Hour of Code

The Hour of Code was very successful! The students LOVED coding. Many added coding apps to their iPad along with the free TYNKER app that was available last week. There are many coding books for kids out there if you are interested in providing more experiences for your child in coding. There are also many free online coding programs available.

iPad Check

Please check your child's iPad on occasion for games that are not related to school. These games are not beneficial academically and just take up memory space on the iPad. We are constantly adding apps for school use and are finding that we need space. You can also help by wiping down the iPad with a microfiber cloth. Remember too... you can delete games/apps on your child's iPad that are a distraction and you can take the iPad away anytime that you feel necessary.

Discovery Quests coming Week of 12/14
