Students will be finishing their radKIDS training next week! There is a Graduation Ceremony scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 19th from 9 - 11 AM. For those able to attend, students will run several drills with the "Redman" (padded) suit. I know this is the first day of Winter Break, but I hope many can attend. Please return the RSVP (sent home last week and also attached) by Wed., Dec. 16th so we know who to expect. Thanks!

Hour of Code

This week is Computer Science Education Week. To celebrate, we will be participating in an Hour of Code, a nationwide event introducing young students to computer programming. On Wednesday morning, we will spend an hour talking about computers and how software is programmed. The hope is that everyone has fun, and that maybe a few are interested enough to continue pursuing coding. Be sure to ask your student all about it!!
