The Alabama Consortium for a Technology in Education (ACTE) held its annual Team Programming Challenge on March 2.  Participants were students in grade 5-12 from all over Alabama.  The competition was divided into 4 levels of competition.  Students competed for three hours using their coding skills to answer questions.  Students could select from 4 coding languages: C99, C++11, Java or Python3.  Mrs. Besherse has found Python to be an easier transition from the Block-based coding she uses to teach beginning coding in class, so Python is her choice to introduce text-based coding.

The Jones Valley Cubs took 1st place in the State of Alabama with a cash prize of $200.00!

Congratulations to Aiden Smith, 6th grade, Reid Geohagan, 6th grade, and Sawyer DeBolt, 5th grade.

Thank You Mrs. Stacey Besherse and her students for a job well done!
