Ed White Families are Back!
We are excited to announce the return of Ed White Families. It has been a year of many changes and transitions and the same is true for our families. In order to include our new staff members as family leaders and our many new students, we have reorganized families. While our “old family” is still important to us and we will keep our connections with those people, our new families will allow us to make even more friends and know another supportive adult in our school environment.
Families will meet on late start mornings for a 30-minute activity. In addition to getting acquainted with our new family members, our first meeting on Wed., March 4 will begin an All-School Read! Every student will receive their own copy of a Bad Case of the Stripes. Our PTA generously funded these books. We will read the book together in Families and discuss our own differences and unique qualities. Throughout the month of March, students will participate in activities at home and at school with their new book. Check the newsletter weekly for further information on these activities. On April 1, our next late start, Ed White Families will celebrate our all school book study by sharing their experiences at school and at home. We are looking forward to meeting our new family members!
using strategies to stop bullying, both as a target and as a witness. Social media can expose children to threatening behavior and cyber bullying. Trooper Dan Loussaert presented safety information to 5th grade students this week. With a number of real life examples from NetSmartz.org, Trooper Dan showed students the importance of using the following safety steps when receiving a threatening or uncomfortable message:
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.
Sixth grade students talked with Amy Schubert, Juvenile Court Liason for North Scott schools. Mrs. Schubert works with junior high and high school students where she spends much of her time investigating cyber bullying and misuse of social media. She talked with 6th grade students about appropriate use of social media and the consequences of inappropriate use. One of her main messages to 6th graders is “It never goes away!” so choose carefully when posting on social media. Mrs. Schubert also emphasized the importance of being assertive and getting help from adults when social media is being used to hurt and harass students. Students took an active part in the discussion with insightful comments and questions.
Fourth grade students will be looking at NetSmartz.org in guidance classes next week. We will be exploring the website for games and videos that teach us important lessons about Internet safety and positive uses of social media. All intermediate students will also receive a booklet for parents to review safety rules with your children.
Elena K., Glory H., and Hannah S. in 6th grade were the building champions. The next round will be on Saturday, March 7 at the Scott County Library at 10:00 a.m.
The runners up were Connor M. and Ashlyn and Addison F. There were only three points behind the winning team!
