Student Project Spotlight - Spanish Celebrations Infographic
This month's spotlight comes from Spanish 2 Honors Class. Students in this class researched a celebration in a Spanish speaking country and created an infographic to narrate what they did as if they were attending the festivities. They used Chromebooks and a web-based program taught by a technology integration specialist. In addition, students learned how to more effectively use Google's image search tools to find appropriate images whose copyright license allowed them to be used for the project.

Digital Citizenship Tip: Usernames and Passwords
When creating a new account for any online services, take the following into consideration:
- Your username should not identify your location, gender, or name. Instead, have it use your favorite fictional character or sports team with a number.
- Create and use passphrases instead of passwords. For example, “Tom Brady is the best!” is a strong, easy to remember passphrase with multiple capital letters and special characters. If spaces aren't allowed, then just remove them or replace them with underscores "_".
- Add the website’s name into your passphrase to make them even stronger. To continue our previous example, let’s say we use “Tom Brady is the best!” for our twitter account. In order to make it unique to twitter, we can say “Tom Brady is the best twitter!” or “TomBradyisthebest!tr”.

The event is an opportunity for parents to see and experience first hand the many positive ways in which students are engaging in innovative teaching and learning practices here at the high school. This includes courses, projects, and initiatives in the realms of both interdisciplinary learning and technology, both of which are increasingly important to a 21st Century Education and to our own school’s growth.
