81714_24213_2.jpgAll students visit their Library Media Center weekly for  scheduled classes, and as needed any other time
during the school day.

In the library we're learning about cybersafety.
For several weeks our curriculum will be from the Common Sense Media website, and I invite all parents to read through the grade-appropriate sections and watch the videos -- and start an ongoing conversation about cybersafety with your children.
