Mr. Moff’s 5th Grade Class Thanks Bus Drivers

Students at Norge celebrated their bus drivers by writing letters and showering them with gifts. The students wanted to make sure that the bus drivers at Norge know how awesome they are and how much they are appreciated by the Roadrunner staff, students, and families!

Norge Siblings Play Computer Games Together as a TRACKS Reward

First grader George earned 15 minutes of extra computer lab time as a TRACKS reward.  Students who choose this reward are allowed to pick one friend to come to the computer lab to play with them.  Rather than choosing a friend from class, George opted to see if his older brother Lloyd in fifth grade was available to come play with him.  He was, and they had a great time playing computer games side by side for 15 minutes before returning to their regular school day.  Congratulations George!

hour of code

Hour of Code is a Success!

All Norge K-5 students participated in the Hour of Code during Computer Lab Centers during the first week of December.  During the Hour of Code, elementary students learn how to code using a simplified coding language called “blockly”.  Students ‘snap’ these blocks together to create code that the computer can read.  All students learn to sequence, loop, and debug while advanced students also learn about functions, if/then statements, events, and so much more!

Norge students practice coding all year, however during the Hour of Code week they play interest-based coding games to enhance their practice and hone their skills.

These are the games chosen for this year’s Norge Hour of Code:

Hour of Code: Beginner

Hour of Code: Intermediate

Hour of Code: Advanced
