What a Day We Had - Grand Parent's & Special Person's Day

:  Just a reminder that we are Healthy Heights.  Here are some ways we can have Healthy celebrations for birthdays.  Please always arrange with your teacher before bringing anything in for birthdays.

New Keyboarding Program & Challenge

Dear Parents and Students:
We are writing to tell you the exciting news about the 2014 QWERTY Kids Keyboarding Challenge for Grades 3-6. The Departments of Elementary Education and Education Technology have partnered with Harbor Council PTA to bring you this exciting new challenge for our students.  We hope this will help to promote our new Keyboarding program as well as motivate students to practice their keyboarding skills.
We launched the NMUSD Typing Club program for Grades K-6.  If you haven’t done so already, we encourage all of you to get started with keyboarding.  All the classes are set up and student accounts available.

Student PASSWORDS: 6 digit birth date


Starting in early March, we will have our first Keyboard Challenge so there is plenty of time to get involved and practice.

Why keyboarding, you ask? As you know, Common Core and Smarter Balanced Assessments (SBAs) are fast approaching.  Our students need to be prepared with both keyboarding and technology skills not only for their futures in High School and College, but also for their current school work.  To find out more about Common Core and SBAs or see a sample question, please visit http://www.smarterbalanced.org/parents-students/  Or  http://sampleitems.smarterbalanced.org/itempreview/sbac/ELA.htm


There will be more information to follow regarding the specifics of the Keyboarding Challenge.  In the meantime, start typing!
