We had a great Red and White Ribbon week and hopefully the message of being Drug Free and Media Smart had an impact that will outlast the activities and spirit days from last week. We had a presentation from NetSmartz and I encourage you to visit www.netsmartz.org to learn more about how to keep children safe while using online resources or technology. 

6th-12th Online Coding Classes

Students ages 12–18 learn how to build web pages and write software. Students START at level 1 – JavaScript Game Design and increase in knowledge and experience with each course. Students learn at their own pace and have the option for one-on-one help. When a student completes the pathway program they will be prepared for AP and Concurrent Enrollment Computer Science courses and a great career.

Students 9th grade and above can advance by testing out of classes

Sarah Harward came to talk to our class about modern Egypt, because we have been learning about Ancient Egypt.  It was interesting to learn that Egypt seems to have regressed.  Many students are looking into the causes of that on their own.  This is a picture of students trying on the clothes many Muslims wear every day.
