MJS Class of 2016
A Newsletter for All Things 8th Grade
Week of January 18, 2016
Hour of Code
The 8th graders participated in the MJS Hour of Code on Wednesday, January 13th!
We live in a world surrounded by technology. And we know that whatever field our students choose to go into as adults, their ability to succeed will increasingly hinge on understanding how technology works. That's why we are participating in Hour of Code; a global movement to introduce and reinforce computer science to students.
See http://hourofcode.com/us for more info on the movement.
