Beyond the Hour of Code

A select group of 6th grade students spent the day at Live Oak Elementary School teaching students to code.  Students used lessons that they taught to their peers during the Hour of Code week here at Deerpark Middle School.  Students will be returning to help teach other useful technology skills to their younger counterparts.

Virtual Field Trip to Yellowstone National Park

After the long trip all the way to their science classes, sixth graders were on their way to visit Yellowstone National Park via a Google Hangout on Air.  Park educators spent over an hour talking with students about the changing earth below, land formations located in the park, bison patties, and much more.  They had countless visual aides, and answered student questions with enthusiasm.  Students and teachers a like truly enjoyed the experience.
