TJ learning to code

IMPORTANT UPDATE:   There has been an overwhelming response and we are pleased that so many students want to learn more about computer science.

Unfortunately, we have had to close our registration for events on December 10 & 11.  We will not be able to accept any more participants.  We are planning to have TJ Hour of Code events in January.  We will send home information after we have finalized plans.

Students and parents can participate in the Hour of Code at any time.  We can suggest visiting the following sites:



Join "TJ TechnoTiger" and students everywhere who are celebrating computer science  and writing code during Computer Science Education Week December 8-14, 2014.  The goal to have tens of millions of students try an Hour of Code this week.  Every student should have the opportunity to learn computer science.  It helps nurture problem-solving skills, logic and creativity.  By starting early, students will have a foundation for success in any 21st-century career path.  The Hour of Code is organized by Code.org, a public 501c3 non-profit dedicated to expanding participation in computer science by making it available in more schools.

At TJ, Ms. Dixon and Mr. Carey are sponsoring two evenings for our TJ students to demystify code and show that anybody can learn the basics and have fun at the same time!  No coding experience is necessary.  Participants will be working on FCCPS devices.  Parents will supervise and work with their child(ren).  Please bring headphones/earbuds to the event.  Families with students in multiple grades can attend both nights or elect to bring all their children on the same night regardless of their grade.

2nd and 3rd Grade:     Wednesday, December 10, 6:30pm to 7:30pm

4th and 5th Grade:  Thursday, December 11, 6:30pm to 7:30pm

Take what's yours!  The Lost and Found is between the cafeteria and gym, near the fine arts hallway.  Remember to put your student's name in jackets, sweatshirts, and lunch boxes to make it easier to identify the items.
