The Hour of Code

Students and Parents,

This morning at Eminence, every student (Kindergarten through High School) participated in a global event meant to introduce students to the world of computer programming: The Hour of Code.


Here is a list of resources from the event if your students want to keep practicing their skills at home:

The Eminence Fantasy Football Playoffs Are Set!

Eminence Fifth Graders:

It's time for the Eminence Fantasy Football Playoffs! 


A few guidelines: 

    ~ If your team did not finish in the top 16, your season is over.  Sorry!  In order to receive full credit on the assignment, you'll need to have your team's score calculated through week 12 by the end of next week.    
    ~ It is now a "head to head" matchup format.  The team with the highest score each week advances on to the next round.  
    ~ Each week, the team with the better record gets "Home Field Advantage" over the team with the lower seed.     
    ~ Home field advantage is a 10 point bonus each week.   
    ~ We will "reseed" the bracket after each round.  In other words, the highest seeded team remaining will always play the lowest seeded team remaining.  
    ~ There is no "Home Field Advantage" in the Super Bowl.  
    ~ Superbowl winner gets a trophy!  
Make sure your teams are set and ready to go each week.  Brackets are "locked" on Thursday of each week. 
Good luck!  Here's the playoff bracket as of today: 

Have a great Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving!


I hope you all have a great week.  Thanksgiving is always one of my favorite holidays -- mostly because I get to do four of my favorite things (all on the same day):
   ~ Spend time with my family
   ~ Eat ridiculous amounts of turkey
   ~ Watch football
   ~ Nap

I'm also interested to see where you all are headed for the break.  Would you mind filling out this form for me?  Click here to take it.

If you're staying in town for the break (absolutely nothing wrong with that), feel free to put "Eminence, Kentucky".

Thanks!
