PRINCIPAL AND VICE PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE
Bonny Slope Families,
We wanted to spend a little time talking with you about responsible use of technology. Many of our students in upper elementary have and use cell phones. We are finding that some chat apps and texting are starting to impact the work we do in our classrooms. A student texts something about another student to friends, who shares it with more students, and it quickly expands to impact classes and grade levels.
We know it’s tricky to continuously monitor our students’ technology. In fact, apps are coming and going so fast that we sometimes cannot keep up with them. We also know how much kids are wanting to connect with each other, and will often use technology to meet that need.
We have found in the past that talking with our students about using technology responsibly, and making good decisions about how they are using it, is often a successful deterrent to issues in the future. We are planning to have more conversations with our students about this, and maybe elicit some experts in the field that could provide more guidance. However, we wanted to bring it your attention now to get conversations started.
Thanks for all of your support with this and everything you are doing for our community.
A special thanks to our BSCO Staff Appreciation committee for the yummy bundt cakes we were given on Valentine’s Day!
Janet Maza and Jim Hiller
