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 works.
Only a tiny fraction of students are truly learning how technology is developed and innovated upon. Only 35% of all high schools in the U.S. teach computer science.
That’s why our entire school is joining in on the largest technology learning event in history: The Hour of Code, during Computer Science Education Week (December 3-6). More than 100 million students worldwide have already tried an Hour of Code. Our Hour of Code is making a statement that Hannah Elementary Scholl 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. Please volunteer, reach out to local media, share the news on social media channels, and consider hosting additional Hour of Code events in the community. If you’ve never participated, this is a great event to experience with your child. Check in with your child’s teacher for dates and times.
This is a chance to change the future of education in Beverly.
