TECHNOLOGY CLASSES

Last week, every technology class in Robert Gordon School participated in the international Hour of Code.  This is a yearly event, sponsored by code.org, where millions of students from around the world learn about and implement computer coding techniques.  Our students had a blast.

  Mr. Attlesey reports that this week, the students began the new code curriculum. He said that it was exciting to see the students having so much fun learning about coding.  Through computer coding, this curriculum will enhance a student’s abilities to recognize patterns, think ahead, plan alternatives, implement strategies and a host of other abilities.  
  While having fun with computers, students will also be implementing and enhancing math practices such as:  Making sense of problems and persevering in solving them, reasoning abstractly and quantitatively, using appropriate tools strategically, attending to precision, looking for and making use of structure, looking for and expressing regularity in repeated reasoning.

The students can do this at home too.  Just go to code.org and click the start button for Hour of Code.

We are pleased to announce that
Robert Gordon School
is officially a
Kindness Certified School
 
Students and staff from Robert Gordon will be participating in the Great Kindness Challenge during the month of February. Each student and staff member will decorate a hand print, showing how he/she can show kindness. These handprints will be added to the Great Kindness Challenge, whose goal is to beat the Guinness Book of World Records for the “Most Kind-Hearted Handprints.” Robert Gordon students and staff will also be involved in many other activities focused around kindness this month. We are so proud of our students for displaying their kind-hearted spirits towards their peers, teachers, and others in the community. 

The Teddy Bear is the official mascot of Robert Gordon School.  In 1909 when Robert Gordon School was built, Theodore Roosevelt was president of the United States of America.  His nickname was Teddy.  Legend has it that he once saved a bear cub.  A stuffed, toy bear was named after him.
