Jamison D. '19: Instructor for Girls Tech Together Program

Girls Tech Together, an interactive coding program aimed at exposing elementary school girls to computer science fundamentals. Through the course, students learn concepts such as functions, loops, conditional statements, algorithms, and more through activities, coding lessons, and interaction with professionals in the CS field.  At the end of the course, students will complete a capstone project as a summation of what they have learned.

The course will be taught by Jamison DeLaine (SAES '19) who now attends MOT Charter High School and mentors for Girls Tech.

Here are 2 projects that current SAES students made in the  program:

Sandhya's: https://studio.code.org/projects/spritelab/x0rkAabUMxaJy_mYihhlr1wNSXY8UkkgTtcw7sTFlU0/edit

The goal of Sandhya's project is to avoid the lightning bolt and touch the balls. If you touch the lightning bolt, then game over.

Olanna's: https://studio.code.org/projects/spritelab/XFISMRkdKQm5Bkp2ovCwOi64MpS4qUrFQYQsf-QWF18

The goal of Olanna's project is to use the arrow keys to move the dart to the bullseye without touching aliens. If you touch the aliens, then game over. The aliens also grow a lot overtime.

Dominic L. '21:

Home Run Derby Winner

We are #HeronProud of our recent alumni Dominic Liguori ‘21 who recently won the Home Run Derby at a huge baseball tournament featuring 32 teams. Dominic showed his Heron pride, determination and perseverance when he achieved his goal of winning this home run derby- a goal that he had set for himself long ago.

Julianna S. '22:

All State Chorus Participant 

We recognize Julianna as she represents St. Anne’s in the Delaware Jr. All State chorus. This outstanding achievement is granted to a select group of students who go above and beyond what is expected in the classroom. On top of managing coursework, extracurricular activities, and participation in local performances Julianna dedicated much of her time and energy to learning advanced repertoire and completing a rigorous audition process. As an avid musician these skills will serve her well throughout her career.
