Hour of Code

Hour of Code Logo
The students at Donna Lee Loflin are excited to participate in the annual Hour of Code! Our school will be coding during the week of December 10-14, 2018.
 

WHY?

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.

But only a tiny fraction of us are learning how technology works. Only 35% of all high schools teach computer science.

That’s why our entire school is joining in on the largest learning event in history: The Hour of Code. More than 100 million students worldwide have already tried an Hour of Code. Our Hour of Code is making a statement that Loflin 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. 

See http://hourofcode.com/us for details, and help spread the word.       

 

Stay tuned for pictures of our school-wide event!

To volunteer to help out or share your knowledge with our students, please call the front office at 336-625-1685.
