Coding Club     

Code is a set of instructions (or rules) that computers can understand; it might be helpful to think of code as a recipe. People write code, code powers computers and computers power many everyday objects like phones, watches, microwaves and cars.

Learning coding empowers students to do many things they wouldn’t otherwise be able to do. These things include hand-crafting their own websites, becoming a career coder or even starting a technology business. Most importantly, they’ll be able to understand the technology shaping your world. The club uses an online program called code.org to understand how coding works and learn to program robots to perform certain functions. This club is for 4th and 5th grade students.

Helen Ruffin Reading Bowl      Several years ago, Mrs. Helen Ruffin, a library media specialist in DeKalb County, wanted to find a way to use the nominee books from the Georgia Children’s Book Awards to encourage her students to read. She therefore created a unique reading competition in game format, called the Reading Bowl, using the award nominees. Her vision was to have teams comprised of students from different schools compete to test their knowledge of the selected books.

Today, the Georgia Helen Ruffin Reading Bowl is open to students in grades four through twelve across the state. The winning teams from the Divisional Bowls meet at the Annual Conference on Children’s Literature in March for the State Championship of the Georgia Helen Ruffin Reading Bowl.
