      The Green Team, led by Ms. Fleming, is collecting sheet plastic to recycle with Trex, the synthetic lumber company. When we collect 500lbs, we get a nice bench! Sheet plastic is stretchy, like grocery bags, plastic overwrap from your toilet paper and paper towels, dry cleaner bags, etc. The collection box is near the 8th grade classroom.

    • CAUTION WITH SOCIAL MEDIA

      Dear Parents and Guardians, When using Whatsapp and YouTube, a scary avatar named Momo interrupts videos and challenges children to complete a series of bizarre and potentially dangerous tasks and upload evidence they were completed. On the final day of the challenge, children are encouraged to win the game by committing suicide. Children are threatened throughout the challenge with harm or sharing their personal information online if they do not complete the tasks.

      We are partnering with families to raise awareness of this online threat. Please discuss the challenge with your child and use online safety practices that include not accepting invitations from strangers or taking part in anonymous challenges. We encourage you to allow electronic device usage in shared family spaces. Please monitor your child’s social media accounts and online activities, and install parental controls and filters.

      If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your grade level administrator.

      Sincerely,

      Dr. Hill
