SPS Progress Report Changes: Seattle Public Schools has made some changes to the progress reports families receive each trimester for elementary students. A few years ago, Washington State adopted new College and Career Readiness Standards (known as Common Core). Families will see updated standards in the areas of English Language Arts, Math and Learning Behaviors. Because the new College and Career Readiness Standards (Common Core) cover only English Language Arts and Math, standards in other subject areas like Science are not changing.  You can learn more with the following video on these changesYour student’s classroom teacher will review the progress report during your child’s conference in November.

John Hay Will Launch Our Coding Unit in Technology with Hour of Code: Last year, 40,000 teachers led a grassroots effort called the Hour of Code – to introduce ten million students to one hour of computer science. Kids including John Hay tried one hour of writing code and making apps in classrooms, and they loved it. This year, John Hay will also be participating during Computer Science Education Week (Dec 8 – 14).
