There are currently more than half a million open jobs in computing, and that's expected to grow at twice the rate of other jobs. That's one of the reasons why Grant Middle School STEM instructor Kristin Tope suggests that students take computer programming classes.
Grant Middle School offers sixth graders the chance to take Code.org, a free online curriculum for students of all ages. Mrs. Tope said the Code.org platform is very student-friendly, a plus for drawing in students and getting them excited about learning to code. Check out what students say about learning coding in middle school.
Marion City Schools will offer a kindergarten camp this summer to help prepare students to attend kindergarten.
The camp is geared towards students who did not attend a Marion City Schools preschool program. Students will have a chance to make new friends, have fun and get ready for kindergarten.
