Digital Citizenship and Cell Phones at SVMS
SVMS cell phone policy will include a “Digital Citizenship” course, a program designed to teach kids the skills they need to be safe and smart on digital devices. The classes began the first week of school and when complete each child will receive a sticker that verifies they have learned the skills to be a responsible digital device user. At this point, they will be “certified” to use a personal device at school during approved times and in designated areas. Digital Citizenship means being smart, alert, strong, kind, and brave. Parents who are involved with the online/phone safety conversation at home are essential to our efforts to help all students at the school learn the lessons of safety and etiquette in the digital world. Here are some areas to focus on with your child.
Protect themselves from digital threats, including bullies and scams
Get smart about sharing: what, when and with whom
Be kind and respectful toward other people especially on social media
Ask for help from a parent or other adult with tricky situations
National School Lunch Week October 9-13, 2023
The National School Lunch Program (NSLP) serves nearly 30 million children every school day. President John F. Kennedy created National School Lunch Week (NSLW) in 1962 to promote the importance of a healthy school lunch in a child’s life and the impact it has inside and outside of the classroom.
Watch for info on how to earn a chance to win a color changing tumbler (5 available) just by eating school lunch that week!
