Hour of Code Hour of Code
 
 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 hinge on understanding how technology works. But only a tiny fraction of us are learning computer science, and less students are studying it than a decade ago. That’s why our entire school joined in on the largest learning event in history: The Hour of Code, during Computer Science Education Week (Dec. 7-13). More than 100 million students worldwide have already tried an Hour of Code. Our 6th graders participated during their math classes on Thursday, December 10. Our 7th graders participated during math class and our 8th graders participated during science classes on Friday, December 11. If you would like to join in with the activities that they did you can find them at https://code.org/learn . If you would like to see more pictures of our students working on Hour of Code, please visit our facebook page.

is an initiative of Cabarrus County Schools to allow students and staff to bring their own devices (laptops, netbooks, tablets, e-readers, iPads, iPods, smart phones, etc.) to school to use for instructional purposes and school business.  The faculty and staff of Mt.
