BE MEDIA SAVVY
As you know, our students have attending grade-specific assemblies on social media, safety and cyberbullying from Michelle Ciulla Lipkin

We have a new page
on our website dedicated to media literacy, with information and videos that Michelle has provided, so that parents and school staff can also benefit from the information that is being provided to our students. This page is intended to be a resource for our kids as well!
