Coding classes for our kids

Parents please read this.
With so many computer Eng in our community, why should our kids be behind in learning coding and wait for schools to teach.
Come on leaders, put all your head together and start these classes for our kids at a very young age in our temple.

Schools are signing up to teach computer coding, which some view as a basic skill for today, and the tech industry-backed group Code.org is pushing basic coding even for the very young.

Parents needs to make sure 
1. The kids takes the test.  (in a compassion note book in order to keep track of the test)

4. Bring them to the class only if they have taken the test.
We will turn students away if they can not show the proof that they have taken the test.
This program works only when the students come to the class after taking the test, since we focus on teaching what they do not know and not waste their time on things they know.

When you buy the book , please buy the right edition. Stores have the new edition, so you may have to buy them online.
