The Hour of Code is Near!
Computers are everywhere, changing every industry on the planet. But fewer than half of all schools teach computer science. Good news is, we’re on our way to change this! If you've heard about the Hour of Code before, you might know it made history. More than 100 million students have tried an Hour of Code.
With the Hour of Code, computer science has been on homepages of Google, MSN, Yahoo!, and Disney. Over 100 partners have joined together to support this movement. Every Apple Store in the world has hosted an Hour of Code, and leaders like President Obama and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau wrote their first lines of code as part of the campaign.
This year, let's make it even bigger. I’m asking you to join the Hour of Code 2018. Please get involved with an Hour of Code event during Computer Science Education Week, December 3-9.
Get the word out. Host an event. Ask a your school's computer lab manager to sign up. Or try the Hour of Code yourself—everyone can benefit from learning the basics.

“The 'Hour of Code™' is a nationwide initiative by Computer Science Education Week [csedweek.org] and Code.org [code.org] to introduce millions of students to one hour of computer science and computer programming.”

Students at Chesbrough Elementary use iPads in the library to practice reading skills.
This school year, our teachers and students in upper elementary and high school have the opportunity to work online using Chromebooks and OnCourse Classroom. Teachers create online assignments through Oncourse Classroom for students to interact with on Chromebooks or desktop computers. Presenting class assessment in this way provides students with the opportunity to practice engaging with technology enhanced test items. Working online in the Oncourse Classroom environment will help better prepare students for testing in the spring.
