K-5 Districtwide Virtual Code Night

All Plano ISD students in kindergarten through fifth grade are invited to participate in Plano ISD’s Code Night taking place virtually on Wednesday, December 8, from 5:00-6:15 p.m. Registration is required via this form. Families who need Spanish translation should indicate so on the registration form.

Superintendent Sara Bonser will kick-off the event, which will be followed by a coding lesson provided by the Family Code Night team. The event will introduce families and their students to coding and computer science using fun puzzles and special tips.

For the evening, participants will need a charged Chromebook, laptop or PC, and Internet access. Families who need assistance obtaining Internet access should contact their school’s campus technology assistant. 

The goal of this event and the Plano ISD PK-12 Computer Science Program is to provide opportunities for students to learn to code in every grade level. Families can learn more about opportunities offered in the district at www.pisd.edu/computerscience. District science coordinators are currently writing a curriculum for K-5 elementary computer science that will allow students to engage with coding learning opportunities during the school day. 

Questions should be directed to Dan Blier, Plano ISD computer science curriculum specialist. An event flyer is available in English and Spanish.
