Responsible Use of Social Media
Did you know that if you delete a Tweet, it is still kept on file somewhere? How about your text messages? Clicking "Delete" doesn't mean they disappear forever.
We all need to remember that social media is a reflection of who we are as individuals - it's our digital footprint. Do you know what your digital footprint looks like?
Take a moment and pause before you post to ask yourself these questions:
- Is what I am posting a true reflection of who I really am?
- How will my post impact others?
- How will my post affect the way others perceive me?
- How might this post affect my future (scholarships, career opportunities, etc.)?
Most social media usage is harmless and can be a great way to share opinions and keep up with friends and family. However, we all have to remember that some opinions can be harmful to ourselves or to others. If that's the case, you have to ask yourself: is it really worth sharing?
Remember: we all have the freedom of speech based on the First Amendment in the Bill of Rights; but, our rights only exist insofar as they do not impede upon the rights and safety of others.
Pause before you post, and use social media responsibly.
State Testing Update
We now have a brief reprieve from standardized testing, and can resume class as normal for a short time.
On the horizon are the end-of-year assessments for PARCC and AIR, which will begin on Monday, April 20.
