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/.
COUNTRY LANE IS REDUCING PAPER FLYERS STARTING JANUARY 4, 2016!
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:
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.

ELAC IS FOR EVERYONE
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.
