Message from the Head of School
The Family Day of Code, Tinkering, and Play 7.0
Sunday, November 15th, 2020
This will be the first ONLINE edition of the Day of Code. We know we can make it bigger than ever, this is why this year sky's NOT the limit but SPACE is the limit. We can invite everyone to participate - beyond our local community. Share the information with friends and family who are out of state or even abroad! Together we can make an amazing event happen. Questions/ideas: vanina@yavnehdayschool.org
Share Your Favorite Day of Code Memory
Can't wait for the Day of Code? Hear from Naomi about her favorite Day of Code memory. Send Morah Vanina your testimony so we can publish it too.
All Yavneh families are invited to play a virtual version of the Yavneh STEAM game on Jamboard. If you play, please leave a sticky note with your name on page two of the game. Have fun!
