This week, our SAS students along with millions of students across the world will participate in ‘The Hour of Code’. The Hour of Code is a website and global movement by Computer Education Week and Code.org that encourages students to learn Computer Science. The initiative is supported by partnerships with leading technology companies and corporate sponsors. The website introduces students to basic programming by allowing them to participate in a variety of 1-hour coding activities. Students receive a certificate after completing each of the activities.

New Series: Education Matters
The Center for Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships at the U.S. Department of Education has created a new series called “Education Matters,” a monthly bulletin, in which they will share with parents, students, educators, faith-based and community representatives, and others key information and issues around education. The information shared will contribute to creating a culture of education excellence in the various communities.
The first “Education Matters” bulletin, Children’s Brain Development, can also be accessed on their website under the Resource tab at http://www.ed.gov/edblogs/

The mission of the Center for Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships at the U.S. Department of Education is to promote student achievement by connecting schools and community-based organizations, both secular and faith‐based.
