4th Grade: Camp Code-Robot Edition

Click heading to open registration link March 6, 2017 at 3:45. Registration will be closed until that date and time.
We will be utilizing the curriculum created by Wonder Workshop (Dash and Dot). Since the students will have many different ability levels, the camp will be somewhat self-paced with challenges each week to solve.

Parent Survey: Deadline Friday, March 3

We are partnering with BrightBytes, an educational research and analytics company, in order to learn more about our students’ school and home technology use for learning.

We are reaching out to ask you to take part in our University Park Elementary/HPISD) questionnaire. Your participation helps us form a complete picture of technology use for learning. Please know that all of your responses will remain anonymous to protect your privacy and they will help your child's school choose the right technology for their classrooms. It will take approximately 5-10 minutes to complete.

The last day to complete this questionnaire is Friday March 3, 2017.

International Day is Friday, March 24th.

We will have international performances and dances by our students. Parents and families will dress up in traditional clothing to present information and food from their countries. We will have craft tables and food trucks from countries around the world.

We need family and friends to set up information about your country or a country of your lineage. You can display anything you want that is relevant to the culture you are representing. You can pass out food samples from your country or host a simple craft to demonstrate or teach at your table.
