RDMS Library Club hosts
Visiting Author Ruta Sepetys!
Best-selling Young Adult author Ruta Sepetys had River Dell Middle School students on the edge of their seats during her visit on February 5, just days after the publication of her third novel, Salt to the Sea.
Like her 2012 New York Times best-selling YA book Between Shades of Gray, Ms. Sepetys's new book is gripping historical fiction recounting a little-known episode from the Soviet occupation of small nations in Eastern Europe during World War II. Salt to the Sea tells the story of young people fleeing the Soviets only to board the doomed vessel Wilhelm Gustloff.
Ms. Sepety's stories come from close to home - both her father and his cousin spent many years in refugee camps during the Soviet occupation of their native Lithuania.
Here Ms. Sepetys poses for a picture with some member of the RDMS Library Club after her fascinating talk.
RDMS Library Club Hosts HOUR OF CODE!
Library Club's 2nd Annual Hour of Code on December 15th was a smashing success with attendance up 100 percent from year one and a group of teachers joining in on this important tech event.
The RDMS event was one of nearly 200,000 in 180 countries around the world. Approximately 75 RDMS students joined together to participate in the National Computer Science Education Week event. The activities were introduced by Library Club member 8th Grader Rebecca Z and our very own 7th Grader Mitchell B led the coding by having his work projected on the screen.
Hour of Code is an international event intended to introduce youngsters to computer coding in fun and engaging activities. Here are some of our RDMS coders at work!
