Sister Schools Success
Thank you to the children and families who donated to this year's Community Action Project. To kick off this year's project, the Program Director of Sister Schools Terry McGill, spoke to the students about life in Uganda. His central message was, "It doesn't matter who you are, you can make a difference." Our students heard this message and took his words to heart.
Ms. Kathleen, Wendy Graff (Executive Director),
If Ms. Kathleen can learn how to code, so can you. Thank you to parent volunteers Chris Pirich and Clay McDaniel who introduced the 1st-5th grade classes to the world of computer science last week Students worked in pairs to learn a new language--the language of computer programming. Although the "Hour of Code" officially is over, Code.org offers many free, all-age tutorials to introduce adults and children to programming concepts.
The Global Reading Challenge is an annual 4th/5th grade battle of the books sponsored by the Seattle Public Library. This year marks the 20th anniversary of the GRC and 54 schools in Seattle will be participating. Students work in teams to read and discuss the 10 GRC titles. The teams will continue to read and work as a team to prepare for our in-school challenge on February 12th.
Looking for a good book for your child to read?
Happy Reading in the New Year!
