White Ribbon Week

Submitted by stacey.holmes on

We are excited about our first ever White Ribbon Week at Mapleton Elementary!  Also known as Internet Safety Week, this week is designed to help children make smart choices in media and online.  Our theme this year is "I've Got the Power!"  While we and our children may not have the power over everything that is on the Internet and other media, we DO have the power to decide what we will view, post and pass on to others.

Throughout the week, students have been able to earn tickets for prize drawings by participating in optional learning activities.  One of those activities is memorizing (or reciting as a class for the younger grades) a daily "Power Boost."  The Power Boosts are simple phrases that will help children understand and commit to behavior that will keep them safe online. 

We would like to give a shout out to Katie Chase and thank her for all of the hard work that she has put into our first ever White Ribbon Week.  Thank You Katie!!
