Hour of Code @ SHS!

Seekonk High is joining in on the largest learning event in history: The Hour of Code, during Computer Science Education Week next week (Dec. 8-11). Last year, 15 million students tried computer science in one week. This year, we're joining students worldwide to reach 100 million students!

Every science class will come to the SHS Library Media Center to try their hand at coding to create simple games for one period next week. Local professionals who work in computer science/technology fields will visit to share their career pathway stories, interact, and inspire students as they participate in this fun, casual event.

Check out this short video and visit website and try coding at ! And join the chat on Twitter using the hashstag #SeekonkHourOfCode.

What Most Schools Don't Teach

Google is Coming! Google is Coming!

SHS students start using Google Apps in middle school - but did you know that you can use it too? And, by January 2015, all SHS students and teachers will have school-issued Google e-mail accounts to facilitate communication and collaboration both inside and outside the school walls.

Don't know where to begin with Google? Suzanne Larson can give you a personalized tutorial, including:
- How to access your school-issued Google account
- Setting up and organizing folders
- Creating a Google doc to share

Just send Suzanne an e-mail to schedule a time. Also, listen for announcements for special afterschool sessions for teachers in December and January.

New Arrivals!
