Digital Citizenship

Technology is an integral part of our students’ lives.  We want to ensure that students know how use technology wisely and as an essential tool in a rapidly changing digital world.  The District’s Technology Committee has selected three topics under digital citizenship that are important for our students to understand: cyberbullying, internet safety, and protecting their digital footprint.  The District’s Technology Committee is in the process of selecting age appropriate lessons, by Common Sense Media, for each grade level that will be delivered by their classroom teacher.  Students already learned about cyberbullying in 
October and the other topics are scheduled for January and Spring.  You can learn more about Common Sense Media and ways to discuss this topic with your family at https://www.commonsensemedia.org/.



Did you know that the cases and cases of paper that was donated at the beginning of the year was gone in October?  Country Lane wants to reduce the amount of paper we use.  Beginning January 4, the Office will no longer be distributing school-wide paper flyers.  This does not mean that you will never get flyers from H&SC, MEF, or outside vendors. However, we will be making a conscious effort to reduce the amount of paper we use.  Flyers will be available three ways:

  • Electronic copies of flyers will be emailed out to all families using the email addresses we have in our student database
  • Electronic copies of flyers will also be posted on our website homepage: www.countrylaneschool.org on the right column under “Wednesday Envelope Information.”
  • Paper copies will also be available in the Office

In preparation for the January 4 change, A TEST EMAIL WILL BE SENT ON DECEMBER 2.  If you don’t get this email, please come and update your email address in the Office.  Please note that at this time, we can only have one email address per child.  For families with multiple students at CL, we can use a different email per child, if requested.

Art Vistas Needs Pie Tins and Newspapers!

As you enjoy your holiday pies, please keep your leftover pie tins.  Newspapers are always needed as well.  Our Art Vistas team would love to repurpose  and reuse them!   If you have any pie tins that you’d like to donate, please drop them in the Art Vistas box in the Office.   Your support is greatly appreciated!

Project Cornerstone Parent Presentation

All Country Lane Parents are invited to attend our next ELAC (English Language Advisory Committee) meeting on Tuesday, 12/8 at 8:20 AM.

If you would like to attend this presentation and need a translator, please let Mrs. Armann know as soon as possible (e-mail carmann@moreland.org or call 408-874-3406).

ELAC is for Everyone!

Country Lane’s ELAC, the English Learner Advisory Committee, is not just for parents or guardians of English learners…it is for everyone!

Although we provide information about English learners (how they are tested by the state, what services we provide them at school, and strategies for parents, etc.), we also have different guest speakers that are fun and informative.  At our  March meeting, a representative from Project Cornerstone spoke to parents and gave recommendations on how parents can help their children cope with bullying. 

*Please complete the survey found at http://goo.gl/forms/PLqAMJFP3I to let us know what topics you’d like to see covered at ELAC meetings this year. Meetings will be held at 8:20 AM on the following Tuesdays in the Country Lane Staff Room:

  • December 8th
  • March 8th
  • May 10th

If you would like to attend an ELAC  meeting and need a translator, please advise Mrs. Chelsea Armann, the Assistant Principal, as soon as possible. You may contact her through your child’s teacher, send an e-mail to  carmann@moreland.org, or call Mrs. Armann directly at (408) 874-3406.
