The Warrior Way

April 2023

Marching into Spring

The month of March flew by and we cannot believe that we are entering our final marking period of the school year! Students have had many opportunities the past several weeks to learn and grow both academically and socially. We are also proud of the many community events that have taken place! From Read Across America Week, the kick off of spring sports and the production of The Little Mermaid, March was filled with a plethora of excitement!

Read Across America

Read Across America took place during the first week of March. Students not only enjoyed celebrating the love of reading, but also getting to dress up for a variety of theme days! Thank you to Ms. Daddato for organizing all of our events including an author visit and character parade!

School #3 Semi-Formal

Middle school students dressed up and danced the night away at the 2023 Semi-Formal! Delicious food was eaten, great music was danced to, and amazing memories were made!

Lunch with the Principals

Lunch with the Principals continues to be a very popular event each month with our students in School #2 and School #3!

Social Media Tips for Parents

  1. Monitor social media use: Parents should be aware of the social media platforms their children use, the content they post, and the people they interact with. Regularly monitor your child's social media activity to ensure they are staying safe online.

  2. Set privacy settings: Encourage your child to set their social media profiles to private, so only people they know and trust can view their content. Make sure your child understands the importance of not sharing personal information like their phone number or home address on social media.

  3. Talk about online bullying: Online bullying is a real and serious issue. Talk to your child about how to recognize and report any incidents of bullying or harassment online.

  4. Encourage healthy habits: Social media can be addictive, and it's important to encourage your child to have a healthy relationship with it. Set limits on screen time and encourage your child to take breaks and participate in other activities.

  5. Educate your child on the risks of oversharing: Help your child understand that posting too much personal information or inappropriate content can have serious consequences, such as cyberbullying or even jeopardizing future job prospects.

  6. Teach them about the dangers of online predators: Make sure your child knows not to engage with strangers online and to tell you immediately if they are approached by someone they don't know.

  7. Be a good role model: Set a good example for your child by being responsible and mindful of your own social media use. Remember, your child is always watching and learning from your actions.

Principals' Message

As we welcome the spring season, we wanted to express our gratitude for your continued support throughout this school year.

As we dive into the spring season, our schools are buzzing with activity! Our students are eagerly preparing for upcoming events such as our Green and Gold Day, Clash of the Classes, and other end-of-year celebrations. We are also thrilled to announce that our district will be hosting our 2nd Annual Spring Community Night, complete with our art show, student concerts, student work displays, food, and prizes for all to enjoy!

As always, we encourage you to stay involved in your child's education and to reach out to us if you have any questions or concerns. Together, we can make this a successful and memorable spring season for all of our students!
