It’s time! It’s time!

Our annual reading challenge has arrived! Beginning tomorrow, January 8, Sippican School will be participating in a “Reading Without Walls” reading challenge. All students, families, and staff are invited to read:

  • Books about characters that don’t look or live like you
  • Books about topics that you don’t know much about
  • Books in a format that you don’t usually read for fun (graphic novels, a book in verse, a chapter book, poetry, etc.)

Every time you complete a challenge in one of these categories you can turn in a reading slip to the library! We’ll display them on the bulletin board just outside of the library. Which challenge will you accept first? I can’t wait to hear about it!

Hour of Code – 2017

It’s here, everybody! We’ve been preparing throughout November for the Hour of Code by using Blockly with our Dash robots. Blockly is a programming language that is super user-friendly and allows students to drag and drop blocks of code. This week, grades K-2 will be using The Foos on the iPads for HOC. Grades 3-4 can choose from the options in their drop-down menu. Grade 5-6 can pick from the challenges below. Have fun, and remember to keep trying!  We don’t quit! Persevere!
