Scratch Holiday Cards

scratchholiday

Every year around the holidays, Mr. Worth’s computer classes work on creating holiday cards using their word processing skills. This year, students have used their coding skills to create a digital card using scratch! Scratch is a free program that allows students to learn basic programming in a fun way! Coming off of the hour of code, and with holiday break fast approaching, students were asked to add a background, a sprite(character), have them move and have them say something. This was a tall task for one class of work time and all students were excited and focused. Their work can be viewed here:

Scholar’s Brunch

Last week, over one hundred students celebrated earning high honors on their first quarter report card. Students enjoyed a delicious brunch of egg sandwiches, fruit, yogurt, munchkins, cereal and more! This yummy treat was organized and served by our wonderful PTSG! Congratulations to our students and thank you to members of the PTSG!
