Our Scratch Day will be held on March 12th, 2014 and will take place at Bev Facey Community High School. The event is designed for junior high students, but it open to all grades pending approval.

If possible, please bring your own laptop. We will have power bars for charging throughout the day. Some laptops will be available for student use.
