Currently at Saint Clement


Students in kindergarten, first and second grade started to learn about coding this month using the Daisy Dino app and Scratch Jr. Wow, did they take off with their ideas! A great way to connect home to school is to allow your child to retell a story they have read using Scratch Jr. I am looking forward to seeing more creative coding!

Additionally, I sent home an email outlining how to get your child going on Type to Learn at home! The students really enjoyed logging on and learning about typing, so we will be doing one more session in the media center to make sure they are proficient in navigating the program, and I hope this translates to smooth use of the program at home!

In the upper-elementary grades and middle school, students tackled an engineering design challenge that asked them to design a water tower (that actually can hold water) using limited resources. It was amazing to see all the effort and ideas students produced, even when the towers were not successful in holding water at the end of the lesson!

Additionally, I always appreciate the middle school students' ability to find loopholes in the challenge rules so that they can be successful in a different way; many future attorneys and lawmakers in this group!

No School tomorrow, February 16th or Monday, February 19th!
