Hour of Code
We are excited to announce that FXW will be participating in Code.org’s upcoming Hour of Code. Hour of Code runs during Computer Science Education Week from December 8-14. The Hour of Code program encourages students at all grade levels around the world to try computer science for one hour. At FXW we will have an hour of code during the week for all of our Kindergarten through 8th grade students. Look for information soon on our FXW Academic Technology blog, your students’ Announcements through Canvas, and here at In The Loop. And Check it out at: http://youtu.be/FC5FbmsH4fw We’ll all be trying out coding in December!
Canvas Update for 4th-8th Grade Students
As we move from the first assessment period to the second, you will notice that your Canvas account will show published courses for Winter 2015. Teachers will be transitioning their courses during this time. If they are not already, all courses will be published soon and your Canvas account should look just like it did for the first assessment period. Your student’s account will reflect the change to the second assessment period. You will still be able to see first assessment period courses and grades listed as “Past Enrollments”.
