Technology — Hour of Code

On Friday, December 12th six members of Charlotte’s Microsoft office came to UFCA to lead several grade levels in the “Hour of Code”.  This is a special effort to encourage students to begin thinking about “Technology” careers.    The students learned how to write code and then spent about an hour programming snowflakes from the recent movie “Frozen”.   A special thanks to Scott Bradley, Patrick Creehan, Lakima Spencer, Priyanka Mendiratta, James Hooks, and UFCA Parent and Microsoft Manager, Perry Robinson.    We encourage each family to let Dr. Patton know about your contacts in the community who can help us advance technology, especially this coming year as we move to electronic tablets in the high school program.

Operation Christmas Child

UFCA Students Excel in Serving!  In October UFCA High School students were invited to pack boxes for several special countries.  The students repackaged over 11,400 boxes.  Then on December 3rd, after months of collecting items for additional shoeboxes, the UFCA Big Buddies and their Little Buddies packaged over 300 boxes to take to OCC.    The week of December 8th our high school students went to the OCC Charlotte Processing Center and packaged hundreds of boxes to be shipped worldwide.  We want to thank our school families for their “Giving” spirit.  We could not do these things without you!  A special thanks to Mr. Woodall, School Chaplain and Mrs. Vought for their leadership in our serving opportunities.
