Announcements 03-05-10

On Monday, March 15th from 6-7PM City School will offer a follow-up, hands-on Tech Safety Workshop for Parents in our computer lab. In January, our school counselors, Deb McCarthy and Vicki Nelson led a discussion of the challenges parents and schools face in promoting and monitoring safe and constructive use of our newest technologies (internet access, cell-phone use etc). On the 15th Lucie deLaBruere will lead the presentation of tools we all can use to maximize safe use of current technology.

Our computer lab has 23 stations so you must RSVP(call, email or in person) to reserve your spot. My telephone # is 527-0565 X3201. If response exceeds our lab capacity we will plan additional opportunities. Thanks. We look forward to seeing you on the 15th.

Summer Plans:
It’s not too early to be thinking about summer plans for your children such as camps and other recreational opportunities. It’s especially important for Franklin County residents who might be looking for financial assistance to support these plans. The Warner Fund offers such support but the deadline for applications is April 1st. If you are interested in a Warner Fund application or more information please contact me at 527-0565 or
