Plans for March 14
Student Government and faculty have been working on plans for our students to participate in the nation-wide demonstration in recognition of victims in Parkland, Florida and on behalf of safe and peaceful schools. To make this a true learning opportunity, teachers will lead lessons on the history of peaceful demonstrations and debrief this experience with students. In addition, faculty will guide students who wish to participate in a short procession and assembly. Provisions will be made for any students who do not wish to participate. 
Cyber-Safety and Safe Choices
Speakers from Assistant District Attorney’s office will be here for grade level presentations on the following dates:
• Grade 6 on Monday, March 12
• Grade 8 on Thursday, March 15
• Grade 7 on Tuesday, March 20
Assemblies will be tailored to each grade level and will address how to be safe on-line, identify cyber-bullying, and the share the legal ramifications of sexting and other risky on-line behaviors.
Charge It!
Please remind students to fully shut down and charge their school laptops each evening to ensure they are ready for class the next day. A fully charged battery should last through the day, which means that students do not have to carry chargers and cords -- they are easily lost and expensive to replace.
