    CPEP sponsored a visit from ASML, the predominant company that builds the machines that make computer chips (motherboards).  They're in Wilton, CT.
    CPEP kids had a great time building hovercraft and riding a small Hovercraft.
    If your child is in CPEP, ask him/her about the visit today.
    THANK-YOU CPEP AND ASML.

Technology 14-15

  • Digital Citizenship
    We have been discussing proper digital citizenship in class.     A good website for parents and students is commonsensemedia.org.
    The students asked me to post this video that lists the Top 10 Things to Think About Before You Post.   https://www.commonsensemedia.org/videos/oversharing-think-before-you-post        I would love them to make up some posters relating to these ideas, which I will place in my hallway.
     
    We discussed the fact that they are still too young to access many of the social media sites, but that these rules also apply to texting and other forms of communication, including writing.
