Welcome to Middletown Elementary School

Keep Calm and Code!

Join Us in Celebrating
One Hour of Code

Thursday, Dec. 10 . 6pm-7pm .  at MES

We live in a world surrounded by technology. And we know that whatever field our children go into as adults, their ability to succeed depends on understanding technology. We need to know more than just how to use technology. It is critical that we learn how to program and make technology work for us. But only a tiny fraction of students are learning computer science. That’s why our school is participating in the national Hour of Code, which will be held throughout Computer Science Education Week (Dec. 7-13). Throughout the week, students will be learning, applying and playing with coding when they visit the computer labs with their teachers during the day.

We also want to make coding a fun family activity by inviting you and your children to MES on Thursday, Dec. 10 from 6 p.m. until 7 p.m. MES student technology team members and your children will guide you through different coding activities. We hope you can join us for our first MES Evening Hour of Code! Please contact Mari Lynn Stalnaker at 240-236-1181 or Brian Kilduff at 240-236-1106 for more information. Also visit for details about the national Hour of Code.
