It’s beginning to look at lot like Christmas, of course! This week we will be carrying on with concert practices, as well as writing a retelling of Jesus’ birth and continuing our Social Studies unit on Christmas celebrations around the world!
Hour of Code
Hour of Code is a global movement reaching tens of millions of students in 190+ countries. Every 21st-century student should have the opportunity to take part in creating technology that’s changing our world. The basics of computer science and coding help nurture creativity and problem-solving skills, and prepare students for any future career.
Over 300 partners have come together to support this grassroots campaign, including Microsoft, Google, Salesforce, The Walt Disney Company, Target, the Gates Foundation, Khan Academy and more.
This week, every learner at GCS, from our youngest to oldest, will participate in a minimum of one hour coding tutorials. We are thrilled to be part of this campaign for a second year, and look forward to watching students embrace challenges and feel empowered by their learning.
