Hour of Code 2016 and Beyond

The week of December 5 through 9 was Computer Science Education Week (CSEdWeek). This is an annual program dedicated to inspiring students to take an interest in computer programming. The South Plainfield Public School District proudly participated in the “Hour of Code” as a part of CSEdWeek. Throughout the course of the week, students across the district had the opportunity to learn and write code in their classes. 

The “Hour of Code” is a nationwide initiative by CSEdWeek and to introduce computer programming to over 100 million students worldwide and encourage them to learn programming. Not only do these activities promote close reading, problem solving and logic, but they also provide students practice with the drag and drop skills necessary for the PARCC Assessment.

This year Mayor Matthew Anesh, Councilwoman Christine Faustini and Board of Education members Debbie Boyle and Bill Seesselberg joined Superintendent Noreen Lishak, Assistant Superintendent Mary Malyska, and Principal Ron Spring for the Hour of Code at the High School on December 9th.
