*-White Ribbon Week- Nov 7-11

PTA sponsors white ribbon week each year to help kids understand how to use technology in safe and healthy ways.

This week, we are hosting with the theme "Let's Get Real," which helps students become more aware of their digital time and give priority to real life.  Each family will receive a booklet with media conversations to have with your children at home.  Our power boosts for next week are:

  1. I will use technology to show kindness and respect.
  2. I will give priority to real life relationships.
  3. I will choose healthy activities to handle stress and boredom.  
  4. I will choose to balance my day.
  5. I will remember that not everything online is real.  

We'd like to make a school slideshow that showcases Silver Mesa students and what they love to do in their "real life" to have fun, beat boredom, relieve stress, etc.  Take a picture of your child doing an activity that doesn't involve screens and send it to silvermesapta@gmail.com.  We will create a slideshow for the students to watch.  Pictures must be submitted by Thursday, Nov. 10th.  

----Finally, we'll need help with lunchtime activities.  Sign up here to help!
