The Cedar Falls Community School District is excited to offer an opportunity for local businesses to partner with our elementary teachers during the month of December. Each elementary classroom will spend time during the month on computer science lessons and we plan to arrange a community volunteer for at least one hour in each classroom during that time. In order to meet this goal, we will need many businesses to help support this project and approximately 150 total volunteers. Please share this link with your co-workers who might be interested in volunteering:

The elementary classes will be using lessons from the materials available online. These lessons are also planned to coincide with the Hour of Code Week, December 9-15, 2019.

Teachers and schools that host Hour of Code events are encouraged to include community volunteers in the classroom during these activities. Our goal is to arrange a volunteer to join each classroom for a 1 hour lesson sometime during the month of December. The role of the volunteers will include working with students as they complete the online lessons and potentially providing a short explanation of experiences they have had in computer science. We hope to have all volunteers identified by November 18.

This event in December aligns with our district wide plan to provide Computer Science instruction for students at all levels. This plan includes offering computer science classes at the junior and senior high school levels, including an AP Computer Science Principles course. The Cedar Falls School District has received around a $65,000 in grants from the state over the past 2 years to support Professional Development and Computer Science endorsement opportunities for teachers. This funding will also in part support the implementation of our Hour of Code activities in December.

Please consider supporting our Cedar Falls Elementary Schools in Hour of Code lessons during the month of December. Your business can help us by allowing your employees to volunteer in the schools and by promoting this opportunity with your employees. Please contact me with any questions.

Thanks for considering this exciting opportunity,
Kenton Swartley

The digital world is constantly evolving with new social media platforms, apps, and devices, and children and teens are often the first to use them. Some negative things that may occur include  cyberbullying , sexting, posting hateful messages or content, and participating in negative group conversations. If your child posts  harmful or negative content  online, it may not only harm other children; it can affect their online reputation, which can have negative implications for their employment or college admission.
While you may not be able to monitor all of your child’s activities, there are things you can do to  prevent cyberbullying  and protect your child from harmful digital behavior:
  • Monitor a teen’s social media sites, apps, and browsing history, if you have concerns that cyberbullying may be occurring.
  • Review or re-set your child’s phone location and privacy settings.
  • Follow or friend your teen on social media sites or have another trusted adult do so.
  • Stay up-to-date on the latest apps, social media platforms, and digital slang used by children and teens.
  • Know your child’s user names and passwords for email and social media.
  • Establish rules about appropriate digital behavior, content, and apps.
