As a part of an upcoming after-school activity, Framingham Public Schools is partnering with Kano Computing, a London based technology company who makes computers for kids! Kano's U.S office is right here in Framingham and we are inviting your students to take part in a fun 2- hour session to learn all about building and running a computer.

This opportunity will be taking place on May 20th, 21st, and 22nd. The sessions will be AFTER clubs but there will also be a few slots open DURING clubs to those who need them. Please contact Mr. Jantzen for a parental consent form.

Even When it Rains Our Backyard Games Club Still Finds a Way to Play!
