Dot Day 2017

We had so much fun celebrating International Dot Day this year! Students got to participate in several enriching activities around the school. In the library, students (depending on their grade) got to:

-Use the Ozobots to use different colored "dots" to code a path for it to follow
-Use the Garage Band app to remix the Dot Day song by Emily Arrow
-Create a dot and watch it come to life with the Quiver app
-Make a video using a homemade portable green screen saying how they would make their mark on the world.

We also wore our most creative "dot" outfits on Friday. Here are the winners from each grade level! They each won a signed copy of a graphic novel by Nathan Hale.

Bluebonnet Kickoff

I started this post before we had the Bluebonnet Kickoff, which was 2 weeks ago, and I'm just now getting the chance to finish it. I think that's a good indication of how busy we've been!

This year for our Bluebonnet Kickoff, students learned about the program, our district's Battle of the Bluebonnets, and how they can earn prizes for participating. Students got to learn about books they were interested in by scanning QR codes to watch that book's trailer.
