From the library media center:

This week is all about the Hour of Code. Second, third, and fifth graders had a chance to try out computer programming during their library classes. Fourth graders will have that chance next week.

If you didn't have a chance to join us for our parent event the other night, but you are interested in how code is used to create computer programs and video games, hour of code is the place to start.

Below is the can search for India Hook Elementary Pirates and click to join. You do NOT have to make a donation today. There is an option to donate later, but this will set you up with an account that you can share with friends and family. If you participated last year, you should still have an account in your name.
