Digital Citizenship March
Parents, this month’s Digital Citizenship focus is cyberbullying. Cyberbullying is using an electronic device and the internet to post or text unkind messages, embarrassing photos or unkind rumors about someone else, with the intention of humiliating them or harassing them.
Children who are bullied, either online or in person are more likely to have low self-esteem, be unhappy at school and skip school, have more physical health problems and be more likely to use alcohol and drugs. So, it is important that we as parents and educators, address this problem.
Parents, pay attention to how your child uses the internet. Ask them to show you the social media websites they use. Make sure they know that they should never respond to, or forward or repost a cyberbullying message; they should show you any unkind texts or messages, so that you can help them block that user, or stop using that site. Read more about cyberbullying at: Common Sense Media: https://www.commonsensemedia.org/video/advice/cyberbullying.
Thank you for taking time to discuss this with your students.

Classroom Spotlight - 4th Grade
Thanks to all the parents that came to our student led conferences. We hope you found them valuable. It is important for students to take ownership for their learning and leading the conference was a vital part of that process. The goal setting that happened at the conference is also a way for students to monitor their learning. Please continue to view your child’s continuum in literacy and numeracy and have conversations about their progress at home.
