Hour of Code

Today, as a school, we participated in Hour of Code which is an international endeavor to get more kids computer literate and potentially lead them into the exciting field of Computer Science. Every Keheley student got the chance to work on their computer coding skills!

MakerSpace mornings are here!

Each morning in the Learning Commons, we have MakerSpace mornings where students can come and work on projects. We begin with teacher directed projects and lead into self-directed projects. Students can come one morning per week, based on their grade level.  The MakerSpace is open 7:20-7:50 each morning. Students must arrive at school and go to class prior to 7:40 in order to attend. They are returned to class in time for the news.

  • Are you collecting "pop tabs" to help families staying in Atlanta area Ronald McDonald Houses? You just need to remove the tabs from soda (and other) cans and save them in a plastic bag to bring to Keheley. By doing this, we are helping families with very sick children and helping our environment at the same time! (Don't forget to recycle the rest of the can!)
