Hour of Code™ Is Coming to CGMS!
CGMS is excited to participate in the Hour of Code™ and has challenged its sister middle schools to participate in a friendly competition to see how many students can participate.
The Hour of Code™ is an international event designed to expose students to coding, computer programming, and other computer science principles. Students will work on completing the Hour of Code™ during the week of Dec 7 to 11. For more information, visit https://code.org/stats and https://hourofcode.com/files/hoc-one-pager.pdf.
We also encourage parents to participate in the Hour of Code™ by signing up for an account by visiting https://hourofcode.com/us.
