November 7th - 11th
Parent - Teacher Conferences
El lunes, 7 de noviembre de 4 a 7 tendremos la noche de conferencias de padres y maestros. Puedo compartir información sobre matemáticas, lectura y escritura con usted y responder cualquier pregunta que pueda tener.
Lost and Found
If your child is missing a coat or jacket, please come visit the front office to see if your child's items are in our "Lost and Found". With the colder weather fast approaching, we want to make sure your child is bundled!
Do not forget to visit the Lost and Found in the cafeteria if you are coming to Parent Teacher Conferences on Monday, November 7th!
National STEM Day
National STEM Day is on November 8th and celebrates science, technology, engineering, and math throughout the United States. It's a great day to build interest in these careers early on and can lead to success later in life. It is also a BuzzWorthy day to celebrate because Randolph Howell Elementary STEM School is STEM Accredited!
Below are a few fun ways to make the most of your STEM Day celebrations:
1. Visit a Virtual Lab:
Visit 3M: The Young Scientist Virtual Field Trip broadcasted from 3M's World of Innovation shows 3M Scientists doing experiments you can only see at 3M World Headquarters. From the batteries that power your smartphone to the non-reactive fluid that keeps supercomputers cool and operational, you will get an in-depth look at how 3M science improves your daily life!
2. Take a trip to Explore Nature:
3. Tour a Virtual Science Museum:
Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History: Go room by room through a virtual version of every exhibition in the museum.
4. Join a fun FREE Live Computer Science Class:
Find out how to code cool games and animations! At Create & Learn, we take a whole-brain approach to STEM learning. This means kids not only enjoy hands-on experience with the latest technologies such as AI and Data Science, but also more importantly, kids develop creativity and critical thinking skills. Our small class sizes, curriculum designed by experts from Google, Stanford, and MIT, and proven project- and inquiry-based instruction method ensure students have fun and learn!
Most students who join our computer science program begin with our online Scratch coding class. Scratch is one of the best ways to start coding because it’s a user-friendly block coding language - sort of like digital LEGOs - designed by MIT. It helps kids focus on learning the logic without worrying about typing — and this class is super fun because they’ll make a cool game. Learn more here, or here for advanced or older students.
