Digital Citizenship and On-Line Safety

Ninety percent of parents or legal  guardians of children ages 8-18 believe
 they should bear a lot of  responsibility for ensuring children have safe
 online experiences, although  only 34 percent see themselves as "very
knowledgeable" about how to use the Intranet safely and responsibly.  
On-line experiences can be one effective
way young people can make connections, build
interests, and explore new ideas.  All children
need guidance and it's essential to provide it.

"The Digital Citizenship" (above)
offers tools and tips to make computer 
usage creative, informative, and safe.

Doing the Right Thing

Any school experience is elevated when
professionals and staff see young people
as students who are capable and worthy.  

That's a given because kids are
just that and more, when we develop
and nurture their individual talents.
Opening the door to opportunities
for youngsters to explore and refine
their abilities is our responsibility. 
It makes looking toward the future for these 
young people as something they'll meet with hope and resiliency.  Just perhaps the district, its parents, and school community is operating out of a new and innovative mindset.  

That's so important for all of us
involved in this game we call "life." 

Therefore, let's not "drop the
ball" for any of our young students.
Thanks Coach Wood for seeing your 
players & staff through a memorable 2013
football season at Lawrenceville High School.

Dads Matter

"It's doesn't take money.
It doesn't take things." 
Dads matter in the lives of children
so even showing up at school
just might be the coolest thing ever!  

Dads can make a big difference.
In writing this I remember 
my father, who's gone now.
Where was he when I was little?

Learning to ride a bike, check.
Learn multiplication facts, check.
Helping me create that huge
salt-flour map of America, check.

Let's get father's back into the education
process and into our school; dads matter!
