A froncommonsensepage article on the BDN today along with a video brings home the devastating effects of online bullying.  An additional article asks parents to check for signs of cyberbullying.  A federal mandate passed in July has made it mandatory for K-12 students to receive lessons on digital citizenship and digital literacy.  Our teachers are using Common Sense Media, a link under resources on our website.  In addition to offering excellent lessons, this site provides a tool for parents to use when selecting books and media for their children.  It also provides advice we can use when talking to our children about social media.  The site does an excellent job in presenting to parents, educators, and students the role of a digital citizen.  Today, living in a powerful online world has many opportunities and challenges.  Responsible use can lead to so many rewarding experiences.

blogshotwebWDHS Library Aides have embarked on a new adventure and are unveiling a blog that will hopefully attract readers.  Love Thy Library is a blog that has been created by Matt McCarty, a senior who aspires to become a computer science major.  Avid readers Carmen Bragg, Carsyn Koch, Rayah Saucier, and Nick Silver will be blogging about some of their favorite books they have read in the WDHS library.  Now that the site has been launched, we will be updating the reviews on a regular basis.  We look forward to your suggestions and comments as we embark on this endeavor.
