Thank You Mrs. Theriault and Mrs. Francis!
For years they have been the smiling faces that have greeted you over and over again in the front office or extended day. Mrs. Dorene Francis and Mrs. Kathi Theriault will be retiring from JRB at the end of the month. These two ladies have been the rocks that the two entities have been built on. Not only do they help run so many things here, but they are also key cogs in your children's lives as well. We will try to carry on without these two lovely ladies, but there will certainly be a large void left in our day to day routine. Thank you both for all of the tremendous work you have done and please don't hesitate to visit us whenever you would like!
On another note, we obviously wish everyone a safe and joyous holiday season. Rest, relax, and enjoy time with those that mean so much to you.
Tech Ed News
During our last rotation in technology, we were busy incorporating many different programming activities to celebrate Computer Science Week. In the 4th and 5th grades, we were working on programming with Lego robotics. The 3rd grade explored (and are continuing to explore) coding with Scratch. While 2nd grade has been working on web research, we were able to do some Hour of Code activities. Buzzing could be heard with the 1st graders as they programmed their Bee Bots to navigate through their maze challenges. Finally, kindergarten got a chance to program with their Kodables and manage some of their own mazes.
