Learning to code one hour at a time...

Why participate in the Hour of Code?

Did you know that in today’s economy, computing jobs outnumber students graduating into the field by 3-to-1? Computer science is foundational for every industry today, yet most of schools don’t teach it. (WE DO!!!)

We live in a world surrounded by technology. And we know that whatever field our students choose to go into as adults, their ability to succeed will increasingly hinge on understanding how technology works. But only a tiny fraction of us are learning computer science, and fewer students are studying it than were a decade ago. As I saw on Twitter yesterday: "Life is too short for the wrong career."

At SHS, we are trying to change that by joining in on the largest learning event in history: The Hour of Code.


Monday, Dec. 14th 2015 at 8am to Wednesday, Dec. 16th 2015 at 4pm


1.Teachers must sign students up. Anyone who is passing and has all work turned in for the semester may come to the library one or two times during the four day span. (No more than twice, however, so everyone can participate.)

2. Students must bring CHARGED laptops and GREAT attitudes.

3. Send them to the library during their allotted time.

4. Enjoy a moment or two to catch up on grading, work with students who need extra help, OR eat your way through Gradin' and Grazin', etc. We want this to benefit you too!

RSVPs are enabled for this event.


Students will watch a five minute explanation of the video, link to our Smore with the different ways to participate in the Hour of Code, and work independently through them. Easy as that!

We will host students every period. So get them signed up. Starting Thursday, December 10.
