Watson Teachers learn to code
On February 25, Watson Teachers spent their professional development engaged in coding. The Teachers learned why learning to code is important and how they can integrate it into their classroom. They used several different apps and websites to experience how fun it can be.
The next day Ms. Tinney shared her new knowledge with her classroom and let them experiences coding for themselves. Ms. Tinney said that her class, "Loved it! I told them ahead of time that this is problem solving so they need to think out the problem. No one asked for help or gave up trying!" Watson Teachers are excited about sharing this with their students.
Watson Boosterthon is a success
Our 1st Watson Boosterthon was a total success. We would like to thank all of our students and families for their fantastic support. A very special thanks to our wonderful PTA for all of their tireless work and effort. Watch the run here.
Watson Alumni are going places
Often students and teachers wonder what happened to a former student they knew. Mrs. Haley set out to answer that question and did. She contacted many of our former Wildcats to see where they have gone and where they are continuing to go. As you can see our Wildcats are everywhere and are going places. Take a look here.

Watson's students and staff celebrate College Day
As part of our commitment to ignite our students’ passion for college, our students and staff celebrate College Days! During these designated days, students are encouraged to wear a college t-shirt with jeans. There are plenty of activities focused on setting their goals for higher education. For instance, students in Mrs. Chavez class did a research project about the university that they would like to attend. Students then used this information to create a digital presentations using iMovie, Keynote, Educreations, Tellagami, Powtoon and Animoto, to share with students and parents.
Our next College Day will be February 25th. We look forward to seeing our Wildcats rocking their college t-shirts. Watch here.
