Ollie Visits Thetford Elementary School

Our students have really enjoyed their 1st week with Ollie. We have decided to name her Tessa. Fourth graders programmed Tessa to make dreaming sounds and roll forever in the shape of a square all while under human student bridges. What fun!​

Getting creative

Third graders pulled out the Imagination Playground blocks to augment their BB-8 track today.  It was great to hear their ideas develop and see the teamwork!  We have one more week with BB-8 before we have to send him on his way.
