Our students are changing the future with an Hour of Code
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 depend on understanding how technology
But only a tiny fraction of us are learning
how technology works. Fewer than half of all schools teach computer science.
That’s why our entire school is joining in on
the largest learning event in history: The Hour of Code, during
Computer Science Education Week (December 4-10). More than 100 million students
worldwide have already tried an Hour of Code.
Our Hour of Code is making a statement that
Our Lady of the Rosary is ready to teach these foundational 21st-century
skills. To continue bringing programming activities to your students, we want
to make our Hour of Code event huge. I encourage you to talk to your children,
engage in their learning, and share the news on social media channels.
Over the course of the week, students will be
participating in a variety of coding activities in the classrooms. It would be
great if you could share in this experience with your child at home.
This is a chance to change the future of
education in Wyoming and on the Central Coast.
