In May, upper-level students working on special projects had a chance to present their work at The LEAGUE’s annual Parents’ Night. The projects ranged in topic from a website for the Del Mar Garden Club to a program to help aid in the scientific study of mice. Check out the posters below and see what some of our most advanced students have been up to!
12 Wilson Middle School students attended an intensive Introduction to Java Programming workshop the first week of their 2018 Spring Break. Graduates of the workshop will continue on with regular weekly classes when they return from their break. The students started with the basic principals of programming and were writing their own code on the first day! Big thanks to the ResMed Foundation for their sponsorship of this workshop!
December 4, 2017 is LEAGUE OF AMAZING PROGRAMMER DAY in San Diego
The LEAGUE was officially recognized by the City Council of San Diego for its achievements in teaching java programming to kids and for winning the D4SD challenge.
Big thanks to our local City Council person and champion Barbara Bry for recognizing us. Two teams of LEAGUE students along with their parents were invited to the City Council chambers last Monday to receive their own copy of the official proclamation. The LEAGUE was also represented by LEAGUE teacher Stephen Cerruti, Executive Director Vickie Barks, Director Community Relations Becky Deller, Founder Vic Wintriss, LEAGUE Board members Eric Busboon and Savi Soin.
We look forward to celebrating this AMAZING day every year on December 4th going forward!
