We live in a world surrounded by technology. And we know that whatever field our children 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 our entire school is joining in on the largest learning event in history: The Hour of Code, during Computer Science Education Week (Dec. 7-11). More than 100 million students worldwide have already 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 joined together to support this movement. Last year, every Apple Store in the world hosted an Hour of Code and even President Obama wrote his first line of code as part of the campaign.
This year, let’s help make it even bigger. I’m asking you to join Cotswold Elementary for the Hour of Code 2015 by volunteering 1 hour of your time to the students. We need 2 volunteers for each class.
If you are interested in volunteering, please email Bradley & Lodora Addison at firstname.lastname@example.org to signup for a specific spot. Please indicate grade level and time. Also, let us know if there’s a specific class you would like to work with. For more information about this event, visit https://hourofcode.com/us. Thank you so much for your support!!
