February Digital Citizenship
Hello Waukesha Parents,
This month’s Digital Citizenship focus is on Intellectual Property and Fair Use. As parents, you teach your children not to take away someone else’s things; that’s called stealing. Students know that they can’t copy someone else’s homework and turn it in as their own; that’s cheating. We also need to teach our children not to take someone else’s ideas, images or information, called intellectual property, from the internet, too, without getting permission, or giving credit to the person or organization.
Thank you for discussing this topic with your students at home.

We will be showing Disney Pixars INSIDE/OUT (rated PG) It is nominated for an Academy Award as the best animated feature of the past year.

Labels for Education
Hadfield Elementary is now collecting and redeeming Labels for Education!
Through the program we can collect UPCs from participating products to earn points that can be redeemed for FREE educational merchandise!
It’s easy to help – simply save UPCs from participating products and drop them off at Hadfield Elementary (in the office or give to your child's teacher). Just look for this image on many products you already use - from Campbells to V8 Splash to Bic.
Thank you for your support. Together with the Labels for Education program – we can build a better school for our children.
