*Important* SchoolSpeak Parent Information
SchoolSpeak is coming!! SchoolSpeak is a school information system we chose that will better allow us to manage all school-related items. It will allow for improved communication amongst teachers, students, and parents. Things like classroom calendars, grade book, report cards, homework, announcements, lunch ordering, email, forms, and payments will be located in one central location. We will be sending out login information to parents before the Fall 2016 school year.
If you haven’t already done so, please be sure you have sent us updated email addresses for those in your household who need to see school information at the following: (This is the email we’ll send your SchoolSpeak login information to):

Cyber Safety Alert
A new study released by the Center for Cyber Safety and Education revealed that most parents of elementary and middle school students in the United States are not aware of the risks their children are taking online. The study found that children in both elementary and middle school visit sites their parents would not approve of and engage with strangers on-line and off-line more frequently than their parents know.Key findings from the study include:
40 percent of students surveyed said they connected with or chatted online with a stranger.
15 percent tried to meet with a stranger they first encountered online.
