Whether one refers to it as "Hour of Code Week," "Computer Science Education Week," "Digital Learning Week," or some other name, it is the skill in which thousands of schools across the United States are participating this week - and all classrooms and all students at Swain East and West Elementary Schools (as well as some at Swain Middle and Swain High School) are learning age- and grade-appropriate coding (computer programming) activities. Our elementary students have been working on coding skills throughout this school year thanks in large part to Amanda Sutton and Renee Peoples.
