The after school program at New Madrid Elementary began this week. The students who attend the program are provided additional instruction from 3:15 pm – 4:15 pm and then from 4:15 pm – 5:15 pm they work on enrichment activities. The students in 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade have the option to sign-up for Arts & Crafts, Science, or Computer Technology (Coding & Programming). New this year is the opportunity for students to work on a program called “Tynker” which introduces the students to basic computer coding and then expands to programming. By the end of these courses, the students will have a basic understanding of computer application and game development and design.
