Hour of Code

The Hour of Code, during Computer Science Education Week: December 7th - 13th

Dear Parents,

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 hinge on understanding how technology works. But only a tiny fraction of us are learning computer science, and less students are studying it than a decade ago!

That’s why CCS participates each year in the largest learning event in history: The Hour of Code, during Computer Science Education Week! More than 100 million students worldwide have already tried an Hour of Code. CCS' participation in The Hour of Code is a statement that our school is ready to teach these foundational, 21st century skills. This school year, our Elementary and Junior High students will be participating.

In order to continue bringing programming activities to your students, we want to make our Hour of Code event a success. Next week during computer classes, each student will begin their hour of code. They will be learning the basics of computer programming and will begin writing computer code. We will kickoff our learning event next week, and it will extend through the month of December.

Some of our students may create a game that could be shared with you via your cell phone number. If you wish to see what your student has created, please fill out the form below with the cell phone number you wish the student to use. Please note that this phone number will not be shared or used in any other way. If you do not wish your student to share the game, that is perfectly fine; this is completely optional. Permission Form
