UA Team: STEM, Music, Library, and Intramurals

In STEM class students have learned a variety of skills in the program Scratch by MIT.  This program allows them to be creative and learn the basics of block coding that would be used in video game development and computer animations.   Along with learning coding skills, we have learned many computer skills through-out the year that can be applied in all classes.   In Trimester Two we have made mazes, pong games, platformer games, digital art pieces and animations based on their interests. They have learned how to edit images and create projects that allow them to express themselves in many ways.  This week in STEM we recreated scenes from a favorite tv show, movie, video game or content creator.  If you haven’t had the chance to check out your student’s projects in scratch, I encourage you to do so!  They put a lot of time and effort into their projects and I have been blown away by some of the games that have been made this year in my classes.

Mrs. Priest is going to lead a group of volunteer teachers to learn the ukulele and how to perform together. We will meet over the next several Tuesdays after school, video a performance, and then use our expertise to help a group of students learn and perform. It may be this year’s version of parent band—maximum fun, and working toward quality.

In the library, students have been enjoying the new smart tv in the library! From looking up book genres to drawing pictures to listening to interviews with J.K. Rowling, it’s a hit...and a help!

Mr. Maxim is doing a great job with our intramurals. Kids are having a great time playing basketball with Mr. Cowan and Mr. Griffin, and doing some yoga with Mrs. Wibby.
