The “Hour of Code” was presented as a whole school Tier I enrichment opportunity hosted by the Advancing Learning Programs. This reached the entire student body, teaching the basics of coding through a variety of interactive games. Students at all three Hooksett schools had an opportunity to participate. On December 11, 2015 Governor Maggie Hassan visited Hooksett Memorial School to share in the celebration as one of the New Hampshire schools to win $10,000.00 worth of computer equipment. Mrs. Overmyer received this award which award was received due to our commitment to teach 21st century technology through “Hour of Code” that Memorial participated in for the third straight year. Several students showcased the Hour of Code coding examples for the Governor. The day came to a close with a school-wide assembly where the award was presented to the school by the Governor. During her speech, she discussed the importance of 21st century learning and STEM education for student’s future success. The children and staff really enjoyed the presentation. A special thanks to Mrs. Tina Overmyer for coordinating this outstanding week-long event for our schools.
