Requested by Molly Culver, Teaching Principal Landaff Blue School;
This week grades K-3 had Computer Science and started building their video games. Wednesday was Groundhog Day, the students made their predictions, learned about what happens, and did some fun activities that were associated with Groundhog Day. The Groundhog did see its shadow, so 6 more weeks of Winter. Friday will be 100s day! The students are very excited to celebrate 100s day.
