|The Fourth Grade Tiger Squadron|
It's been a busy and productive week at Farpoint. We're nearly finished taking our 3rd grade squadrons on their first missions into deep space. Tuesday brought the first of five 4th grade squadrons.

I've always said how beneficial it would be if I could bottle their enthusiasm. Calming them to the point where we can get anything done is the challenge, but after they're trained and launch - Watch Out. These fourth graders are unbeatable. Watching them work their way through their mission is like watching a real TV show. They are deadly serious, attentive, and determined to succeed.

Renaissance Academy's Farpoint Space Education Center graduated its first class of up and coming programmers today. These soon to be well knowns successfully completed Google CS's eight week storytelling SCRATCH programming course. Dedication is the word to describe them. They were up and programming before dawn every Saturday morning for the last two months.
Standing with them are two of our volunteer guru's. Andrew and Chris were tremendous help, considering the only programming language I know is Apple's long dead Hypercard. My job during the length of the course was to supervise, offer praise, encouragement, and ensure none of these little genius did anything to threaten our national security. The guru's handled the technical stuff.
Our next class starts on Saturday.

Scott is cool.
