Bring Your Special Person to Widener Day

On Wednesday, April 25, WMS, held “Bring Your Special Person Day”. 30 special persons attended the event who accompanied their child throughout the set agenda
The special person enjoyed songs sung by our students, a planting activity that was a takeaway and a nice lunch. The students in attendance were absolutely thrilled partaking in all of the activities. That day’s activity truly defined the meaning of Widener Pride!

Widener students take on technology with ‘Hour of Code’

 

 

 

 

 

 

Widener high school students participated in the “Hour of Code” as part of Computer Science Education Week.  The “Hour of Code” is a global movement offering children of all ages across the world the opportunity to experience computer programming. The activity is designed to demystify code and show that anyone can learn it.  Students participated in block coding activities, which were provided by Code.org, Scratch, and Tynker. The “Hour of Code” provided an opportunity to apply their knowledge and enhance their understanding of computer science.  Coding, incorporates all school subjects, encourages critical thinking, engages unengaged students to be innovative and inventive and the best of all it’s fun!
