Parents, please take a moment to mark your calendars. The following are important dates that you do not want to miss:



AP Computer Science Class Visits EA Sports

On Monday, Oct 19, a group of 14 students from the AP Computer Science class took a trip to the Electronic Arts office in Maitland, home to the very popular Madden football and Tiger Woods gold video game franchises.  The students got a look at a cutting edge video game studio and got to talk to some of the people that make the games.  They enjoyed a Q&A session in the ball pit conference room with a Madden team leader, who talked about the game industry, software engineering in general, his college experience, and what he looks for during job interviews for incoming programmers.
