Hour of Code Event!
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 less students are studying it than a decade ago.
That’s why our entire school (elementary and middle) are joining in on the largest learning event in history: The Hour of Code, during Computer Science Education Week (Dec. 7-13). Many of our middle school students already experimented with coding in Mrs. Julius' coding class. But this This week we are bringing coding to the masses. Students will have a chance to try coding in the elementary and middle school libraries.The elementary school will have coding apps and games featured on tablets and computers for students to try. If you want to encourage your child to try coding come by the elementary library before school and after-school. In addition 4th-5th graders can come code during their lunch recess. Or check out some kid-friendly coding resources here and participate at home.
Let the coding begin!
