Saturday, April 13, Sixth Avenue hosted the district Student Technology Fair. Ten students from Sixth Avenue were selected to participate. They all did very well. Our entire second grade class helped win the Classroom Champion trophy for their Plant Life Cycle animated movies. We will get to keep the travelling trophy for one year now. Sixth Avenue students also won prizes in the Multimedia, Digital Art/Photography, and Productivity Categories. Congratulations to these students.

Sixth Avenue Elementary held a fundraiser for Hurricane Sandy victims during the last week before Winter Break. Students and staff paid 25¢ each day to wear a hat. The money was collected for a donation to the American Red Cross. We raised over $400 during this time. Read the thank you letter from the Red Cross here.
On Thursday, September 13, Sixth Avenue had a visit from the Promethean Activbus. Students and staff from Sixth Avenue were able to see the latest and greatest technology tools in Promethean's ActivClassroom. Everyone truly enjoyed using the new ActivTable which is a multi-user, collaborative learning tool aimed at elementary school students. The Activbus spent the entire morning at Sixth Avenue before moving down the road to Paris Elementary for the afternoon. See more pictures and video on the Photo Album page.
Thank you to the Aurora Education Association's Technology Integration Caucus for arranging this special visit.
