Dear Friends and Families of Los Ranchos,
Students enjoyed a rousing assembly spotlighting our upcoming Walk-a-thon! It is hard to believe it is in a week. Charlotte, Luke and Sam did a great job sharing all the important details. Their message was important; this is the only fundraiser of the year and it pays for all the programs and materials we have come to love and depend on. From art to technology, soccer goals to field trips, robotics to math enrichment, and everything in between. The best part . . . it is a really fun day for the whole school community. We appreciate your participation on the field and on the fundraising!
Digital Citizenship is a big focus for us. This week in the library, Mrs. Sabo discussed digital citizenship with students in grades K-6, using material provided by Common Sense Media, as required by the district. Some of the topics covered were:
- Going Places Safely Online
- Email guidelines
- Showing Respect Online
- Talking Safely Online
- The Power of Words
- Scams and Schemes
We encourage parents to have frequent dialogue and thoughtful conversations with your students about making great choices in their digital lives. For more information and guidelines, please visit the Common Sense Media website and browse their Family Guides and Parent Concerns pages. We will be hosting a Digital Citizenship presentation for parents on Tuesday, November 14 from 6:00 - 7:00. Our presenter is a representative from our Sheriff’s Department. I hope you can join us.
Have a great weekend!
