Avondale Elementary School District participates in the Hour of Code
Wednesday, December 10th | 5:30pm - 6:30pm
To celebrate the addition of Computer Programming as a core class for all our students in grades K-8, this year we will be participating in the Hour of Code.
Computers are everywhere, but fewer schools teach computer science than 10 years ago. Girls and minorities are severely underrepresented. Good news is, we’re on our way to change this.
Every one of the 5,760 students at the Avondale Elementary School District (made up of 10 Title I schools) are joining in on the largest learning event in history: The Hour of Code, during Dec. 8-12. The Hour of Code movement is aiming for 100 million students to participate.
I'm writing to invite you to attend our community event, and to witness our kids celebrate computer science on December 10, 2014. You will also see our students helping their parents and community members learn how to write computer programs.
The Hour of Code, organized by the nonprofit Code.org and over 100 others, is a statement that today’s generation of students are ready to learn critical skills for 21st century success. Please join us.
