December 15th

Our whole school participation in The Hour of Code on Friday the 13th was AMAZING!!!  The feeling on campus was reminiscent of last year's Innovation Day. Below are several snapshots of the event. Students were excited, engaged, and learned A LOT!! The video below shows two campus monitors and a student working through the "unplugged" Kodable activity. Priceless!!

Crystal Middle Rocked BYOD!!

Students worked in pairs. Teachers learned to code alongside the students. Every student that completed a tutorial received an Hour of Code completion certificate.

Ipads, Tablets, PC's, they all worked!!

Students working on "unplugged" versions side by side with "plugged" in versions. 

This Wednesday at 7:00 PM is going to be an evening for our students and staff to shine and show their talents at our Crystal Middle Talent Show. I am so happy to see so many staff members that have signed up to perform. I can't wait to hear Maurice sing, Rachel and Leslie perform a comedy act, and Tammy play the piano. This will be a great way to wrap up our 2013 year.

Remember that this Friday morning Leslie and I will be cooking each of you breakfast. We will be serving waffles hot off the iron, sausage hot off the griddle, fruit, juice, and Peet's coffee. Come join us in the library at 8:30 AM on Friday the 20th. You can then finish your grades with a full stomach and a happy heart.

Word of the Week: Establish  is to find out facts that will prove that something is true.
