We are hard at work in the Computer Lab for the next few weeks with a typing contest and making a cartoon video of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. The kids are loving not just learning their home row keys, but also the challenge of beating me at the game as well. So practice up on your Home Row Typing Ninga Game. Make sure you are Charlie and the Chocolate Factory so you help us with our video each week! So much fun. If you have a Kindergarten students they are learning that each finger has a special key on the keyboard. They are loving it!!
Last week was a National Hour of Code. All grades participated. They are loved it!! You can go to code.org to learn more. They did their 1 Hour of Code during computer lab. Have your child tell you what they have learned. You might be surprised! I could not be more proud. We will continue coding throughout the year!
Help us Celebrate! We LOVE our Custodians!

Kindergarten learned how to copy and paste into a separate location. So proud of our WE students!
