In trying to turn a tragic event into a celebration of her son’s life, Malcom’s very own teacher Sharon Yanaura started collecting pajamas for children in need. She discovered that children that are placed into the foster care system are not allowed to bring items from home and often end up sleeping in their clothes. Being alone and scared is unimaginable but perhaps having a warm, snuggly pair of pajamas can offer a little comfort during a very difficult time The past two years events were huge successes. This year’s “Wear a Pair, Bring a NEW Pair” will be THIS Friday, December 5, 2014.
The goal is to “Wear a Pair (and) Bring a NEW Pair” of PJs for the same gender and size as your child (although ALL sizes newborn to 16 are appreciated). Remember to wear tennis shoes; no slippers.
- Place new pajamas (your size and gender) in a large 1-gallon size Ziploc type bag.
- Use a Sharpie pen to write on the outside of the bag:
- Mark the SIZE of the pajamas, and
- Mark if they are for a BOY or a GIRL
- The Ziploc bag will keep your pajama “gift” clean and ready to give to a child.
- Look for the collection bins in the Malcom Harbor on Friday, December 5th.
I am looking forward to seeing all students and staff members wearing their pajamas and donating to someone less fortunate! Students do not need to donate in order to dress up.
We live in a world surrounded by technology. We know that whatever field our students choose to go into as adults, their ability to succeed will increasingly hinge on understanding how technology works. But only a tiny fraction of us are learning computer science, and less students are studying it than a decade ago.
That’s why Malcom is joining in on the largest learning event in history: The Hour of Code, during Computer Science Education Week (Dec. 8-14). Last year, 15 million students tried computer science in one week. This year, we're joining students worldwide to reach 100 million students! It is a fun, easy way to
Our Hour of Code event is designed to teach these foundational 21st century skills. It is fun too. Just ask the scholars in Mrs. Slee's 2nd grade and Mrs. Black's 1st grade. They have been learning to code a video game during computer lab this year.
The date is December 8th, 2014.
The Time is 2:15 - 4:00
The Place: Malcom's Dell Computer Lab.
Who will be there: Mrs. Slee, Mrs. Hardos, and several other teachers will be playing with code too. You and your children, 5yrs and older are welcome to come code. You may bring your own device, (iPad, chromebook, laptop, or tablet) or use one on of the 35 computers in the lab. First come, first serve of course. We will also have activities that involve programing without computers for the younger ones.
