We will be celebrating National School Lunch Week October 14th - 25th.  We encourage parents to come and have lunch with their student on their designated date and time sent home with students.  An a adult lunch costs $3.55.  We ask that parents bring cash.  We can not take money off of student accounts,  and do not accept Credit Cards.
Guidance

Being brave enough to do what you should, even when you're afraid.  Identify things with your family that make you feel afraid.  Write them down.  Next, seek opportunities this month to work on being brave.  It takes courage to handle difficult or hard situations, and we all need practice to do the right thing even when we're afraid.

Greenwood Mill talking Common Sense approach to digital citizenship
  

Students are learning how to be safe, responsible, and respectful online with lessons from Common Sense Education.  We are learning that a good citizen understands the rights and responsibilities that come with being online and is someone who uses technology in a positive way.  A good digital citizen also fins a balance in the time spent on electronic devices and other activities.
