 Hour of Code Each December 

Learn more about the Hour of Code

What is the Hour of Code?
The Hour of Code makes computer programming accessible to everyone through fun, quick lessons. You don’t need any prior coding experience to facilitate these activities—you can learn along with your students.

Check out our Hour of Code lessons:

  • Drawing with code: Students learn to program using JavaScript, one of the world's most popular programming languages. (Ages 8+)
  • Creating webpages: Students make their own webpages using the basics of HTML and CSS. (Ages 10+)
  • Creating SQL databases: Students learn the fundamentals of databases using SQL to create data tables and query data. (Ages 12+)
During the 5 days Hour of Code is featured every December in the library.  Last year 139 students gave it a try. Most were first timers with no experience coding, but most said they liked it enough to continue on their own. Among the 7th and 8th grade coders, half participated in HOC the previous year.
 "Why play someone else's game when you can create your own?" is our coding motto.

Casey Book Fair at Barnes & Noble

Thursday Dec. 12 4:30-7:30 p.m.

Casey choir, band, and orchestra students will perform at Barnes & Noble on Pearl Street. In year's past, the support has been overwhelming. Last year Casey made over $2,000 in purchases both in the store and at the online book fair. Depending on the amount earned this year, we'll be able to use a portion to add new books to the Casey library. Casey performers and their teachers  Kelly Carmichael (choir),  Molly Evans (orchestra), and Kati Sainz (band) will be out in force Thursday. Won't you join us?
