Students use the Internet consistently, which makes it very easy to copy the work of others and presenting it as one's own work. This is called plagiarism. Students needs to understand plagiarism and its consequences. Plagiarism is copying and pasting anything that is created by someone else without giving them credit. This includes copying and pasting music, videos, images, and text. People's creative work is protected under copyright law. Digital Citizenship is about not plagiarizing, and about being a respectful and responsible user and creator on the Internet.
Principal’s News - November
As a chill fills the air, please remember to send your children dressed in layers so they can be comfortable both in the classroom while learning and outside enjoying some fresh air and activity.
This month we were asked to report on our 2014-2015 CBM (Curriculum Based Measure) benchmark data. The State Office of Education manages LandTrust money for schools to provide support for students that may need intervention. We are asked to report on how we spend the money and the data that supports student growth. Each year we are challenged with setting goals, monitoring progress, and adjusting instruction to make sure our students are advancing. From fall of 2014 to spring of 2015 we saw a 12% increase on our CBM benchmark assessment. With continued community support, dedicated teachers and staff, and our amazing students we will continue to celebrate this kind of success.
