Social Media Awareness, Digital Footprint, Digital Citizenship EVENING WORKSHOP

Dear KES Parents,

You are invited to attend a KES Teacher Panel on WEDNESDAY, November 14 at 7pm at the KES PTO Meeting being held in the gymnasium.

Social Media Awareness, Digital Footprint, Digital Citizenship…

These were the top-rated topics you said you wanted to know more about in the COMPACT Survey sent out last year. We have developed a program to address all the questions you had and more:

  • Does screen time at home affect my child at school?
  • What Privacy concerns should I be aware of with Fortnite and other Social Media sites?
  • What are kids learning about Social Media / Digital Citizenship at school?
  • What technology and screen time is my child exposed to while at KES?
  • What can I do to protect my family’s “Digital Footprint?”

A Panel of KES Teachers will  feature for this Special Program and will be joined by Jeanne Hand, KES Library Media Specialist and Chris Nelson, KLSD Director of Technology, to educate us on these important topics.  The KES COMPACT Committee and KES PTO sponsor this program:

COMPACT: Sarah Becker, Lorrie Egan, Lisa Ferrauto, Cristy Harris, Christine Hurson, Precious Knudsen and Geneve Patterson

PTO Teacher Representatives: Lynn Garofolo and Kim Buckley  

We hope to see you there!

 

Note from the HEALTH OFFICE

It is that chilly time of year again!  

Let us quickly review our school rules for recess attire.  As stated in the family handbook, please be sure your child comes to school in clothing that is appropriate for outdoor play. 

 If the temperature including the wind chill is below forty degrees, students should be prepared to play outside wearing the following:

  • Warm coats
  • Long pants

 On snowy days in order to play in the snow (including sledding) students will also need:

  • snow pants
  • Boots
  • Hats
  • Gloves

 Please be aware that if a student is not dressed appropriately, he or she will be unable to attend outdoor activities (including recess).  If the temperature including the wind chill falls below twenty degrees, the students will stay inside for recess.   Dr. Louis A. Corsaro, the school district physician, has also advised us in these matters. 

 Thank you for preparing your child with appropriate outdoor attire
