Hour of Code!

Dear Parents,

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 depend on understanding how technology works.

That’s why we are joining in on the largest learning event in history: The Hour of Code, during Computer Science Education Week (December 4-10).

Our Hour of Code is making a statement that Woodson is ready to teach these foundational 21st century skills.
