Students have been preparing their events during class and at home to be ready for their performance. The schedule will be posted by each teacher the week of the festival.

Please arrive 30 minutes before the scheduled performance time to check in, warm-up and get ready to perform. Once their individual clinic is done, they are welcome to leave.

Thank you for helping us serve over 600 families for our Holiday Store and pantry in December. As the new year arrives, many of us think of organizing and cleaning up from the Holidays to start fresh in the new year. For this reason this month we are collecting household cleaning products that we can have available at pantry.


Please feel free to send donations in a plastic bag with your students to put in the collections bins/carts near the main office of school. Items can also be dropped off during school hours. The Giving Tree appreciates your continued support.

PLEASE JOIN US!

DIGI KNOW ... 30 Seconds to Informed Decisions about Media

As students in middle school begin to connect with each other online and explore topics on apps like TikTok and Instagram, as well as seek out more video games, movies, podcasts, and other media, (and there are always new trends, "must-watch" series and apps being created!) it becomes really challenging to navigate it all and know what's appropriate and safe, and what is not.


  • Common Sense Media is a fantastic resource that provides constantly updated information on the latest digital media trends, series, apps, etc. If for example, you hear of a new app that sounds fun, how do you know if it's safe or appropriate?
  • Common Sense Media provides an age rating, provides a thorough description of what the app does, and breaks down any potential concerns in a "Parents Need to Know" section.


Access to this information is helpful in making decisions about what media you want to bring onto your device and into your life. In about 30 seconds, from the Common Sense Media homepage, you can simply type in the search what you want to look up and scan a nice one-pager that gives you the background information you need to begin to make an informed decision.


One caveat on using the search on the site is that each browser gets three free reviews. To conduct more reviews, open the website in a new browser or reach out to Kelly Koller, Technology Integration Specialist at Bay View at kellkoll@hssdschools.org
