Hour of Code Taking Place at Woodland Park Magnet School
Woodland Park Magnet School’s Wildcats participated in Hour of Code the week of December 9, 2019. The Hour of Code started as a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify “code”, to show that anybody can learn the basics, and to broaden participation in the field of computer science. Every student at Woodland Park has the opportunity to learn computer science. It helps nurture problem-solving skills, logic and creativity. By starting as early as Kindergarten, our students will have a foundation for success in any 21st-century career path.

Students at Chesbrough Elementary use iPads in the library to practice reading skills.
This school year, our teachers and students in upper elementary and high school have the opportunity to work online using Chromebooks and OnCourse Classroom. Teachers create online assignments through Oncourse Classroom for students to interact with on Chromebooks or desktop computers. Presenting class assessment in this way provides students with the opportunity to practice engaging with technology enhanced test items. Working online in the Oncourse Classroom environment will help better prepare students for testing in the spring.

We would like to congratulate Cathy Thompson of D.C. Reeves Elementary School. She is the winner of the Chromebook donated by Farm Bureau Insurance Agency of Tangipahoa. Mrs. Thompson along with other teachers from our parish completed the Ag in the Classroom 2 … Can You Dig It! Bitty PLC Online class in November. Upon completion of all the assignments, the Farm Bureau Board of Directors read the teachers’ final assignment and selected a winner. What a fantastic partnership between Farm Bureau Agency of Tangipahoa and the TPSS Schools. Thank You Farm Bureau!
