Image of a globe with the title "Be Cyber Savvy" to announce Cyber Security Awareness MonthOctober is National Cyber Security Awareness Month which is an annual campaign to raise awareness about the importance of cybersecurity. The Internet touches almost all aspects of everyone’s daily life, whether we realize it or not.  The Internet is a wonderful place for learning and entertainment, but like the world around us, it can pose dangers to our children if precautions are not taken. Allowing free access puts your child, your computer and your personal data at risk.  Please visit StaySafeOnline.org for more information and additional resources on how we can all ensure that our children become good digital citizens.

Image of sign with caption of Bully Free Zone with two children holding hands playfully

Every October, schools and organizations across the country join in observing National Bullying Prevention Month. The goal: encourage communities to work together to stop bullying and cyberbullying by increasing awareness of the prevalence and impact of bullying on all children of all ages.  Awareness is a first step toward decreasing this behavior, but it’s actions that take place that changes the world for our children.  Our campus is a Bully Free Zone  and our actions begin in our classrooms.  Raising awareness and advocating for effective anti-bullying policies promotes a healthier school climate and where we enforce our mission of providing a positive learning environment in which all students develop the skills to succeed.  The more awareness that that is created during the month of October, and all year round, will bring us one step closer to putting an end to bullying!

To learn how you can help in this mission, visit stopbullying.gov.
