Grandparents Day Alert

We look forward to meeting grandparents and special friends on Friday, September 12th! There are no official classes, just mass, a tour and donuts! If your 7th grader is not bringing a special someone, they will stay with their advisor for the morning. Dismissal is at 11am.

Because you probably don't know what #OOTD means.....

This week, 7th grade students are sitting down with Dr. Pannell to discuss making good choices on social media. As you know, this is an important conversation that needs to happen at school and at home. It can be difficult to keep up with our kids and the ever-changing internet!

Below is a compilation of resources and articles from Common Sense Media for parents that will help facilitate productive conversations with teenagers regarding social media.

(So you feel in the know: #OOTD stands for Outfit Of The Day)
