Students, gather your best original writing of all types and give it to your English teacher or to Mrs. Harrell (J-311), and the literary magazine staff will consider it for publication in the special, expanded 10th anniversary issue of Creeks and Currents. You may submit work from this year or from past years. Deadline for all submissions is Jan 20, 2017, but the sooner the better. Teachers, you can submit any awesome work your students do in your classes as well.
December 5th – 11th is Computer Science Education Week! Students across campus are being asked to join in activities related to Hour of Code. Hour of Code is a campaign to get students from around the world participating in coding games or programming course activities for a minimum of one hour during Computer Science Week. Hour of Code and Code.org provide great resources for activities that can be done anywhere, any time, by anyone (even adults).
There will be specific activities introduced in the elementary communities with additional lessons extending throughout the next semester. K-2 students will participate through Wacky Wednesday and the Engineering Center time. Grades 3-5 will work through their TechKnow Google classroom (anytime, anywhere) along with target choice times with Mrs. Robinson.
Secondary students should check out the Participate P.K. — Hour of Code posters across campus or simply go to code.org and choose any activity or course to get started.
Words Of Wisdom
We all want to have nice possessions. That’s normal. But some of us can never seem to get enough. No matter how much we have, we want more. When we always want more, we are never satisfied with what we have and we stay unhappy and frustrated. In Mexico, they say, ‘the person who wants it all will lose it all. El que todo quiere todo lo pierde.’ In other words, when we always want more, more, more, we lose our ability to be happy with what we have. So, today, adopt an ‘attitude of gratitude’. Make a list of all the people and all the things for which you are grateful. Rather than focus on what you don’t have, focus on what’s good and wonderful in your world. With something to think about, make it a great day! The choice is yours!
