Hour of Code is HERE!
Hour of Code is here! From December 5-11, tens of millions of students of all ages in over 180 countries will try one hour of coding. The goal is to encourage students to try coding, and to help young people have a fun experience with computer science while doing so! Code.org is a great place to try this out. Anyone at any age can try it. Just go to code.org, click on Hour of Code, and create an account. OSD students should use their student gmail to do this, and can use the "sign up with Google" option. Try any of the tutorials that appeal to you, but refer to the age recommendations as a guideline. If you have created an account and are logged in, your progress in Hour of Code challenges will be saved. Mrs. Quimby spends a week teaching and coaching students through code.org challenges and tutorials each quarter of 6th Tech. Interested students at any grade level are encouraged to ask Mrs. Q for help getting started with the coding challenges anytime this week during lunch.
RMS Students Dancing at Activity Night
This morning all of the 6th grade students came back after a 5 day weekend with "You Matter" notes on their locker. These notes were written by 8th grade students to give the 6th grade students encouragement, praise, hints on how to be successful, kind words, etc. This process was led by our amazing counselor, Mrs. Weber. Thank you to her and all of the 8th grade students that participated. Please take a moment to ask your 6th grade student what was said and how it made them feel. Here are a couple images of a group of lockers and one example of a "You Matter" note.
