A Message from Principal Mary Sepler Nov. 29th, 2018

Dear Lowell Family,

Lowell’s Bedtime with Books is tonight from 5-7PM. Staff members will take turns reading a variety of holiday tales and our Scholastic Book Fair will be open in the library.  Please join us if you can.

Mrs. Christensen will be teaching two different computer coding clubs starting in January. Both clubs are free, but space is limited, so registration forms need to be turned in to the library by Dec. 7th.  Girls Who Code https://bit.ly/2SiJt9W  will meet Monday afternoons starting Jan. 7th. And Lowell Robotic and coding club https://bit.ly/2QpV6yp will meet Tuesday and Friday Mornings from 7:30 to 8:00 in the morning.  Registrations forms can be printed from the links provided above, or picked up in the library.

Students that sign up for Girls Who Code will receive a copy of the Girls Who Code book. Meetings will include fun, interactive activities and discuss concepts from the book like bravery and sisterhood. Club members will take on a creative challenge that relates to the book. They will learn to use the Blockly programing language to control Spheros, Ozobots, and Makey Makey devices.

The Lowell Robotics and coding club will have students working in groups to complete open ended challenges using the programming language Blockly to control Spheros, Ozobots, and Makey Makey devices. Contact Mrs. Christensen for any additional questions  Lisa.Christensen@bellinghamschools.org

Common Threads cooking classes will enjoy monthly cooking lessons through March 12th. Starting in December and into mid-January, students will prepare and taste fresh applesauce with apples harvested from local farms. We will explore a variety of spices including cinnamon, ginger, cardamom and nutmeg. Students will bring the recipe home: Look for it! If you’re interested in getting involved, please contact  sophie@commonthreadsfarm.org – For more information please visit www.commonthreadsfarm.org

Take care everyone,

Mary
