Celebrate the end of Computer Science Education Week by wearing a plaid shirt on Friday, December 11.
What does wearing a Plaid Shirt have to do with Coding? 
Nothing really. It is just a silly way to poke fun at Mr Hollis, the computer teacher, who wears plaid shirts almost everyday of the year.
A $1 donation towards new Chromebooks at Meredith is optional.
