It was great to see all the creative ways our students, families, and staff participated in our Earth Day challenges. Thank you for supporting this endeavor by recycling, upcycling, cleaning, composting, planting and of course wearing green. Help Save Our Planet!


Continue to stay connected by celebrating Virtual Costume Week with us. Let's celebrate Halloween in April! Pull out last years costume and get one more wear out of it or create a new one. Please continue to share your student/s photos with us so we can post them in our weekly newsletter.

*WBSD CLOUD LEARNING RESCOURCES*

The website links below are continually updated throughout the week.

NETIQUTTE

When anyone engages online, it's essential that everyone behaves appropriately. West Bloomfield students and staff must comply with the Student Code of Conduct and Staff Handbook when it comes to communicating online. As a quick reminder, when you're online, be sure to:

  • Use respectful behavior and language.
  • Stick to appropriate topic discussions.
  • Send only appropriate video transmissions.
  • Use only appropriate icon, emoji, and avatar submissions.
  • Wear school appropriate clothing if you are attending meetings via video.
  • Be honest and do not plagiarize or copy others’ work -- in other words, use academic integrity.
  • Not falsify information about yourself or impersonate others online.

When everyone remembers to act kindly, show consideration for others, and treat one another online as you wish to be treated in person, we'll all be able to focus on learning.
