Somerset County Residents asked to Respond to US Census

What is the Census? As mandated by the U.S. Constitution, the census is a once-every-decade count of everyone living in the country. When we know how many people live in your community, organizations, and businesses are better equipped to evaluate the services and programs needed, such as clinics, schools, and roads. It also determines how seats in Congress are distributed among the 50 states.
In March of 2020, the U.S. Census Bureau will send every household an invitation to complete a simple questionnaire about who lives at your address on April 1st. You will have the opportunity to respond online, by phone, or by mail, and federal law keeps those responses safe and secure.

Recently, students at PAES joined millions of other students in over 180 countries in celebration of Computer Science week, by participating in the annual "Hour of Code." Hour of Code is an opportunity for every student to try computer science activities for one hour. Coding is a skill where students take instructions (the steps in a task) and translate it into a language the computer understands, Computers communicate in a language called BINARY, using 0's and 1's. Coders write & design programming using the BINARY language. Students at PAE, participate in coding activities all year long. Click here to view pictures.
