Hour of Code

Today, as a school, we participated in Hour of Code which is an international endeavor to get more kids computer literate and potentially lead them into the exciting field of Computer Science. Every Keheley student got the chance to work on their computer coding skills!

  • Are you collecting "pop tabs" to help families staying in Atlanta area Ronald McDonald Houses? You just need to remove the tabs from soda (and other) cans and save them in a plastic bag to bring to Keheley. By doing this, we are helping families with very sick children and helping our environment at the same time! (Don't forget to recycle the rest of the can!)
