Code.Org's An Hour of Code at CEA
It's official! Code.org's Hour of code at Conchita Espinosa Academy has begun! Today our Middle School STEAM students did One Hour of Code with 1st grade!

The week of December 8-12, Code.org hosts their annual Hour of Code, a national challenge for kids in America to do one hour of coding during this week. Last year, our STEAM Mastery taught the 5th graders how to code as part of this project. Since our STEAM Mastery does much more than one hour of coding each week, this year they plan on teaching ALL CEA students in grades 1-8 to code, making it a school-wide challenge!! See Pictures >

We hope we don't have to do this, but if we do need to close school for an emergency, if the Miami-Dade County Schools close due to hurricane or other inclement weather, Conchita Espinosa Academy will also close. We will notify the local radio and television stations. We will reopen when the Miami-Dade County Schools open or you will be notified by a Parents Partnership Association member via our telephone tree. We will also keep you updated via our social media channels.
