Fill out those 2016-17 Codesmyths applications!
We had a great Codesmyths Kickoff Event yesterday — 86 students came to the library!! Sadly, we only have room for 10-12 new students this year, so get those forms filled out and submitted by next week on Thursday (October 6, by the end of the day — applications received on Friday or later will not be considered)! Remember to use your best writing skills — spelling, punctuation, complete sentences, and clear thoughts all count.
If you missed the kick-off event today, you can still apply. The applications instructions and form can be found here: www.codesmyths.org/home/signing-up (you can also navigate to this by clicking "Signing Up" on the left side of the www.codesmyths.org web site — hint: look at the left side now :-).
Thank you very much. Looking forward to seeing all the old and new students alike!— Ms. Bertucci, Mr. Roland, Ms. Tagliamonte
