The winning reader from the whole school will not only receive these prizes but will also get an extra special prize but I just could not decide which one to choose from so I am leaving it up to you Panthers!

Tonight, we had our first Parent University of the year and it was extremely informative. Lucia Artaega from the Arizona Attorney General’s Office came to discuss topics on internet safety including cyber bullying, social media sites, and potential online threats.

If you were unable to attend the event, Ms, Artaega provided additional resources for families available in the Front Office so come on by and snag one!


Parent University – Internet Safety on Thursday, 9/7

Each quarter, parents and community members are invited to campus to attend discussions on important topics at Parent University.

Please join us, Thursday, September 7th, as Lucia Artaega from the Arizona Attorney General’s Office presents on Internet Safety. The presentation will discuss cyber bullying, sites linked to cyber bullying, and who parents can contact in the event that their child is bullied. The purpose of this presentation is to inform parents on how to become familiar with the social media sites their children are using, learning the sites capabilities, discuss privacy settings, and encouraging parents to communicate the dangers of talking with people online to their children.

Light refreshments will be available to families. I look forward to seeing you all there!
