Computer Science Education Week starts Monday!

posted Dec 2, 2017, 5:36 PM by Tori Mazur

Students can click on our Hour of Code website to find this year's theme of "Coding the Machines" and a variety of robot-themed coding options. Hour of Code (tm) is a worldwide event during Computer Science Education Week in which students participate in computer science activities.  Ephesus students will take their coding skills to the next level with physical computing. Every classroom will have hands-on experiences as they visit the multi-purpose room for an hour of challenges with robots that encourage creativity and collaboration.  

Grades two through five also have a link in an Hour of Code folder in Seesaw.  We encourage families to explore these resources together and talk through the thinking involved in the challenges with their children.  These resources are web-based and therefore available on any internet-connected device.  Some will load faster than others.  Some are also available as mobile apps.  Please check your devices "store" for availability.  Feel free to create an account for your child at home so they can continue their computational thinking journey beyond an hour.

Student Password Reset

posted Aug 10, 2017, 8:40 AM by Tori Mazur

Be aware that student passwords are in the process of being reset for the 2017-18 school year.  If your child(ren) has been logging in this summer, the account will not likely display an "incorrect password" message.  This is not an error.  Students will receive new passwords during our first Digital Life Lesson for the year when we review responsible use of our devices.  Encourage them to be patient and encourage conversation about why it's a good safety practice to change passwords.  Young roadrunners should also be sharing passwords with parents and guardians throughout the year so you can review digital work together. 

Keep Reading and Learning This Summer!
