Interim SBAC Testing
Hour of Code December 3-9, 2018
Many of our teachers are planning to do this with their students, although most will wait until the week before break because of all of the testing going on this week. I tried a coding activity this weekend from the Hour of Code website and it was quite fun and challenging!
8th Grade Graduation Party
Additionally, our Choir and String Quartet had the opportunity to perform yesterday at Hillsdale Mall. Below are some pictures from Saturday. I am working on getting footage from the concert to share and hopefully place in the Google Classroom.

Are you watching your kids scroll through life, with their rapid-fire thumbs and a six-second attention span?
Join us for a showing of SCREENAGERS, the powerful new documentary that reveals how tech time impacts kids’ mental, physical, and social-emotional development.
Physician and filmmaker Dr. Delaney Ruston offers solutions on how adults can help kids navigate the digital world and find balance. This award-winning film depicts the messy family struggles over cell phones, social media, video games, and academics.
Parents, students, educators, and community members welcome! Free admission and light refreshments. Spanish interpretation will be available.
Redwood City School District Parent Education Series events are sponsored by Unidos PTO, Adelante School, Kennedy Middle School, Sequoia Healthcare District, and Sequoia Union High School District.
