Please find below links to materials for parents about the safe use of technology and media by your children.
These materials are from the website, http://commonsensemedia.org, which is a great resource for parents and educators. Although your children are taught internet safety at Highview, it is important for parents to be "media-wise."

"Kindness is the Key to Everything"
Mrs. Lipson, our school counselor, has read the book
by Dr. Lisa Roth and Dr. Karen Siris to all our students.
The book is about a young boy who notices that a classmate comes to school feeling sad and lonely. He also notices that most of the children in the school are compassionate and caring, so he gathers a group together to form a
Caring Majority. B
y doing this, he successfully prevents a child from being bullied and ultimately creates a positive change in his school.
After Mrs. Lipson read and discussed the book with the children, the consensus was for us to form a

who help the targeted child feel welcomed by a circle of friends. By creating a caring community of upstanders, the social norms in our school change and children will want to be part of the norm.
With the help of our third and fourth grade Caring Majority Ambassadors, the word is being spread throughout the school that children may not be excluded during any part of the school day.
We have just adopted a new school slogan, Kindness is the Key to Everything. We will be celebrating Kindness in the school during the week of October 29. A letter will be coming home next week about it.
The No Child Left Behind Act requires parents to be informed of their child's academic progress on each of their state assessments. Please be assured that if your child takes a state assessment, you will receive notification from the state by mail of your son's/daughter's results along with an overview and explanation. If you have not already received the scores for last year's testing, please call the main office at
and we will mail you a copy of the report.
In addition, parents also have the right to know about the professional qualifications and state certification of their child's teacher. If staff has been assigned to teach outside of their area of certification, you will receive written notification. Please contact the school if you have any questions regarding the professional qualifications of your child's teacher.

The Dignity for All Students Act (DASA)
The Dignity for All Students Act (DASA) was signed into NYS law on September 13, 2010. The legislation amended State Education Law by creating a new Article 2,
Dignity for All Students
, and revising Section 801-a regarding instruction in civility, citizenship, character education, tolerance, respect for others, and dignity.
Please find below three links. The first link is the Highview Elementary School Code of Conduct. The second link is the Highview Elementary School Behavior Response Plan. The third link is the Conflict Resolution model that we use at Highview.
The staff at Highview Elementary School work to create a safe, nurturing environment for our students. Our staff review with the students the code of conduct and encourage you to discuss it at home.
Thanks for your help.
