Annunciation Catholic Academy is committed to the integration of technology throughout the educational process. All grade levels utilize computers on a daily basis as part of their basic instruction. Each classroom has a minimum of five networked computers with Internet access, an interactive whiteboard, projector, television, and an overhead sound system. Additionally, mobile sets of netbooks and iPads are utilized by students. Technology is also evident in the IDEA Hub, the math lab, the computer and language learning lab, and the Maker Space, an area dedicated to STREAM (Science, Technology, Religion, Engineering, Art, & Math).

Hour of Code

We live in a world surrounded by technology. And we know that whatever field our students choose to go into as adults, their ability to succeed will increasingly hinge on understanding how technology works. But only a tiny fraction of us are learning computer science, and fewer students are studying it than a decade ago.

That’s why our entire school joined in on the largest learning event in history: The Hour of Code, during Computer Science Education Week (December 8-14, 2014). In 2013, 15 million students tried computer science in one week. This year, we joined students worldwide to reach over 100 million students!

We are excited that students in PreK-4 through eighth grade at Annunciation Catholic Academy and Pre-School, and their teachers, participated in The Hour of Code. To continue bringing programming activities to your children or to involve the rest of the members of your family in The Hour of Code, visit http://hourofcode.com/us for details.
