Ranger Good Works presents Hour of Code 2019 — We are preparing for Computer Science Education Week December 9th – 15th and plan to create a fan-tas-tech event for 2019!
VOLUNTEERS Needed at Dillard Elementary School Friday, December 13, 2019
If you or your team is a technologist or just interested in volunteering your time for this event click on the Volunteer button on the rangergoodworks.org website and sign up to be a part of this exciting event for the students of Dillard Elementary. This is a community partner initiative!
Once again, Ranger Technical Resources & Ranger Good Works are recruiting friends and community partners to help educate over 900 students from Dillard Elementary School about the importance of Computer Science. We love it when our kids receive the three T’s….time, talent and treasure.
Please join our Hour of Code volunteer team this year. The kids love to see familiar faces. If you can’t join us, tell a friend who you think can.
The Hour of Code will take place at Dillard Elementary on Friday, December 13, 2019.
- Responsibilities include: review coding assignment prior to the Hour of Code at Dillard Elementary. The coding assignment will be sent to you upon registration
- Show up on-site one hour prior to the Hour of Code initiative
- Participate in classrooms with instruction or help in the classrooms
- Work with our coordinators and the teachers from Dillard Elementary to create a successful event

This experience will continue to fill the student’s treasure chest full of great life experiences. In 2013 we first partnered with Code.org for the Official Hour of Code, a Global Computer Science Education Week initiative to encourage youth to learn basic coding. Over 49 million students around the world participated. As a technology solutions company Ranger Technical Resources contributed by sending mentors to local schools and sponsored an Hour of Code at our corporate office for 40 students.
In 2014 we expanded. Eight hundred students from Dillard Elementary participated in a Computer Science related activity. As you can see, the number of students we are teaching has increased due to our enthusiastic community’s involvement. Year by year we enjoy meeting the school’s academic challenges.
In 2019 we will have close to 1000 students enrolled at Dillard Elementary School. We need all of the helping hands we can to keep up the great momentum. Please join our volunteer team for the Hour of Code on Thursday, December 10th.

What is the Hour of Code?
A one-hour introduction to computer science.
The Hour of Code began as a one-hour coding challenge to give students a fun first
introduction to computer science and has become a global learning event, celebration,
and awareness event.
An annual global event. The Hour of Code takes place every year during Computer
Science Education Week, the first weeks in December. With a huge groundswell of support
and attention, it’s an ideal time for schools and districts to put the spotlight on computer
science programs and expand opportunities.” Code.org
