Marion Street, Waverly Park and West End elementary school students celebrated Computer Science Education Week from Dec. 7-11 with engaging Hour of Code activities during their library classes.

Led by elementary school librarians Meghan Ceglie, Marie Sarro-Pizarro and Heather LaBarbera, students learned the basic concepts of computer programming and its importance in everyday life. They then applied their knowledge by completing coding challenges in which the tasks became more rigorous as the levels were completed. Students were able to own their learning by choosing from a choice board to allow for a variety of interactive programs and formats to be explored. It was a fun-filled week full of new and exciting learning opportunities for the students.
