Please bring a jar to school by Monday. Jars should be clear and can be plastic or clear. They need to be at least 12 cm tall and need to have a wide mouth. Mason jars would be best. Lids are not necessary.
Thanks for coming out to see the amazing coding games students created! They have worked diligently to learn this new and exciting skill!


Parents: Every student will require a mouse on April  27th, to ensure their games can be played without frustration. For those students who currently have no mouse  at school, please try to make a plan that they can bring one from home for those two dates.
