Here is a list of classes and where they will meet:



  • Mechina--Downstairs Computer Lab

These classes will be coding with CodeSpark's codable game, "The Foos!"

Use the Force, First Grade!

We're really excited to see our First Grade students and teachers "use the Force" to explore Java Script next week (December 7-11)! Many of our students already love Star Wars books and materials. During hour of code students and teachers will meet with me at our regular Media time in either the Upstairs or Downstairs Computer Labs to explore coding Java Script through a Star Wars program. Here is the list of classes, and where we'll be meeting:



  • Kramer--Upstairs Computer Lab
  • Israel--Downstairs Computer Lab
  • Jay--Upstairs Computer Lab



I adore Star Wars, and this should be a really exciting lesson! Can't wait to share it with you all!
