As you may have heard – Hills-Hendersonville Elementary School is a Code to the Future School! We are excited about offering this new curriculum to our students, for the 2nd year.
The 3 Rs of elementary school have been replaced with the 4 Cs – Critical Thinking, Creativity, Communicationand Collaboration. In preparing our students for THEIR future the Canon-McMillan SD has partnered with Code to the Future organization… Hills-Hendersonville is the pioneer school laying the groundwork! Let us use this chance to brag - There are no other districts that have been approved as CTTF schools in PA, WV, or OH! Very exciting 21stCentury learning is happening here!
Computer Science has changed the way we live around the world. We have self-driving cars, intricate medical surgeries, video conferencing, back up cameras, video games, the ability to buy online, and so much more, all due to computer science. The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that by 2020 there will be 1.4 million computer-science related jobs available and only 400,000 computer science graduates with the skills to apply for those jobs. Further, Information Technology (IT) workers have been estimated to earn 74 percent more than the average worker… And Hills-Hendersonville students will be prepared for these opportunities!
