Kyla exemplified characteristics as one of the state's most promising leaders and will have the opportunity to learn and work closely with our U.S senators during Washington Week. Computer Science Education Week The Nevada Department of Education celebrated Computer Science Education Week last week. Computer Science Education Week is an annual call to action to inspire K-12 students to learn computer science, advocate for equity, and celebrate the contributions of students, educators, and partners to the field. Students at Churchill County Middle School in Mrs. Richardson's class spent the week continuing their Robotics and Coding Unit. They have been working with Spheros, Mindstorm EV3s, Cubelets, and Code.org where they design an interactive animated game! Students rotate through the stations so they all get to experience each one. We love seeing what comes out of our STEM classes, not just this week, but all year long.

Best on Monday. Students had the opportunity to try homemade pumpkin bread and homemade banana bread. They were super excited to try something new and are already talking about how they cannot wait for the next Discovery pop up event. We have been holding these pop up events every Monday at a different school. The students are loving it. On Thursday, the first Chartwells “student choice” event was held at CCHS. This is a tasting event where our students get to try and vote for the concept they like the best. After tasting both dishes, they get to cast their vote for their favorite. There was a dish we like to call Mac & Cheesyology. This is a macaroni and cheese served with a honey Buffalo sauce and topped with some Pico De Gallo. The other concept was Butcher & Baker, which was a sandwich and Italian wrap concept. Both dishes were really a big hit. However, after tallying the students' votes, their choice for best concept was the Mac & Cheesyology. This dish will be added to the menu at the high school in January.
