ASHAR offers a wide array of supplemental subjects in order to enhance our children's learning experience.
Our technology program is led by Mr. Alexander Ellingwood. Students in grades 5-8 come to the Computer Lab once a week to learn a new aspect of computer technology. Students will be working on Block Coding from Code.org. They will be using commands in block coding and linking them together to make some of their favorite cartoon characters make it through a maze or complete an obstacle. We look forward to a fun and productive year!
