FBES students and staff will have an opportunity to participate in Hour of Code during Computer Science Week (December 7th-13th).  You've seen the craze for learning code. But what exactly is coding? Coding is what makes it possible for us to create computer software, apps, and websites. Your browser, your OS, the apps on your phone, Facebook, and this website -- they're all made with code.

You can choose to participate in our school Flipgrid*  to show how your student or family participating in the Hour of Code. You will need to be logged into your FCPS Google account in order to post a video.

*Please make sure to fill in our Parent Consent for Digital Resources form before participating in our Flipgrid.
