Coding Club Receives Four Sphero 2.0 Robots

ES Coding Club’s first session (4th, 5th, and 6th grade) ended with a small graduation ceremony and fond farewells. The 3rd grade group is off to a wonderful and productive start, with a special surprise thrown in the mix! A special parent donated FOUR Sphero 2.0 robots for the students to experiment with. Now, students can physically apply what they’ve been learning digitally! Thank you for supporting this club. We look forward to its continued success and to student excitement and growth!

Students Raise Money for Cancer

Leukemia and Lymphoma Society Fundraiser

Each year in February our elementary school raises money to support the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.  The program is called Pennies for Patients.  Students collect change (and dollars, checks, or online donations) and the money is donated to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.  The funds are used to support patients by providing community services, support research, raise public awareness and provide professional education with regard to blood cancers.
This year our school has donated close to 4,000 dollars to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society!  One class, Ms. Lavenduski’s sixth grade class, raised over 2,000 of the funds.  Please join me in congratulating Ms. Lavenduski’s class and all the students in the elementary school for a job well done!
