Dear HRMS Families,
This edition of the HRMS News contains information on Common Sense Media, TIK TOK, HRCSD’s Social Emotional Learning Curriculum Adoption, National Suicide Prevention Month, and the Principal’s Chat.
Common Sense Media
I love Common Sense Media. We used this website when our children were younger prior to viewing movies or other media. Common Sense Media is so much more than just movie reviews. It contains information on video games, books, websites, and parenting resources. Please check out the Parents Need To Know section and pass this along to other families!
We are continuing to struggle with students viewing “Tik Tok Challenges” and then repeating them at school. Many involve vandalism or harassment. I recommend that families seriously consider deleting this app from your children’s phones. Have you wondered what Tik Tok is all about? Please check out https://www.commonsensemedia.org/blog/parents-ultimate-guide-to-tiktok for a short video about this social media app.
Please let me know if you have any questions, concerns, or words of praise for the people or programs of Hood River Middle School. Thank you and have a great day.
Excellence. Every student. Every day.
