Digital Citizenship and Social Media Kindness

digital citizenshipOur Health and Wellness committee has declared September Social Media Kindness Month.  Click here for some parenting tips they created on social media.  The past few weeks every student in grades 1-5 have been participating in lessons and activities in their Technology special area class to teach them about digital citizenship.  Topics covered include cyber bullying, appropriate sharing online, copyright, meeting people offline, chatting, netiquette, digital footprints, etc.  Resources from Netsmartz Kids and Digital Passport are both being used.  There are many videos on YouTube from Common Sense Education and others with great information.  Netsmartz has curriculum and information for parents, teachers, and students of all ages.  Help your kids be safer online, and offline too.

Solar Eclipse


Important Information about the Solar Eclipse

On Monday August 21st, 2017 we will experience a total solar eclipse, an event that hasn’t occurred over the U.S. mainland since 1979.  A total solar eclipse, which is when the moon completely covers the sun, will occur across 14 states in the continental U.S. along a 70-mile-wide swath of the country.  While Boone County is not located in this area, we will still be able to view the partial solar eclipse.

This event will be an extraordinary educational opportunity for our students.  Many of our schools will have special activities or lessons planned for this day to accompany the event.  While this event is extremely exciting for our students, we must also acknowledge the importance of proper eye safety.  While it should be common sense not to stare directly at the sun with your naked eyes, this advice will be even more important during this event.  The eclipse must be viewed only through proper eclipse glasses.  Schools with planned viewing activities will require students to wear proper solar eclipse glasses.

In order to protect our students’ eyes during this event:

  • Students will not participate in any unstructured outdoor activities, including recess
  • Students will be advised to not look directly at the sun without wearing solar eclipse glasses
  • We will provide additional personnel until 4pm for parents who do not want their children riding the bus during the eclipse.Children who do not ride the bus for that reason will have to be picked up by parents at 4pm.

Last Day of School
The last day for students is Wednesday, May 24th.  Have a great summer and stay safe.  Remember to keep reading all summer long.  School stops for summer, learning never should.
