The Casey Library is dedicated to providing equitable access to materials students and teachers require from a 21st Century library staffed by a teacher-librarian commited  to creating a culture that encourages lifelong learning and a community of responsible digital citizens.

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 was featured during lunches in the Casey library in December 2016, 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: Join us on Dec. 22!

Once again, Casey choir, band, and orchestra students will perform at Barnes & Noble on Pearl Street to the overwhelming support of book store patrons.  Supporters at the store made over $2,000 in purchase 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), Molly Evans (orchestra), and Kati Sainz (band) for their incredible support for the third year! Checkout pictures taken during the 2016 event!

It all starts with ordering a yummy Cheesecake Factory specialty item. Print out your order form and ask your student to drop it off with your payment in the library or office. Thanks!
