Code.org put together this five minute video to help explain what computer programmers do and what coding is. The more I learn about coding, the more I appreciate how it teaches perseverance and problem solving. If my students never become a programmer, they can all use those skills!
Today, our president spoke about the importance of learning computer science at a young age. I also recognize the benefits which is why my students use kid-friendly programming apps like Bee-bot and Daisy the Dinosaur. This week my robot will make an appearance and the students will learn to be navigators and drivers. Soon our 3rd grade buddies will be working with us on the code.org website. I’ll be sending out more info so your child can log in at home and use code.org. If you would like to gain some computer science skills, come join us in the classroom. It’s always an adventure in TK!
We have rescheduled our trip to see Shrek, Jr. for Wednesday Feb 10th. Students do NOT need a new permission form. Chaperones DO need to confirm with Mrs. Noya and Mrs. Petuya. We understand if you are not able to attend.

We will dismiss students as soon as we return. Chaperones need to be at school by 9:00 AM. Do NOT bring backpacks or snack bags. Check the weather report and dress appropriately!
Good Afternoon Carroll Comets! My name is Sahra and I am one our your Pennies for Patients representatives. We have had a GREAT first week. In our first week, which was only 4 days long, we have raised $2,464.70. Give yourselves a HUGE round of applause.
Next week we will be selling wristbands on Monday for $2 on the outdoor stage. This will be your last chance to buy one until C-Track returns on February 1. The winning class will be announced at the end of the 4 week campaign.
Also, next week we will begin selling $5 raffle tickets for the Principal for a day. You can buy as many raffle tickets as you want. Your class representatives will give you more information and a flyer on Monday when they come to collect your donations. Remember ALL money raised goes to our school goal.
Lastly, our current classroom leaders are Ms. Burnat’s class with $154.64 and Mr. Stults’ class with $166.83.
Good luck collecting money this weekend and we will see you on Monday!
Although the weather didn’t cooperate with our plans for the walking trip to Franklin HS, we had a fun day with a full room of friendly faces. Thank you to the brave parents who stayed with us for the morning. I will soon post photos of the day’s learning efforts.
