Kennedy School Celebrates the Hour of Code 2017!

     On Tuesday, Dec. 5, 2017, Kennedy School kicked off the Hour of Code with an assembly by a group of 4th graders called the Cougar Coders.  They did a terrific job presenting a Google Slide deck that they created.  You can view the presentation below.  If you would like to see the speaker notes, click the settings wheel:

Hour of Code Presentation

Congratulations to 2B!

    2B entered the October Morris County Sumdog contest, and they finished in 3rd place!  That is terrific!  Also, Anthony Viscardi was on the individual student leaderboards in 3rd place with a score of 910 correctly answered questions out of 1,000 possible.  Wow!  Way to go!

Digital Citizenship

This comic was created by Matthew Neil to illustrate an important rule (click on the comic to enlarge it):

A Terrific Resource for Parents and Teachers

    Common Sense Media is a wonderful tool for parents and teachers to guide students in the safe and effective use of technology. This organization reviews websites, apps, movies, and books for children of all ages.  As the organization states, "We rate, educate, and advocate for kids, families, and schools."  

Attention Parents: Special Request

    As our technology becomes increasingly mobile with iPads and Chromebooks here at Kennedy, we are requesting that parents send a set of headphones or earbuds (corded - no Bluetooth, please) in a zip-lock bag LABELED with your child's name to remain in your child's classroom for their exclusive use. Students are welcome to transport their headphones back and forth to the lab rather than use the lab headphones if they prefer. This includes all grades K-4. Thank you.

Keyboarding Goals for 
Kennedy Students:

1st Grade goal:    5 wpm
2nd Grade goal: 10 wpm
3rd Grade goal:  15 wpm
4th Grade goal:  20 wpm

This great program is paid for by Roxbury Schools for both school and home use. Please take advantage of this valuable resource!

Our 3rd and 4th graders are excited to be utilizing their own Google accounts managed by Roxbury Schools. Students can work collaboratively using Google Docs. With our carts of Chromebooks, students are able to work on projects in their classrooms as well as in the computer lab.
