My Students

Our school is a bustling place filled with enthusiastic, intelligent elementary students eager to learn. When the students enter my classroom each week I always hear questions about what they'll be learning that day, exclamations about how much they loved the books they read the prior week and hopeful voices volunteering to help organize the books on our bookshelves. They love trying new things and our teachers love seeking new ways to make learning exciting!

When you walk into our school you find yourself immersed in an overwhelmingly positive atmosphere which evokes feelings of home.

Friendliness and warmth fill our halls and our young students cannot wait to embark on new learning adventures each day!

My Project

Our students love the magic of Harry Potter books and they also love learning about technology. This project is the perfect blend of the two!

The Build a Wand Kano Harry Potter Coding Kits will teach our students about the basics of coding through a fun, hands-on and best of all-magical- activity!

The kits include more than 70 step-by-step creative challenges which will allow our students to collaborate in teams to make feathers fly, pumpkins grow, create fire and exercise their imaginations. You don't need to be a witch or wizard at Hogwarts to discover the magic of learning and coding!
