes at school when not actively reading!

With Electronic Library Resources Students Could ALWAYS Have FIVE EXTRA BOOKS!

In order to access all digital resources students (Sora/Overdrive ebooks or audiobooks (awesome for holiday travel), Pebblego early reader nonfiction reference, Tumblebooks, Encyclopedia Britannica reference sources, etc) will go to Launchpad. This can be accessed from the top right of the main NEISD page or from the library webpage.
