Frog Pond School Newsletter 6/2018
Volume 17-18 Issue 9
Greetings Frog Pond Families,
June. How is it possible that the school year will be coming to a close in a few short weeks? It is always with mixed emotions that I meet the end of a school year. Another group of 6th graders ready to move to Jr. High. Students saying goodbye to classmates, friends and teachers. A little sadness mingled with the excitement of summer fun ahead. But with each ending, there is a new beginning. This year in particular is a little different. We will be saying goodbye to our younger students as grades K-2 will be starting at the George J. Mitchell School in the fall. Not really goodbye, more like see you later. We know they’ll be back in a few years, a little older and alot smarter. We will ready our school to welcome incoming grade 4-6 students from George J. Mitchell as well as our temporary 7th grade guests. The promise of new friends and new experiences await them.
I plan to walk the halls a little more than usual these last few weeks. Take in the sights, sounds and students passing in hall. I’ll try to slow the days down just a little because like the students, I feel a little sadness mingled with the excitement of summer.
As always, thank you for sharing your children with us. Have a happy, healthy and safe summer!

FROG POND ELEMENTARY SCHOOL GOOD EGGS!!!
A NJ School just got hit with a ransomware attack. In a recent report, 30% of phishing emails are opened causing some 90% of all attacks. What is Phishing?
Phishing scams are typically fraudulent email messages appearing to come from legitimate enterprises (e.g., your district, your internet service provider, a vendor, your bank). These messages usually direct you to a spoofed (fake, but real looking) website or otherwise get you to divulge private information (e.g., passphrase, account numbers, or other account updates). The perpetrators then use this private information to commit identity theft or to get access to your system and hold district files hostage often asking for a large payment to grant access back to your files.
One type of phishing attempt is an email message stating that you are receiving it due to fraudulent activity on your account, and asking you to "click here" to verify your information.
Please keep an eye out for messages, websites, and forms asking you to enter these details. Double check the email address and web address for such requests. If in doubt, forward any emails to the Tech Team for review.

The super popular Pokemon is a fan favorite!
Grades 5-6 Students
In Mrs. Sailer's science class, the northern bobwhite quail are 8 days old today (5/16/18). Currently we have 37 chicks walking, running, and hopping in our brood pen. Students have observed that some of the down on their wings has been replaced with flight feathers. The chicks have also started stretching their wings. We can't wait until they start to fly at 14-16 days old!
