THIS WEEK AT CONCORDIA

Global CodeaThon

On Saturday, May 6th eight 4th & 5th Grade students represented Concordia at the Annual Global Codeathon, sponsored by UNIS Hanoi. Fifteen schools from around the world participated in this exciting event.

The Global Codeathon is a celebratory event open to anyone interested in coding. The main goal is to foster a love of coding and to collaborate with other young coders. The Codeathon provided an opportunity for young coders to meet and learn from one another. Concordia was also lucky to have two seasoned high school coders help in teaching the younger students about programming in both English and Vietnamese!

During the Codeathon, students were challenged to create video games and animations using Scratch. Other students built and programmed robots. The most exciting part was the Coding Slam, where students from each school shared their final projects in a one-minute presentation. Scott Chen, Grade 5, represented Concordia in the Coding Slam.

It was amazing to see such high levels of creativity and critical thinking from students in countries such as Tanzania, Uzbekistan, India and of course, Vietnam! Mr. Elliott and Mrs. Snider were extremely proud of our Concordia coders - 4th Graders: U-Hyeok Kwon, Mai Anh Pham, Thao Pham, Tim Leummens, Preston Badger, Chris Cho and 5th Graders: Scott Chen and Daniel Kim.

A huge thank you to Concordia middle schoolers Linh Pham and Jack Boone. Well done everyone and we are looking forward to another great coding event next year!

Elementary Music Concerts

TEN LITTLE LADYBUGS: PRESCHOOL- GRADE 1
Based on the book, “10 Little Ladybugs” by Melanie Gerth, our Concordia Preschool- Grade 1 students showcased their musical talent in this wonderful ‘ladybug’ themed concert.


GRADE 2-5 CONNECTED SHOWCASE
Music has a way of connecting people. In this case, music also made the jump of  connecting different subjects that the students are currently studying. To make this  performance even more intriguing, the rhythms, lyrics, and movements came about through input from the students themselves. This showcase of true creator talent made for a wonderful concert!

Preschool Shoe Project

Our Concordia preschooler students have inquired about all things SHOES. As part of their project learning, the students learned to make shoes from all sorts of materials, even paper and tape! The students learned how to repair shoes and more from local shoe aficionados. As a culmination of the project, the students wanted to know just HOW shoes are made so the classes visited one of the few remaining shoe makers in Hanoi.

HOW DOES OUR GARDEN GROW?

What better way to cultivate learning than through actually cultivating crops? Both our elementary and upper school students have  a chance to get their hands dirty in our school community garden.  

Both our preschool classes are  growing a variety of plants including radishes, sweet potatoes, cucumbers, melons, house plants, and herbs.  “Can you guess which is their favorite plant in the whole garden?” asks preschool teacher, Mrs. Elliott. “The weeds- some of the kids think they are the most interesting plants!” 

Next time you are on campus, why not take a peek at just how well our garden is growing?

Elementary Students Program Lego Robots

Who said building ROBOTS is only for grown ups?  The fourth and fifth grade students in the After School Activity Robotics use legos to build real robots.  Those robots were connected to their computers and students employed their coding skills to make the robots come alive.  As a test of their programming skills, students were tasked with testing the robots’ ability to catapult items and were judged on speed, accuracy, and several other factors.  Welcome to 21st century learning, everyone!

Elementary Spirit Week

Elementary spirit week is all about building community and having a little fun.  Take a look at the different themed days below to see how our students spent the week.

Monday Class Color Day: Each class chose a color and everyone came to school in that same color, according to their grade.

Twinsie Tuesday: Pick a friend (or two) and come to school dressed the same way. I think I am seeing double (and triple!)

Wacky Wednesday: Mismatched socks, crazy hair, and anything else you think is a little wacky- that’s what Wacky Wednesday was all about!

Sporty Thursday:  Show off your athletic look or your favorite team jersey.  Students dressed in sports paraphernalia on this day.

I Have a Dream Friday: Dress as what you want to be when you grow up.  We had a great deal of incredible future adults walking around campus on this day.

All-School Art Show

Every year our campus walls come alive as we host our entire student body’s artistic endeavors via the All-School Art Show.  Every single student in the school plays a role in the show- whether through contributions in their art class or by visiting the show itself to learn more about painting, sculpture, pottery, and many other techniques of art expression.  Take a look at the participants and their work.

Celebrating Easter

Led by our middle and high school students, Concordia’s annual Easter assembly is a time for community and reflection on the true meaning of Easter.  Our entire school participated in a gathering in the new gym to sing and learn more about the story of hope and grace that are intertwined in this special day.

A powerful message was shared as the students sang lyrics by Matt Maher “no burden great can hold you down.” A huge thank you to our middle and high school choir for sharing through musical talent and the hope portrayed in their music.
