Hour of Code is Here!

This week your child will write a computer program. Hour of code is an international program to expose people from age 5 to 105 to computer science. There are thousands of well paid computer programming jobs that go unfilled each year because there are not enough people who can write computer code. At Salina, we are going to give your child a taste of what it is like to write a computer program. We have activities for all grades. If you would like to try some of them, they are available to anyone at Code.org . If you or someone you know wants to learn to program computers, please talk to Mrs. Alvarado. There are many free resources. You can even make these cool designs with Elsa.

Family Game Night

 

Family Game Night was a great time of learning and fun. Thank you Learning Gizmos, parents and staff for making this evening a big success. The learning games we experienced will help us become better thinkers.

NWEA Testing

All students will be testing in the next couple weeks to establish some individual learning goals. Please encourage your students to do their best, but not to be anxious about theses tests. The purpose of these tests is to help their teachers teach them even better and to move them as far as they can go this year. Students should work hard, but they should not worry. Your best is always good enough.

Flag Raising Ceremony

The new year has begun at Salina Elementary. Lt.Col. Gates once again generously visited us to help us raise our flag properly. Each student promised to do his or her best this year. The students were asked to think in silence of one goal they have for this year as the flag was raised. We are proud to live in a country where we can achieve our best if we work hard. Lt. Col Gates lead us in the Pledge of Allegiance. We listened to the Star Spangled Banner and sang America the Beautiful, which we sing each morning as a school when we recite the Pledge of Allegiance.

Mrs. Stanley, LT.Col. Gates and Mr. Mike raise the flag on the new school year.
