Our Character Counts 

Third Graders at Kelley Smith Elementary School have learned that their Character Counts all of the time. After completing a lesson about helping others in their community they discussed ways that they could help others.  Students decided that they could raise money for the ALS Foundation.  Not wanting to stop there, students with the help of Mrs. Jamie Larrivee and Kasey Keller decided to form a group who meets one a month to complete acts of kindness for their school and community.

Hour of Code

To kick off National Computer Science Education week, 3rd-5th  graders, at Kelley Smith Elementary School enjoyed Hour of Code during their Media Center Special time. Hour of Code first started as a one-hour time slot set aside to introduce computer science and to show that any person and any age can learn the basics of computer science.  While students at KSES learned about Coding last year using Dot and Dash robotics this year during Hour of Code they learned how the producers of Star Wars use coding with Robots like BB8.
