This week is Computer Science Education Week (CSEdWeek) and to help prepare students for their future, Edina High School (EHS) is joining in a national Hour of Code campaign. During the week, each math class will spend an hour learning how to code and program computers. In an added twist, classes were taught by AP Computer Science (APCS) students at EHS, along with their teacher Nancy Johnson.
Edina High School (EHS) senior, Linnea Palmstrom, has been observing nature in the Nine Mile Creek area behind Creek Valley Elementary School ever since she was a student there. As an avid wildlife photographer and nature-lover, Palmstrom wanted to share her passion and help get kids excited about the natural environment. She was able to connect with Creek Valley KIDS Club and got the green light to lead a weekly club at her former elementary school during the fall semester.
Edina Public Schools is proud to announce Geneva Fitzsimonds as one of two Minnesota Music Educators of the Year. Fitzsimonds teaches 7th and 9th grade band, as well as jazz bands for all grades, at South View Middle School (SVMS).
