Come to hear about all of the amazing programs at Willmore at our TK/Kindergarten Information Night on Wednesday, January 29th at 6:30 pm in the Willmore Multipurpose Room. Willmore Language Academy provides all students with the opportunity to become multilingual, multi-literate, and multicultural global citizens. Our program emphasizes and promotes the acquisition of three languages: English, Spanish and Coding. Through the partnership with Code to the Future, students have opportunities to develop their critical thinking and problem solving skills. According to the U.S Bureau of Labor Statistics, there will be a one million job gap in computer science by 2020. Our language academy prepares for 21st century learning, as well as college and career opportunities that will lead to success in a global economy by giving students the skills that the future demands. We are looking forward to seeing you on January 29th. Please see the attached flyer and contact the school at 714-895-3765 for questions or to set up a tour!
Computers are everywhere, changing every industry on the planet, but fewer than half of all schools teach computer science. Girls and minorities are severely underrepresented in computer science classes, and in the tech industry. The good news is we are on our way to change this. Willmore Elementary is committed to teaching our students how to code. Through our partnership with Code to the Future, our students create using Scratch, LEGO robotics, and Minecraft Education Edition. But this week we also had students explore and create with the tutorials found on Code.org.
Willmore hosted our first ever Career Day this month to support our vision to engage, equip, and empower all students to pursue their passions and lead in a globally diverse community.
