Teachers from AOS92 and across Maine gathered at VCS this Saturday for a day of learning how to teach computer science using Code.org. Mike Harvey was the facilitator for 14 educators who spent the day conducting sample "unplugged" lessons, exploring computer science for young learners, and trying out the lessons on Code.org. This is the second time that Mike has been invited to VCS to conduct this awesome workshop. Thanks Mike!

For the past two weekends about 10 JMG students helped (along with a number of parents); helped to build a small equipment/garden shed for the new owners of the old Bridget's Church in Vassalboro, Jim and Rachel Kilbride. One more weekend and the shingles will go on the roof and the doors will be installed.
Harvey Ball, a commercial artist from Worcester, Mass. created the smiley face in 1963. This symbol has become the most recognizable symbol of good will and good cheer on the planet. Mr. Ball created World Smile Day to remind others that the smile is not just to be commercialized. The smile should be honored and that each year on the first Friday in October worldwide we should celebrate smiles and kindness. Please encourage others to do an Act of Kindness...help one person smile!
