First graders at Parr’s Ridge created constellations as part of their Out of This World Unit. They researched how stars form in PebbleGo and then read online about constellations. Students had a chance to make their own constellations and then project them on the wall using a flashlight.

Students in 5th grade at Runnymede Elementary are working on collaborating with each other to exchange ideas, develop new understandings, and demonstrate teamwork as they practice coding skills as part of our Computer Science unit in Media.  Students will apply coding skills to solve puzzles on the website code.org, code robotics or solve puzzles using Scratch Offline software.  The students are also preparing to participate in the Hour of Code in December.

Families at Robert Moton Elementary attended our first Title 1 Media and Tech Open House in the Media Center from 3:00-5:00 pm on Monday, November 19th! The Media Center welcomed families to access technology resources, learn more about databases available to students at home, and to check out books as a family. Family Book Borrowing is a new opportunity this year to allow readers more access to our wonderful media collection! We’re looking forward to hosting more Open House events in the future!
