IMMERSIVE EDUCATION PROGRAM
Immersive Ed classes for the 2019-20 school year are off to a great start! Students are happily involved in planning, creating, and programming throughout the halls of St. John's! Our youngest students are working with the graphics tools and programming characters in Scratch Jr. In Scratch 3.0, students work with graphics, logic, costumes, and communication. With Minecraft, students engage in history, science, technology, art, architecture, engineering and 3D graphics. We are excited for this new year of coding activities!

BACK TO SCHOOL FAMILY BBQ
As summer draws to a close, we were blessed with a beautiful day for our annual BBQ on Sunday at Tudor Wharf in Charlestown. It was good to see many new parents and their children this year. Terri, the Science Mentor, entertained the kids with his experiments that they could participate in. They had a blast!
