Connecting, Collaborating, Creating and Learning!

December 2015

Our Scholastic Book Fair was a Huge Success!

Thanks to all of the students and parents who shopped at our Scholastic Book Fair this month! Our media center has now earned over $2000 in funds to purchase more library materials for our students and staff to enhance our curriculum and enjoyment of reading.

Computer Coding in the Media Center!

All students participated in an "Hour of Code" during library media classes this month. Grades 3-5 students worked on modules featuring Minecraft and Star Wars characters to learn the basics of computer programming. K-2 students worked on apps like Kodable and Daisy the Dino to master the basics of programming. During the break, have your child visit the Code.org site to try more computer coding lessons and activities. This site firmly believes that "Every student in every school should have the opportunity to learn computer science." This year's focus is to inspire more girls to learn computer programming. Watch the video below and get inspired!

Please note that this video was created last spring before our school websites were redesigned, so you would want to click on the "Student Links" on the bottom right of the homepage to access Destiny Quest.
