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:
- 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
Casey choir, band, and orchestra students perform annually at Barnes & Noble on Pearl Street to the overwhelming support of book store patrons. Supporters at the store this year 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. Thanks to all the amazingly talented Casey performers, their parents and siblings, and especially to teachers Mary Bateman (choir), Kelsey Reeve (orchestra), and Kati Sainz (band) for their incredible support for the fourth year!
