PCSD Participates in the International Hour of Code

The Pittsford Central School District participated in the world-wide Hour of Code program that ran during Computer Science Education Week. Classes around the district, in grades 1-12, spent an hour during the week introducing students to coding and computer science through a series of online tutorials on the Hour of Code website.

The Hour of Code is organized by www.code.org, a non-profit dedicated to expanding participation in computer science by making it available in more schools and increasing participation by women and underrepresented students of color. The Hour of Code is also supported by an unprecedented coalition of partners, including Microsoft, Apple, Amazon, Boys and Girls Clubs of America, and the College Board, along with many computer science and entertainment moguls, including Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg, who are among those who help fund it.

    Pittsford Central School District - Treats for Troops Pittsford Pride Surprise

    The Mendon High School Diversity Club partnered with Harris Corporation this past fall for their annual Treats for Troops candy drive. The club collected over 500 pounds of candy (up from 2014’s 60 pounds) to send to current service members and veterans.

    Katie Thoma, a junior at Mendon High School and member of the diversity club, helped orchestrate the candy drive and received an individual certificate of appreciation from Harris. Her father, a senior manager at Harris, picked her up from school in his full military uniform and a military Humvee to take her to Harris to receive her certificate.

    Congratulations to the Mendon High School Diversity Club and to Katie!
