Digital Citizenship Classes

Hello Everyone,

As our campus continues to meet the goals to become a Digitally Certified Campus through Common Sense Media, we will begin round two of our lessons next week. The schedule for next Thursday, and the following two Thursdays is shown below. I want to thank each of you for allowing Melissa Pittillo and I this time with your students. Each student will receive a Family Tip Sheet at the end of the lesson. If you would please remind them to take this home, I would appreciate it, as it part of the requirement we must fulfill.

** Please note that the library will be closed from 11:30 -12:30 each day while Jen is in the cafeteria, and eating lunch.
