Every year, students at SDMHS participate in the worldwide "Hour of Code" movement. It's a chance for students to explore coding in various formats, learning a new skill and honing their problem solving skills. With games, robotics activities, and even opportunities to practice coding real apps, students will get their feet wet with basic computer science.

NaNoWriMo Begins!

posted Nov 1, 2017, 6:01 AM by Susan Capwell

Ever try to write a novel? Our students have!

Students at Searsport District Middle/High School have participated in National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) for seven years now, and a new crop of writers is embarking on their novels. 
NaNoWriMo is a rich and creative experience that requires students to write as frequently as possible over the course of the month. This hard work deepens student investment in the process (and their finished products). At the end of November, educators and participants also report improved self-confidence, creative writing skills, overall writing skills, and time management.

The month will be full of fun NaNoWriMo events (and lots and lots of writing), but most exciting of all are the two NaNoWriMo Write-Ins! On Friday, 11/3 and Thurs, 11/30, student writers (and their chaperones) will take over the library participating in writing games, plot challenges, workshops and, of course, working on their novels! This is a fun opportunity for students to engage in their writing with their fellow writers in a creative atmosphere.

Permission slips for Friday's write-in are due ASAP.

Students who wish to participate in NaNoWriMo can contact Ms. Capwell to sign up.
