Hour of Code Week
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 1st - 5th grade at Hardy are joining in on the largest learning event in history: The HourofCode, during the week of Jan 25. Last year, 100 million students (including our 4th and 5thgrades) tried computer science in one week. This year, we're joining students worldwide to reach 200 million students! Our HourofCode is a statement that Hardy School is ready to teach these foundational 21st century skills. To continue bringing programming activities to your students, we want to make our HourofCode event impactful. I encourage you to volunteer, reach out to local media and share the news on your social media channels.
The schedule will be as follows: Mo 25. 3rd and 5th grade starting @ 9 and 9:15 am Wed 27 2nd and 4th starting @ 8:30 am Fri 29 1st starting @ 8:30 We’ll be kicking off classes on a rolling schedule starting at the time indicated. We could use your help for up to 2h those mornings. This is a chance to change the future of education in Arlington.
See link here for details, and help spread the word. Please sign up here if you are able to help out in a classroom. No coding experience necessary.

Hardy parents Sarah Evans and Bruce Macindoe have been working hard to design these beautiful 100% cotton hoodies for children and adults. These sweatshirts are available for purchase online here. Hoodies are $25 each and run a bit small, so order a size up…better to have room to grow!
