News & Notes

  • Thank you to all of our classroom teachers for your efforts in providing opportunities for our students to participate in the Hour of Code. The students were excited, engaged, and were critically thinking as they were coding! What a great opportunity for our students! Please see some of the pictures below.
  • Speaking of critically thinking...our art students have been learning about primary and secondary colors. They were assigned to create a blocked picture with three primary or secondary colors where each color did not touch another block. The students were really having to think and plan as they created their picture! K students were learning about patterns by making birds with certain colors. They concluded with a Pixar clip about birds. See pictures below.
