Family Coding Night @ Molalla River MS

To Our K-8 Families,

We have some exciting news to share! Our middle school is participating in a Family Code Night, a learning event for all K-8 families. The event will be on Tuesday, February 28, at 6:00 PM at Molalla River Middle School. We encourage you to attend with your children--it's great fun and could inspire young talent.

  • What is Family Code Night? Watch the invitation video.

  • How can you participate? Join our event and register by February 24th by clicking this link.

  • Is coding experience needed? No! All you need is a shared computer, tablet, or Chromebook for each of the two family members connected to the internet. We will even supply the computer if needed.

  • Are there prizes? Yes! And everyone gets a Code@Home Guide, full of free coding games and activities.

I hope you and your children will join in for this family fun and shared learning. Make sure you register for this free event by February 24th. We’ll see you there!
