Hour of Code Update

Adkins Elementary School, Dec. 7-11, 2015

A Letter from Mrs. McLarty

Dear Parents,

As you know, our students participated in "The Hour of Code" this week in recognition of National Computer Science Week. Students at every level were excited about learning a new skill. Although this was only one hour of their week, it has sparked curiosity in their minds. Many students expressed an interest in learning more about coding. I hope you will support their interest by visiting Code.org. It is a wonderful website filled with many options for anyone, from beginner to advanced, to learn how to code. Learning to code can open many career opportunities in the future for our students.

Please take a moment to ask your child what they learned about coding, and how everyday items use code to operate. Without coding, our world would be very different.


Emily McLarty
