Fifth- and sixth-grade students in the district celebrated Computer Science Education Week, Dec. 9-13, by participating in an “hour of code.” Organized by fifth-grade math teacher Norma Carbone and computer science teacher Laura Forsyth, all fifth- and sixth-graders spent one hour learning about and engaging in computer coding. Coding, which is a set of directions for programming on a computer, has proven integral for teaching students basic problem-solving skills.
