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. Fewer than half of all schools teach computer science.
That’s why our entire school is joining in on the largest learning event in history: The Hour of Code, during Computer Science Education Week (December 4-10). More than 100 million students worldwide have already tried an Hour of Code.
Our Hour of Code is making a statement that Fairfield Elementary is ready to teach these foundational 21st-century skills. I encourage you to ask your child about their Hour of Code week and consider engaging in additional Hour of Code lessons in your homes.
This is a chance to change the future of education in Leesburg.
