PARENT RESOURCE - MAY 22

 - May 22, 2020 
 
Dear Parents/Guardians:  
 
We have received this information from the New York Hall of Science.  They are offering free sessions. 
 
 
NYSCI At Home

Do you think your child will have fun learning the basics of coding or building programming skills to create fun projects? If your answer is “Yes!”, read on.

NYSCI’s offering three free Scratch programming webinars that offer a safe space for students to develop their basic block coding skills through the open-source tool Scratch. If they’re already familiar with it, we can help them build their knowledge. We’d love to see any of their works in progress, but will have options if they want to start a new project. We’ll be offering a range of familiar challenges from NYSCI’s own Design Lab activities as prompts!

There are three Zoom sessions you can sign up for next week by clicking here or the button below. All webinars will be held from 4:00 - 5:30 pm EDT:

  • Tuesday, May 26th
  • Wednesday, May 27th
  • Thursday, May 28th
Get inspired before the webinar with some of the cool GIFs, games and animations other people have made with Scratch, like Original Donkey Kong, an Angry Birds GIF, and a Bubble Game. The Scratch Team at MIT has turned the month of May into "Scratch Month" and have organized prompts and themes for projects that you can make and find here.

See you online, we'll be hosting the webinars!

National Blue Ribbon

   

Hard work really does pay off! Our school is fortunate enough to share that we have been named a National Blue Ribbon School! This is a prestigious award given to schools who achieve academic excellence and close achievement gaps. Additionally, this is given to schools who create a safe and welcoming environment for their students. This year we had a big celebration to honor our school, which was held in Maestros with a carnival theme. Students were encouraged to circulate the room and play games to win prizes. 

Our Mission Statement

The mission of Carl C. Icahn Charter School is to use the Core Knowledge curriculum, developed by E.D. Hirsch, to provide students with a rigorous academic program offered in an extended day/year setting.  Students will graduate armed with the skills and knowledge to participate successfully in the most rigorous academic environments, and will have a sense of personal and community responsibility.  

SCHOOL CLOSING- UPDATED MARCH 16, 2020

 School will be closed from Monday, March 16, 2020 until Friday, April 17, 2020.  School will resume on Monday, April 20, 2020.
