This week, Admiral Menchie’s donated over 1,000 ounces of yogurt to over 120 Lafayette students who raised more than $200 each in Walk-A-Thon pledges. These Menchie’s parties were a huge incentive for these students to raise over $24,000 in sponsorships. The smiling students and statements of joy were almost as satisfying as the delicious yogurt. Please join the Lafayette PTA in thanking Admiral Menchie’s and the rest of our business sponsors for making this year’s Walk-A-Thon a success.
The Seattle Public Schools is proud to announce free Keyboarding Skills Practice for all students in Grades 2-8. They can build and improve their keyboarding skills at school and at home using Typing Agent. Using a web browser, (Firefox is recommended) go to https://seattleschools.typingagent.com.
Please have your child practice 15 minutes each evening. This will help them build speed and accuracy. Students will also be using this program during Technology Instruction.
Make sure they sit up straight and position their fingers correctly on the home row (See below).
If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.
Thanks for helping developing your child’s keyboard skills.
