Digital Citizenship

This entry was posted in News on by .

Oregon-Davis is privileged to have access to technology in and around the classroom. With this privilege, comes a responsibility to use this technology in the way that it was intended. We call this being a good “Digital Citizen.” We expect staff, students and parents to uphold their role in creating good digital citizens.

As a parent or adult, you will need to set ground rules on technology use. In addition to this, monitoring media use and discussing appropriate sites to visit will help. It is also recommended that you know your children’s passwords and codes for their devices. Regularly checking their social online behaviors will help as well.

It is important for students to be aware of acceptable online practice. Students should avoid sharing or posting inappropriate images, sharing passwords, posting personal information and communicating with unknown numbers or individuals. Students can also be aware of suspicious behavior such as being asked for pictures, being asked to use a webcam and being asked if they are alone. Students are also expected to refrain from cyber bullying, spreading rumors or gossip, posting pictures of others without their permission, pretending to be someone they are not and threatening or harassing others. If students are aware of cyber bullying, they are asked to inform an adult immediately.

Students must be aware that once a picture, comment or file is placed on a public internet site, it’s out there forever and it cannot be taken back or deleted. It is more important now than ever that parents know what their children are doing online. Take the time to talk to your children about this important subject.

Graduation

This entry was posted in News on by .

It has been an amazing year and an amazing journey for our seniors at Oregon-Davis. They have put in years of hard work, and as a result, their futures are coming together before their eyes. Some have been accepted to colleges across the country, some are pursuing a specific vocation while others are taking advantage of community college.

We will come together as a community to celebrate these students’ accomplishments together at our annual graduation ceremony on June 3, 2016. We hope to see you there!

Make the Most of this Time of Year

This entry was posted in News on by .

Summer is a great time to enrich and enhance student learning in a fun way. Parents can plan small, inexpensive or free outings in and around Hamlet that will allow students to expand their knowledge and pique curiosity. Parks and nature preserves serve as excellent outdoor classrooms where children can learn and explore. Children need to read daily, so picking out books at the library is a fun way to read for pleasure and keep up on reading skills. Going out with your child is not possible each and every day, playing at home and outside help children learn and grow.
