Free PD with Code.org!

Dear Elementary Educators,

We are very excited to share with you a FREE workshop that will be offered in Wallingford on Saturday, January 11th. Regardless of what subject you teach, computer science is foundational knowledge for all students in the 21st century. Additionally, this is a subject the kids love learning.

With the help of Code.org and Sacred Heart University, we are providing a no cost, one-day workshop for elementary school teachers (and administrators!) interested in teaching and learning about computer science. Even if you have participated in one of their workshops in the past, please join us since the curriculum has been updated for the 2019-2020 school year.
