Mrs. Shaffer’s STEM Update

Hello! This week we started a new STEM/Library rotation. Students in grades K-2 started STEM classes and students in 3-5 switched to library classes. This will continue until the week of February 8th-11th. This week we worked in the Scratch Jr. app. It was a chance for most students to revisit this app and their coding skills. Next week all K-2 students will be working in their Code.org accounts, including kindergarten for the first time this year!

STEM this summer....You may have noticed information about Camp Invention in the newsletter as well. We will be bringing this program back to Longmont Estates June 7th-11th, 2021. Hopefully we’ll be able to gather in person, but there will be a virtual option if that isn’t possible. Check out the link for more information.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

Mrs. Shaffer
