We start this week with partial good news about our administrative building. The repairs have been completed and the building has been cleaned up. We received clearance from the Office of Environmental Health and Safety to move our offices back. There is only one minor detail, the central Air Conditioning unit is not working and, with the temperatures we are expected to have this week, we really want the AC to work. A call has been placed and we expect the repairs to the AC unit to start today. In the meantime, we will be slowly moving back to our offices while still partially operating from the library.
On another note, this week is Digital Citizen Week and, being the only middle school in our district that obtained Digital Citizenship certification last year, we have been chosen to host a special event on Wednesday, during our PE classes.
Obtaining Digital Citizenship certification means that our students have received information about how to be responsible when using computers, internet, media, apps, and any other kinds of way to communicate in social media. Last year, during Homerooms, all students received information about internet safety. On Wednesday, during PE classes, we will have a Jeopardy game where all classes will compete to show their knowledge about how to be a responsible digital citizen.
Today, all homerooms teachers received sample questions for the Jeopardy game. We invite all classes to take a minute to cover the content of those questions in an effort to remind students how to be responsible digital citizens.
Additionally, and in preparation for the Wednesday event, we will be making PA announcements at the beginning of each period today and tomorrow with informative capsules about this topic. We apologize in advance for the interruptions and appreciate your support and patience.
Lastly, for all students who will be representing the PE classes, we are going to open room 8 for you to come and sharpen your skills on the content and questions that will be asked during the jeopardy game. Bring your lunch and get ready in room 8.
We are proud to be chosen, once again, to represent the middle schools in our district during this important Digital Citizenship Week. We are told that, on Wednesday, during lunch, there will be a special assembly on the Honor Court for all of us to celebrate.
Thank you and have a great week.
