Weekly Communication from Sunset Ranch - Dec 3rd-Dec 7th
We are participating in the Hour of Code™
We live in a world surrounded by technology. And we know that whatever field our students choose to go into as adults, their ability to succeed will increasingly depend on understanding how technology works.
But only a tiny fraction of us are learning how technology works. Only 35% of all high schools teach computer science.
That’s why our entire school is joining in on the largest learning event in history: The Hour of Code, during Computer Science Education Week (December 3-9). More than 100 million students worldwide have already tried an Hour of Code. Our Hour of Code is making a statement that Sunset Ranch Elementary is ready to teach these foundational 21st-century skills. To continue bringing programming activities to your students, we want to make our Hour of Code event huge. I encourage you to volunteer, reach out to local media, share the news on social media channels and consider hosting additional Hour of Code events in the community.
This is a chance to change the future of education in Rocklin.
See http://hourofcode.com/us for details, and help spread the word.

Green Screen Habitats
The class then used the green screen with Mr. Haviland's support. They presented their information and it appeared that they were “inside” their habitat. It was sooo cool! After the green screen activity, Mrs. Hudspeth's began making a Google Slide presentation. Students created a title page, listed living things that can be found in their habitats and another slide for non-living things.

Market Day was a success!
Once a trimester, students in 1-3rd use their earned Pawsitives to buy goods and services, most made by students and classes, during MARKET DAY. We had this day on Tuesday, November 27th, and our students LOVED it! Check out the photos below.
Our Angel Tree is in the SR office and ready for YOU!
Kindness Challenge Extended Again because, well, WHY NOT? Be kind.
Poinsettia Delivery on Monday, December 10th
Each week, flyers that would have taken money & supplies to print and time to count out & distribute are placed on the VB on the school website. This is where many of our community partners advertise after school clubs, sports, child care and more.
