Hour of Code

"Launched in 2013, Code.org® is a non-profit dedicated to expanding access to computer science, and increasing participation by women and underrepresented students of color. Our vision is that every student in every school should have the opportunity to learn computer science. We believe computer science should be part of core curriculum, alongside other courses such as biology, chemistry or algebra."

Author Visit

Author Visit - Dave Bastien!

Author Dave Bastien will be at Northwest on Wednesday, October 26th to share his book of Pick Me! Pick Me! The Story of the Magic Pumpkin  and perform his song with Kindergarten students.

Here is an overview of Dave’s book that will be shared with the students.

“Pick Me! Pick Me! The Story of the Magic Pumpkin is an enchanting tale that forever transforms the experience of pumpkin picking into a new family tradition  Using their Magic Pumpkin Charm, children find their own Magic Pumpkin and bring it to life to share the wonder of its single most important day - Halloween! And as the magical day comes to a close, the Magic Pumpkin shares a secret that leaves them eagerly awaiting the next Halloween. Pumpkin picking will never be the same!”   ~ Barnes&Noble.com

We are looking forward to Dave Bastien’s visit and are excited for our Kindergarten students to have this opportunity.
