Talk to Students about Social Media TikTok Challenge

Likely you have seen the TikTok Challenge where middle and high school students are challenged to steal or destroy items in the restrooms. Please remind your children of your expectations for school, respect, citizenship, self-discipline, and responsibility.

We are doing the same as we remind students to show high regard for people and self, to work well with others to accomplish a common goal, to actively engage in demonstrating pride and responsibility in self, school, community and country, and to demonstrate the ability to control oneself in all situations.

This year's International Day of Peace theme is "Recovering better for an equitable and sustainable world" with a focus on healing from the COVID-19 pandemic. Many activities have been shared with our teachers as support in helping our students think creatively and collectively about transforming our world to one that is equitable, more just, inclusive, sustainable, and healthier.
