Social Media and Internet Safety with Constable Carter Duscheney

Constable Carter Duscheney from the Calgary Police Service will be at Clear Water Academy from February 6-8 presenting on safety when using social media and electronic devices for our students in Grade 4-12.  The subject matter that he will present is timely, serious in nature, and preventative: how to keep oneself and others safe online, and what the risks and responsibilities are of online activity and electronic communication. 

There will be a presentation taking place for parents on Thursday, March 9th at Coffee and Conversation in the Athlone Auditorium at 8:45 a.m. It is highly recommended that you attend.

Congratulations to Mrs. Ross's and Ms Warcop's Kindergarten classes for their donation to Mary's Meals!  The Kindergarten students worked hard in December to each paint a unique and beautiful piece of artwork which was then made into Christmas cards that could then be purchased by their families. Through the sale of their Christmas art cards, the students raised $212.00 for Mary's Meals, which is enough to feed 13 children in Malawi, Africa for an entire school year.  Way to go kids! 
Thank you so much to the parents who supported their children with the purchase of the Christmas cards.  A VERY special thank you to parents Jamie Horvath and Stephanie Hui for volunteering their afternoon in the classroom, to Lindsay Dunn and June Anne Hendrickson for their contributions, and of course, to Ms. Warcop and Mrs. Ross for coordinating the details to make this project happen for their students.
