National Hour of Code

Next week, December 5-12 is National Hour of Code. "The Hour of Code started as a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify "code", to show that anybody can learn the basics, and to broaden participation in the field of computer science. It has since become a worldwide effort to celebrate computer science, starting with 1-hour coding activities but expanding to all sorts of community efforts." Students in grades 2 and 3 started this week by using Osmo Coding on the iPads. Mrs. Wurm looks forward to seeing all students next week in the computer lab for more coding lessons!


Welcome to the season of Advent! While the holidays can be an extra busy time, let’s not forget to rejoice in the real meaning of the season by spending time with loved ones, spending more time in prayer, and reflecting on our spiritual life. At school, grades 1-8 come together each morning to participate in an Advent service that includes lighting the candles around the Advent wreath, scripture reading & reflection, and special prayer & song. Let’s celebrate the joy that comes with this special season!
