Shop til You Drop at the Book Fair to Benefit 5th Grade

It's time to make your list and check it twice...then come to the book fair next week, December 5th-9th, and shop for everyone who is nice! All proceeds will help make sure that all 5th graders get to go to Rock Eagle in March. Both shoppers and volunteers are needed and greatly appreciated.

A Note from the Book Fair Chair....

I'm gathering a team of enthusiastic, creative, and talented volunteers to help out at our upcoming Scholastic Book Fair, and I would like to invite you to help out. Please take a moment to view our sign-up sheet to see what roles interest you at:

Evansdale to Participate in "The Hour of Code"

The Hour of Code is a global movement reaching over 100 million students in over 180 countries. Anyone, anywhere can organize an Hour of Code event.

Hour of Code is a one-hour introduction to computer science. Students and teachers can choose from a variety of activities for kindergarten and up. Activities work on any modern browser, tablet, smartphone, or even with no computer at all. No experience is needed by students or teachers and activities are available in over 45 languages!

Hour of Code lesson plans and activities can be used to inspire students in many different classes—math, physics, history, English, and more. After doing an hour, many students want to continue!

Computer science is foundational. Every 21st century student should have the opportunity to learn how to create technology. Computer science is changing every industry on the planet and computing is the #1 source of wages in the U.S. There are more than 500,000 computing jobs open nationwide.

By introducing girls and boys to fundamental computing concepts on a level playing field, starting with the earliest learners, we can inspire today’s generation of students to build technology.
