Dear Parents,

We live in a world surrounded by technology. We know that whatever field our students choose to pursue, their ability to succeed will increasingly hinge on understanding how technology works. However, only a tiny fraction of us are learning computer science, and fewer students are studying it than a decade ago.

That’s why the Uniondale School District is joining in on the largest learning event in history,The Hour of Code, during Computer Science Education Week (Dec. 8-14). Last year, 15 million students tried computer science in one week. This year, we're joining students worldwide to reach 100 million students!

Uniondale is introducing and teaching these foundational 21st century skills.  We are.planning an exciting week of code activities to promote the national program during the week of December 8.  A team of experts from Codescholarly will be coming to the elementary and middle schools to provide students with exposure to coding. Programming activities will take place in all high school math classes.  

See http://hourofcode.com/us for more information.

D.E.A.R.

A morning initiative called D.E.A.R. TIME will start your child's day.  During morning line up students will have the opportunity to read something of their own choice for fun.  Taking time to read will expose students to the written word and develop their reading and writing skills.  Parents can help empower their children by providing them with a book, newspaper, magazine etc. to get their morning started off right! 
                                              READERS ARE LEADERS!

We all shop for groceries, sometimes two or three times a week. Now turn those shopping trips into easy cash for your school.  Just look for the Box Tops logo on hundreds of products like Cheerios®, Hamburger Helper®and Kleenex®in almost every aisle of the store. All you need to do is clip and send them in. Each one is worth 10¢ for our school!  Use the following collection sheets to keep track of your box tops. For more information go to http://www.boxtops4education.com/
