February 25 5th Grade Parent Tour at MMS, 8:30am (RSVP to MMS Office)
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/.

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.
*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:
