Hour of Code
Technology surrounds the world we live in today. What will tomorrow’s technology include? One thing we know for sure is that whatever field our students choose to go into as adults, their ability to succeed will increasingly depend on understanding how technology works. Only a tiny fraction of students are learning the basics of computer coding. Fewer than half of all schools teach computer science.
That is why our school has joined in on the largest learning event in history: The Hour of Code, during the month of December more than 100 million students worldwide will participate in programming activities to help students gain a better understanding of computer science.
Most of the Hour of Code events are scheduled during Computer Science Education Week, December 5-11th. Our school will be in the middle of MAP test during this time. Therefore, our schedule will look a little different. Every grade will have the opportunity during the first and last week of December before the holiday break to spend as much time as they can exploring the Hour of Code coding activities. These activities will be available throughout the year for students to go back to and explore. Click here to begin your coding adventure!

5th Grade Researchers
The 5th graders spent some time this week exploring Google Research as part of their president research project. In small groups, they created anchor charts teaching others how to use Google Research. Then, they had the chance to insert pictures into their president report! Thinking, learning and collaborating is happening @OurIdealLibrary!
