Hour of Code is Here!
Join our school in supporting Hour of Code! We live in a world surrounded by technology. And we know that whatever career path your child chooses, his or her ability to succeed will increasingly depend on understanding how technology works. That’s why Daniels Run is joining in on The Hour of Code during Computer Science Education Week (Dec. 8-14). Throughout the week your student will experience a new language, computer code via games and online activities. Hour of Code supports developing 21st century skills including critical thinking, collaboration and communication. Ask your students about Hour of Code! See more information here!
