You may ask, “What is a Hackathon,” well “a hackathon is an event, usually hosted by a tech company or organization (our school), where programmers (or learners in our case) get together for a short period of time to collaborate on a project or solve a problem through programming.  Hackathons are a lot of fun and are a great learning experience.  If you wish for your child to attend, please return the consent form to me, Ms. Elfers in Room 301.  If I am not in my room, your child may slip it under my door or you may place it in my Mailbox in the main office.
