Internet Safety/Bullying Prevention

posted Mar 22, 2017, 10:54 AM by Jill Brunkan   [ updated Mar 22, 2017, 10:54 AM ]

Ed White students have been learning about the importance of using respect and empathy to prevent bullying. Children in grades K-6 have been reviewing what bullying is and isn’t and have practiced strategies to solve problems and to stop bullying. Our intermediate students in grades 4-6 are also learning about cyber bullying and keeping safe online. Officer Hank Jacobsen talked with 6th grade students about cyber bullying and the appropriate use of social media. He also informed students of the consequences of inappropriate use.

Trooper Dan Loussaert presented valuable information to 5th grade students this week. His main message was, “If you haven’t met someone face to face, DO NOT communicate with them online. Please talk with your child about being responsible, respectful and safe (Be a Champ) online. If a threatening or inappropriate message is received, children should follow these steps:

1. Do not respond
2. Save the message: Do not delete
3. Show a trusted adult
4. The adult can determine if parents, internet provider or police need to be contacted.

"42 Words We Should Say More Often" quilt.

Ed White Families met before the Old Creamery production to continue our focus on empathy and respect.  Each family had a poster with a word that helps us show respect toward each other.  Students decorated their family poster with phrases and pictures that demonstrate the meaning of their word.  We created a "word quilt" of 42 Words We Should Use!  Students have enjoyed finding their family word and looking at the many colorful posters while entering the lunchroom.

Right before spring break,  in honor of "Pi Day" (March 14th), Peyton M.'s dad came in and did a fun, interactive, lesson on how to find the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter- better known as Pi - the students really enjoyed using various sized circles and calculating the numbers to find out it seemed to magically always come to 3.14!
