Are you wondering how to keep kids safe online? Do you know what it means to be a good "digital citizen"? What is the best way to handle online bullying? Ryan Biracree, the director of the Innovation & Learning Center at the Desmond-Fish Library in Garrison, discusses online learning and digital communication.
- ways to keep elementary-age children safe online,
- the elements of digital literacy, and
- how to build digital citizenship skills.
Ryan runs an array of science, technology, and writing programs for kids at the Library. He teaches classes and workshops for parents and children on digital literacy, online safety, information literacy, and digital citizenship. Ryan is an educator dedicated to inclusivity and creativity. He is also a Sargent parent!
Sargent Identified as TSI School
Click Here for a letter from Dr. Landahl about Sargent Elementary School having been identified as a TSI school based on state test data from the 2017-18 and 2018-19 school year. The identification for both schools comes from Black students not showing enough academic growth on the state tests from those two years.
Click Here for a letter from Principal Archer giving information about the Diagnostic Tool for School and District Effectiveness (DTSDE) Survey with questions addressing systems and organization, school leadership, curriculum, instruction, social-emotional learning, and parent and community engagement. The District sees this survey it as an opportunity to have a community-wide conversation about how they can provide your children with the skills and support they need to reach their full potential.
Next steps to come. Stay tuned. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com with any questions.
We Are Starting Fresh
The PTO is your voice.
Everyone at Sargent - family, teacher, or staff - is a member of the PTO.
You do not need to pay dues or make a donation to join the PTO, come to meetings, or have a vote.
The PTO is organized by an elected team of volunteer teachers, staff and parents/caregivers. The organizing team (sometimes called the “board”) relies on the wider Sargent community to run activities and programs that benefit all students. There are countless ways to help.
Here is a Back to School "care package" that Jenny recommends: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1uI-ysnpQo0DztegyaKcDmiRwjS1Yu1sN/view. It's a workbook and 1-page guide to various aspects of being back in school mode this year. Some are aimed at adults, some at kids. We recommend quickly scrolling through in case you see something that could come in handy!
