Welcome to Navy ES!
Navy Elementary Wild Readers!
Dear Navy Elementary Wild Readers,
You have been officially challenged by your teachers to see who can read more books! During the month of January, the entire Navy staff will be challenging all students to a reading challenge to see who can read more books. When you finish reading a book, click on the survey link below. The results will be reported on Monday’s morning news and there will be a display in the lobby by the main office. The contest will end on Friday, January 29th. If the students beat the staff, ALL students can participate in a PJ and reading day in your classroom. There will also be a prize for the class that reads the most books!

Hour of Code
We live in a world surrounded by technology. And 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 our entire school participated in The Hour of Code during Computer Science Education Week (Dec. 7-13). Our Hour of Code is a statement that Navy ES is ready to teach these foundational 21st century skills.
Students accessed coding activities by linking on the image below. These activites are also linked form the Student Internet Resources section of the Navy website. Students and teachers had lots of fun participating in this event!
