Video Games and Children: Playing with Violence
Tips for Parents
Parents can help their children enjoy these video games appropriately and avoid problems by:
- Avoiding video games in preschool-aged children
- Checking the ESRB ratings to select appropriate games—both in content and level of development
- Playing video games with their children to share the experience and discuss the game’s content
- Setting clear rules about game content and playing time, both in and outside the home
- Monitoring online interactions and warning children about potential dangers of Internet contacts while playing games online
- Allowing video game playing only in public areas of the home, not in the child’s bedroom
- Remembering that you are a role model for your children including which video games you play and how long you play them
- Enforcing total screen time limits
- Ensuring video games are only played after homework and chores are done
- Encouraging participation in other activities, particularly physical activities

Banana Splits Group
As part of our educational curriculum at Cadott Elementary, any student in grades K-6 may participate in small guidance groups. “Banana Splits” groups will be starting the week of October 28. These groups, each made up of about eight students, will meet once a week during a lunch, recess, or teacher approved time. The groups will run six to eight weeks.
The purpose of “Banana Splits” is to provide a nonjudgmental atmosphere for kids to explore positive ways of coping with change. Mrs. Manier, our school counselor, will be facilitating these groups.
If you are interested in having your child participate in “Banana Splits,” please complete and return the attached form to your child’s teacher, or email the form to email@example.com. -
Veteran's Day Program
Hello Hornet Families!
I am excited to present a great opportunity for us as a school to honor our veterans! The elementary school will be singing a song for the Veteran’s Day program on Monday, November 11th at 10:00 in the high school gym. We have been working very hard and are thankful that we can present a gift of music as a small way to say thank you to those who have served. We will again add a personal part to our performance by having each student hold on to a picture or name card of one or more veterans in their life.
I have saved the pictures and cards from last year to use again - so if your child sent one to me last year, you do not need to send it in again. If you would like to add additional pictures or names, that would be fine too!
If they did not send in a name or picture of a veteran, we would like each student to send a picture (it can be a photocopy of a picture too) or the name of a veteran that is a family member or family friend to school with your child to deliver to Mrs. Grossinger in the music room. We will make cards in class with the veterans’ names or pictures on them. If you would like to email the picture or name to me - please include your child’s name and classroom teacher so I know which child to connect it to. My email is: firstname.lastname@example.org. You may send in more than one name or picture.
If you are unable to send a name or picture in, we will give your child the name of one of our Cadott staff veterans to place on their card.
We hope this will be a personal way each child can connect with our Veteran’s Day program. We are so grateful for their unselfish service to us and to our country!
Thank you for your support!
