Cyber-Smarts: Parenting Children in a Digital Environment
The rapid growth of technology in recent years has created a virtual world for young people with exciting advancements in educational tools, entertainment and access to information, but also with many dangers. You rarely see a student or adult for an extended period of time that is not plugged in to something. Communication has changed, and so have the risks.
You are invited to a community event at Niles West High School on Tuesday, December 17, at 6:30 p.m., entitled "Cyber-Smarts: Parenting Children in a Digital Environment." Katie Koestner, Executive Director of Campus Outreach Services, will conduct this presentation. Please click HERE for more information.

REPORT CARDS WERE SENT HOME FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 22
All students should have received a report card from their 10th period teacher. Please be sure to ask to see your child's report card as soon as you can. When parents and teachers work together to support the education of our children, our children tend to do well in school.
Please take a moment to review your child's report card with them. You may want to set some goals for the second trimester. If something does not feel right, be sure to contact your child's teacher. Remember, you can always check your child's assignments on the PowerSchool Parent Portal.
Please check backpacks and folders for report cards. Remove the report, sign the envelope and return the envelope to school.

The Pledge Assembly
On Wednesday, November 20, Lincoln Hall Middle School will host a special assembly - The Pledge.
The theme of the assembly is valuing others. The message will be previewed by teachers in their advisory settings, presented in the main gym via video, pictures, and music, and processed with their advisors following the presentation. An advisory class is an important component of a middle school, and an advisor is an important role of a middle school teacher. When a child has an adult with whom they have built a positive relationship, they are more likely to consider a message beyond the content that the teacher typically teaches, but a life lesson - valuing others - that can have an impact on an individual, a school, a community and beyond. When this positive connection is made, a stronger connection is ALSO made with the child, their teachers, and the content the children are learning.
