I am very excited about the wonderful news I have to share with you this month! First of all, Morgan, in Mrs. Wigand's 1st grade class, completed Course 1 in coding from Code.org. This is a 20 hour course that our PreK- 2nd graders have been working on in the computer lab as well as at home. Our 3rd-5th graders have been working on Course 2 from Code.org which is a more advanced 20 hour coding course.
Our wonderful PTF has approved supplemental funding to procure new movement based stools for the technology lab. The Hokki stools come in a variety of fun colors, and I have chosen light blue and lime green to compliment the lab's environment (I know many of you are shocked that I did not choose the hot pink option!). I look forward to the arrival of these wonderful stools! The stools currently in the lab will be put to good use in the Art room!
The PTF has also purchased 4 Ozobot robots to begin our robotics program. I will have a total of 8 Ozobots and cannot wait to begin robotics this year with the fifth grade!
Thank You so much PTF! We love you!
