Week of January 30 - February 3

What's Coming Up This Week? January 30-February 3 This week we had fun with Sammi Circuit as he completed his second circuit with our students.  Our students are learning to think positively about themselves and encourage their peers.  You may hear them say things like, "You Got This!" or "You are Awesome".  The students love this time with Sammi and have fun being active and positive with each other.  Sammi will be back this Tuesday evening for Sammi Circuit Family Night at 6:00 PM.  We hope to see you there! Students also had fun using our new Spheros this week which allow students the opportunity to collaborate, problem solve and dive into coding.  Check out our Twitter page for some pictures from our coding experiences.
