     Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year. We have a lot planned for this year.


October is Digital Safety Month so we will be focusing on this topic for several weeks. Through a series of grade level videos and discussions, students will be able to share with others what they have learned about cybersafety.

Fourth graders will key in on the concepts of  keeping our information private, staying clear of internet strangers, asking before downloading due to the danger of viruses, and finally, balancing online and offline life. Their culminating project will be a collaborative Google slideshow that will be shared with others.
 
Fifth graders are focusing on protecting privacy, making sure their online friends are people they know offline, and determining what is valid information because not all things on the internet are true.They will complete an online assessment at the end of this unit.

Sixth graders have focused on concepts of personal information being private property, choosing online friends safely, cyberbullying, and our social media presence. They just completed an online assessment at the end of this unit.

Sixth graders are now moving on to a coding unit, using Code Monkey. This unit will continue through the rest of the first trimester and beyond.
