Common Sense Media
Media and technology are at the very center of all our lives today — especially our children’s. Kids today spend over 50 hours of screen time every week. The media content they consume and create has a profound impact on their social, emotional, cognitive, and physical development. Learning how to use media and technology wisely is an essential skill for life and learning in the 21st century. But parents, teachers, and policymakers struggle to keep up with the rapidly changing digital world in which our children live and learn. Now more than ever, they need a trusted guide to help them navigate a world where change is the only constant.
Common Sense Media helps families make smart media choices. We offer the largest, most trusted library of independent age-based and educational ratings and reviews for movies, games, apps, TV shows, websites, books, and music. Our Parent Concerns and Parent Blog help families understand and navigate the problems and possibilities of raising children in the digital age.
Wear your neon colors and bring your glowing personalities for our “Raiders Rave” dance. On October 26th from 7 pm to 9 pm in our school gymnasium. There will be food, fun and music for all. Admission is $5 with your signed permission slip (attached below). Tickets can be purchased Oct 15th through 26th from 8:10 am to 8:35 am from our school nurse. Please make sure to have your signed permission slip upon purchase. LETS GLOW RAIDERS!
