All you need to pay with an E-check is your bank routing number and bank account number. We strongly suggest you consider setting this up ahead of time with a small donation to the PTSA or something else on our site so it's ready to go when registration opens.

Little Coders


Get them started early! Our Little Coders class offers young children the perfect opportunity to develop their computational thinking skills, create their first programs, and have a blast with their friends! Our curriculum is tailored specifically for early readers and takes into consideration their cognitive abilities and attention span, typically found in children aged 5-7. We utilize age-appropriate online tools, including Lightbot, Kodable, and Scratch, to introduce fundamental coding skills.


Beginner students learn essential coding concepts such as Loops and Conditions. Through practice, they apply these concepts to build simple projects, including games, stories, and even animated characters. Returning and experienced students encounter new challenges that will allow them to push their coding knowledge to the next level.
