Extending the Hour of Code

IMG_4248

Last week we celebrated Hour of Code and had close to 500 students spend at least one session coding. Seeing the excitement for the subject is very gratifying and if your children will have any screen time this winter break, you may want to consider having them go to these sites.

Additionally, the school has subscription to Raz Kids, Everyday Math, and various other resources linked from the computer lab website.

On behalf of the Nixon staff, we hope you have a joyous break with the family.
