Hour of Code

Dec 21, 2017 Computer Science Education Week was December 4-10, and the Hour of Code was one way teachers could draw attention to the importance of computer science to prepare our students for college and careers. Mr. Kinder, Ms. Cherrone, and Ms. Reed participated in the Hour of Code.  They learned how to  make computer programming accessible to everyone through fun, quick lessons, which included Drawing with code, Creating webpages, and Creating SQL databases.
