2020 Internet Safety Week

This week in Computer Class we have put our regular lessons to the side, and have focused on the topic of online safety. I utilize a great resource called The NetSmartz Workshop, which provides age-appropriate videos, activities and presentations for children ages 5 – 17.

Some topics include
· “UYN” (Use Your NetSmartz) by never giving out personal information
· Tell a Trusted Adult – if you find something that makes you feel scared or uncomfortable
· The Webville Outlaws, such as Meet-Me-Mack, who tries to get kids he talks to online to meet him face to face
· Being a Good Digital Citizen vs. Cyberbullying
· Terrible Text – how does it feel to receive a mean or hurtful text?
· Are you a Bystander (ignore a bad situation) or do you step up?
· Social Media and Digital Footprints – how might posting too much or posting inappropriately affect you? Your friends and family? Your future?
· “Grooming” – online predators
· Real Life Stories and Consequences

Every person has the responsibility as a child of God to show ethical, faith-filled digital citizenship.

Please remember that you, the parent or guardian, are our kid’s best online protection. Please be aware of what your child does on the internet, talk to them about potential online dangers, and monitor their computer and phone use. Let’s work together to make our children safe online!

In Christ,
Susan Woeste
Computer Teacher

We welcomed over 200 grandparents for another wonderful Christ Lutheran Grandparents Day'. We would like to thank Chef Jeremy for the delicious breakfast and the PTL for transforming the gym into a beautiful ballroom under the direction of parent volunteer/Grandparents' Day chair Vienna Lopez. A BIG shout out goes to Sue McKenizie, 6th grade teacher who runs the entire event and to each of our teachers who worked hard preparing students for an amazing program. Grandparents Day is one of the biggest events of the year and we could not do it without the help of each and everyone of you. Thank you!

See our Facebook page for photos and stay tuned for the release of the Grandparents Day Program video courtesy of Elder Paul Mills. We hope to have that posted on the Christ Lutheran Church You Tube Chanel soon!

Merry Christmas!

‘Twas the season of Christmas and all through our school,
Hearts of teachers and students desired Jesus to rule
The lessons taught and learned were seasoned with care…
With the hope sure and certain that Jesus was there.
Through Christmas programs, musicals, and all said and done
We’ve desired to share the Good News with everyone
That God loved the world so much that He gave,
His one and only Son to seek and to save.
CLCS Families, please listen with care...
Take comfort in knowing that Jesus is there
Not just at Christmas, but all the year through
To bless you and keep you in all that you do.
May God fill you with wisdom, knowledge, and grace
As you trust Him to guide you in all that you face.
His grace all-sufficient will meet every need.
He is with you and for you...He will help you proceed
Filled with love, joy, and peace, through life in each season
Sharing at Christmas and always that Christ is the Reason
That by God’s grace through faith in His Son,
His Greatest Gift is offered to everyone.

Written by Charlene Soon, Kindergarten Teacher

We will see you back to school on January 6, 2020. Have a very Merry Christmas!
