Coding Camp
Class of 2021 member Ashutosh Chakrigiri spent his summer working to teach web design and coding with a group called Code Up. Code Up was created to give students the opportunity to learn how to code for free,virtually. According to Ashutosh "coding is a superpower" and thus, Code Up allows students to learn how to code while having fun. The summer camps were designed with informative lessons, hands on coding practices, and projects based on real world scenarios.

RETREAT - August 15 - CHANGE OF DATE
Our first program date will be held at Odyssey Escape Games on August 15th rather than August 8th in order to reflect the new Fulton County Schools opening date. I am in the process of scheduling the groups. Remember all program dates are mandatory, this particular day will only last about 2 hours - you will receive your time slot in July.

Please make sure you change this date on your calendar. School Sponsors, Principals and our LJC Board are welcome to attend - just let me know if you'd like to jump into a game!

We have ordered SLJC masks and all employees at the facility will be wearing masks. You will all receive a bag of your SLJC supplies for the program year - it is very important that you attend so we are all on the same page as we move into the 2020-21 program year! If you have a time constraint on that day (band, football, etc.) or you feel uncomfortable attending please let me know ASAP so we can make alternate plans to get your SLJC bag to you. Also if you have participated in a game at Odyssey Escape Games, please let me know ASAP. email Mrs. Sanders.
Discovery Circle Big Hit in Johns Creek
Aesha Shah, class of 2022, started Discovery Circle and with the help of many of our Student Leadership Johns Creek students, was recently spotlighted in the Gwinnett Daily Post for their efforts! We are so proud of all our student leaders who have spent their summer giving back to their community. Way to go!

BOOK DRIVE = BIG SUCCESS
Great job! Niyomi Shah and Samay Shah have received hundreds of children books and test prep books that will be donated through the  Northview High School (Georgia)  Interact Club to less fortunate students in the area. These two have worked hard all summer to give back to their community in many ways. Proud of you both.
