Something like lights and noises bother some kids with autism more than they might bother you

· Kids with autism look just like you and I do

· Kids with autism like to have friends they just don’t know how to make them

Did you like our Hour of Code Event? Check out the resources to extend beyond that day!

Southwest Middle School will be hosting a school-wide Hour of Code event next Thursday, December 14th in honor of International Computer Science Week and Admiral Grace Hopper’s birthday (December 9th).


Join the Hour of Code!

Learn more about our District’s Participation:

Our district’s Computer Science teachers community and I would like to invite you and our students to participate in this year’s Hour of Code Event during Computer Science Education week, December 4 – 9! Many schools in our district will be conducting individual classes to school-wide activities for the Hour of Code next week. Last year, we had several hundred students participate across the district, and we hope to increase those numbers this year!

 

I am hoping that you will support our district’s Computer Science program by helping us share out the Hour of Code information by placing information on our district and individual school Web sites about the Hour of Code and Computer Science Education week.

 

Every year we have done this, both students and staff have responded that they really enjoyed the experience! We hope that you will be willing to allow our students to participate in this year’s Hour of Code Event!

 

If you have any questions, please contact me. For more information about the Hour of Code, please check out the following!
