Calling all Coders
RNESU is welcoming back Young Hacks Academy, a Tech Leadership and Coding camp for ages 9-14. The goal of Young Hacks Academy isn’t simply to provide a fun week of summer camp, but also to give students meaningful skills and knowledge that they can take with them when the week ends. We aim to equip kids with a foundation in programming, and to instill a passion for creative problem solving and a commitment to service.
This summer we are offering two sessions at Lothrop Elementary School in Pittsford, VT:
Coding with SCRATCH
for ages 9 - 12
Introduction to Programming with Java
for ages 12 - 14

Open to All - $250

May 2016 PRINCIPAL’S REPORT:
The end of the school year is in sight, and there are many exciting learning opportunities and activities happening before our last day on Friday, June 10. This time of year requires a delicate balancing act between completing the year and planning for next year. As a principal friend reminded me on Saturday, “It’s May!”
In November, the voters approved a facility project to convert Neshobe’s main and brick buildings to a pellet boiler system and to install digital controls. This will improve ventilation and insulation. This project has been awarded to Naylor and Breen. We are very excited for this project to begin and to have effective and efficient ventilation and heating systems in both buildings in the coming school year. Thank you to our voters for approving this project!
Neshobe School will again be hosting the Naturalization Ceremony on Wednesday, May 11. Our fifth and sixth graders have the opportunity to see first-hand what they have been learning about in their classrooms. They will be singing “One Nation” and “American Every Day.” The fifth graders will be presenting the Preamble to the Constitution. This is a very moving ceremony and a strong reminder of how fortunate we are to live in the United States of America.
On Monday, June 6, Neshobe School will host a “CELEBRATION OF STUDENT LEARNING and GRADUATION CHALLENGE” from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. Student work throughout the year will be on display in their classrooms, K-5. The Graduation Challenge projects will be on displayed in the Library.
On Saturday, May 28, Neshobe’s Girls on the Run will participate at the state level 5K race held at the Rutland Fairgrounds. It is a powerful experience to be there with girls from around the state, especially the Neshobe girls!
