White Ribbon Week - April 8th-12th

Next week is White Ribbon Week at our school. This is a week where we focus on empowering students to make safe choices in media and technology. We are in need of parent volunteers to help and engage the students with some simple, fun, and positive lunch activities to help reinforce the daily themes. Thank you for your help! See the SignUpGenius to volunteer:

Helping children learn to control their media behaviors is a vital skill in the world we live today. You can help at home too! Every parent is qualified and should feel empowered to set limits and converse with your child about media. But, are you a trusted adult? It's important that our children feel that we are. We have attached a few tools that can help you initiate conversation, get ideas for your family, and see what they'll be learning throughout the week.
