Welcome to Mission Monday, a series of posts highlighting the ways North Salem students embrace the district mission of engaging in continual improvement, including questioning, defining and solving problems through critical and creative thinking.

During Pequenakonck Elementary School’s Hour of Code celebration, kindergarten and first-grade students learned how to code in the Library Media Center.

Activities during the Hour of Code included students taking turns to code their “blue fuzz” to solve the problem of going through a maze, using creative and critical thinking to debug programs, and using block coding to help characters collect candy.

Through the activities, students used communication and collaboration to successfully complete tasks. They learned one is never too young or too old to learn to code and to be continuously improving learners.
