Decemeber 8 through December 12 Week-At-A-Glance

Pequea Families,

Next week the students have the opportunity to purchase items at the PTO Holiday Shoppe. Envelopes went home this week with a reminder attached including your student’s class shopping date and time. The shopping schedule for next week is located at the bottom of this post. Also, please return the Breakfast Buddies form to your student’s teacher as soon as possible.

We live in a world surrounded by technology. We know that whatever field our students choose to go into as adults, their ability to succeed will increasingly hinge on understanding how technology works. However, only a tiny fraction of us are learning computer science, and less students are studying it than a decade ago.

Next week is Computer Science Education Week (Dec. 8-14) and the hour of code. Last year, 15 million students tried computer science in one week. This year, you can join students worldwide to reach 100 million students. Click here to learn more! The “Code Stars” video also explains the power of coding.  Listed below are coding sites for your programmer to explore.
