Students will Enjoy Technology Week at School December 4-8! 😃
"Hour of Code" is right around the corner! "Computer Science Education Week" (December 4-8) is almost here. All students in grades K-5 will be doing Coding Activities when they come to technology class with Ms. Taylor during Technology Week. Mrs. Campbell will be doing coding in STEM Lab, and Mrs. O’Connor will have some special activities in the Learning Commons! Look for your student's classroom to celebrate “Computer Science Education Week” by doing some coding activities in their classrooms as well.
You can even participate in Coding at Home! Head to hourofcode.com/us/learn for activities you and your student can enjoy (during Thanksgiving Break, too, right?)...including activities for Pre-Readers, grades 2-5, and up! Take on a "challenge" using the tools at Ms. Taylor's Technology Lab blog HERE.
Also, CONGRATS to Ms. Taylor, our Foundation-funded Technology Lab Instructor, who was selected again this year as a Code.Org committee member! "Thursday evening as I was traveling to Ohio, I finished my last review committee conference call (technology is amazing!) to finalize the activities that code.org will put on their website to use for the Hour of Code. There are great new offerings this year, activities for people new to coding, as well as new challenges for more experienced coders. It’s going to be a great week!" Thank you Ms. Taylor--Mountain View is proud of you!! 😃

Dear Kid Chess Parents,
The Mountain View Kid Chess trophy day will be held on Monday, December 11th! This is a special day during which we celebrate your young chess player's achievements in chess, and we hope that you are able to attend.
The ceremony will take place during the last 30 minutes of your child's normal chess class time. If your child is enrolled in both hours of chess, then he/she will have 2 separate trophy ceremonies.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
