Coding Club

Sponsors: Kelley Kell

We are excited to announce that LMMS is starting a coding club!  Through the use of Scratch  (https://scratch.mit.edu/) , students can program their own interactive stories, games, and animations.  This website helps students to think creatively, reason, and work in collaboration with other students in order to create projects, solve problems, and communicate new ideas.

The club will meet in room 727 (Keel) on certain Tuesdays each month.  Please see the attached schedule.  Students will remain at LMMS after school and will need to be picked up no later than 5:30.

It would be wise to discuss with your child which email address would be best to use when creating logins.

Space is limited and membership will be granted on a first come, first served basis.  Completed permission slips are to be turned in to Mrs. Keel (room 727) as soon as possible.

We look forward to working with our wonderful LMMS Coders!
