Every Hero Needs a Squad

Our Pennies for Patients 2019 Campaign is officially off to a great start. Our theme this year is: Every Hero Needs a Squad. Each year, DVA raises money, through our Pennies for Patients program, for the Leukemia Lymphoma Society. In the past several years, DVA has contributed over $100,000 to LLS in the fight against blood cancers. This year, our school-wide goal is $12,000. Each classroom has set a goal of $300.

We have built in some incentives for our students:
$5000: Mrs. Weigel will spend the day “wheeling” around the school
$10,000: The students will vote on a color to dye Mrs. Weigel’s hair
$12,000: All school assembly where the teachers will silly string Mrs. Weigel. A check, from DVA, will be presented to LLS.
The winning class: Mrs. Weigel will teach the class. The teacher will be treated to a few hours off campus; including coffee, muffins and a massage!

Hour of Code

There’s something for everyone during Hour of Code! Kids of all ages and skill levels will find something that inspires them to join the millions of other students around the world who are coding this week. Kinder will learn basic drag and drop commands with block coding. First and Second grade will learn to sequence through block coding with Tynker. Third and Fourth grade will learn about the fundamentals of code through block coding with Tynker. Finally, the Fifth grade will write code commands, loops, and learn how to debug with the Swift code language used by iOS devices.

Our activities will ensure that our students have an organized, engaging, and exciting Hour of Code! Ask your child what s/he is learning. It will be very cool!
