Stanley Switlik Elementary recently completed their Read-a-thon fundraiser.  Students secured pledges for reading in the amount of $6,677.92.  These funds will be used to further the literacy program for students at Switlik.  The highest pledge winners in each grade received $25.00 in Book Bucks to spend with Scholastic Book Clubs. The student bringing in the highest amount of pledges was rewarded with the honor of “Junior Principal for the Day”.  Jack Dunn, a first grader, and Sara Bernal, a fifth grader, tied for this recognition.  Both students did a terrific job carrying out their responsibilities of providing leadership for the elementary school.  Congratulations, Sara and Jack!  A HUGE ‘Thank you” to students, parents and the community for supporting reading at Stanley Switlik Elementary.

Hour of Code

Bring computer science to your school. Start with an Hour of Code

Computers are everywhere, but fewer schools teach computer science than 10 years ago. Good news is, we’re on our way to change this. If you heard about the Hour of Code last year, you might know it made history. In the first Hour of Code, 15 million students tried computer science. Last year, that number increased to 60 million students! The Hour of Code is a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify code and show that anybody can learn the basics.

Hour of Code Resources
