Hour of Code

Dear Families,
Next week, December 5-10, Cove Elementary will be involved in an event called "The Hour of Code".  Students and teachers will be joining more than 100 million students across the globe in an event to celebrate Computer Science Education Week.  
We believe that no matter what path our children choose for future professions, their ability to succeed will increasingly hinge on the understanding of how technology works. Learning code is the basis for understanding how technology works and communicates with humans, makes robots move, or changes the traffic lights on the streets.  Coding applications are everywhere!

To make this event a success, we need help from you - our families!  Get involved, and help our students work through their hour of coding sessions!  No experience is necessary, we are asking volunteers to assist children with questions that arise while they are learning about coding. 

We encourage you to volunteer and get involved.  The link with the schedule and teacher/class assignments is here:

This is a chance to change the future of education in Beverly and for your child.
See for details, and help spread the word.
A kickoff event will be held on Friday afternoon at school.  Ask your child about it!
Thank you all for your consideration.
The Cove Elementary School Staff & PTO
