Internet and Social Media Safety - "What will they text next?"

Becky Fescina, the Community and Education Specialist at Alliance Health, came to speak with us on Thursday, February 27, about Internet and Social Media Safety. To say that it was eye opening is an understatement. She shared a presentation with us, a couple of videos and some great handouts. IT IS NOT TOO EARLY TO INFORM OURSELVES AS WE CONSIDER THE SAFETY OF OUR CHILDREN. Please take time to look through the presentation, watch the videos, and sit down and talk with your children about their online lives. The videos are graphic and can be disturbing so please make sure children are not present while watching them.

PENNY WARS

We have also been collecting money to help the animals in Australia that are suffering from the brush fires. Our students are doing a great job and have already raised over $1000.00. We are competing by house with pennies and paper money equaling positive points and silver change equaling negative points. The competition will continue through Wednesday, March 3, 2020. Check out the current leaderboard!
