RELATED ARTS Next week 6th grade students will be bringing home a form regarding their related arts selection for 7th grade. All 6th grade students must sign up to take one of the following classes: Technical Education and Computers Band Choir Orchestra Additional information will be on the form. As your students receive information, if you have questions, feel free to contact me. Stay tuned for future information about additional opportunities regarding the middle school. RESPECT The CORE focus this month is respect and we are specifically focusing on self - respect. Each day your students are being challenged to do their best, which is one of the greatest demonstrations of self-respect. As students take care of themselves, they typically do not need to be concerned about respect from others. Respect breeds respect. Again, students will be chosen at the end of the month to have lunch with Mr. Koomler and me. But didnt we already do respect as part of PAWS this year? Yes, we did. We all know that respect IS THAT important. I say it again, as you demonstrate respect towards others, so will your students. ORDER Congratulations to the following students who were chosen as students of the month for the month of March. These students were selected because they know the importance of following rules and procedures and consistently help to maintain ORDER in the school. These students had lunch with Mr. Koomler and me earlier this week.

Apps to Watch Out For

You put in your zip code and it will tell you when people whisper something in your area and the user can decide whether to chat with them.


Users of this social network can ask other users questions, and can choose to remain anonymous when doing so.

Boasting 100 million users, Kik is an instant messenger with a built-in mobile web browser. This is just one of several options children use to hide text messages.

A ghost is the logo for this social network, representing the nature of the messages it sends. The messages or photos disappear a few seconds after being opened.

The reigning king of Internet video, Google's YouTube app allows the sharing and viewing of all kinds of video. If the settings aren't set for children, there is lots of inappropriate content certain aged children should not be exposed to.

Searching for other users based on proximity is the specialty of this app that also includes chatting features & GPS.
