Information about 8th grade coding classes (Sign-up NOW!!)

Seventh graders – NOW is the time to sign-up for 8th grade elective classes.

There are three options for students who want to learn about coding (programming).

  • Elective Wheel – Introduction to Programming (Semester Course) – By signing-up for the 8th grade elective wheel you may possibly be in this class next year, but it is not guaranteed.  This course covers an introduction to various programming languages, web development, and video game development with an emphasis on business and customer service.
  • Computer Science Discoveries (All Year) – This course is an all year course for students who show an interest in learning about coding web pages, animations, games, and apps.  Students must sign-up with Mrs. Graham and indicate their choice on the course selection sheet the counselor provides.  See the link to the video below.
  • Computer/Yearbook Aide & Introduction to Programming (All Year) –  Students must sign-up with Mrs. Graham.  There are only a few spots for this position.  Student history and prior performance at OMMS will be reviewed before being accepted to this important position.  Students must be trustworthy, reliable, and willing to work independently on coding assignments.  This is not a study hall.  Students will basically be a yearbook and computer aide for the first semester and do Introduction to Programming curriculum the second semester.  Students accepted to this position will be on the yearbook staff as well.
