Peruvian Park students learned the basics of coding in a weeklong project, Hour of Code. Over 81 million students worldwide participated in the activity designed to help nurture an interest in computer science and future careers.

We enjoyed an “ Hour of Code” last week along with over 54 million students worldwide. Our students tried their hand at being computer scientists and problem solving. We want to thank Ms. Martz, Mrs. Pam Roberts and Mrs. Bennett for helping teachers and student all week long.
We have a very busy week planned at the school. Tuesday, December 16, brings the return of the Peruvian Park Choir under the direction of Alyssa Powers. The choir will perform for the school at 2:00 p.m., then parents, families and friends are invited to the 6:30 p.m. concert.
We will begin our sing along performance for parents at 2:00 p.m. on Thursday, December 18 with our 5th grade students. The other classes will perform at approximately five minute intervals in the following order: K, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th. Since timing is an estimate only, feel free to join us for as much or as little of the activity as you wish.
Winter is here and there will be days we may need to stay inside. In the first week of January, the PTA will help collect games to distribute to each classroom for inside recess. If you have a board game that is in good condition that you no longer use or want to donate a new board game, please send them to the school January 5-9. The PTA will separate them into appropriate age levels and distribute to each grade.
We have exceeded our goal for KSL Quarters for Christmas with over $1300 already donated! The Student Leadership Team and PTA will continue to visit classrooms this week to collect spare change. Thank you for helping your children participate in this worthy charity event.
