"Be There Prince William"
The School Board signed a resolution designating November as "Be There Prince William" Month.  This suggests a simple way parents can play an active role in preparing their children for success every day.  “Be There Prince William” inspires parents to make ordinary moments extraordinary by connecting with their children during the daily routines of life. Visit bethere.org to read stories submitted from other school divisions and for inspiration.
 
Here is the tip:

It's not an April Fool's joke.  The benefits of connecting with your child every day will last a lifetime.

No es una broma del Dia de April Fool.  Los beneficios de conectarse con su hijo cada dia duraran toda la vida.

Technology Supports Learning
We encourage the use of technology in the classroom to enhance student learning.  In such situations, the teacher will issue a technology pass to students.  However, at other times, to preserve the instructional environment at Marsteller, we ask that students store their cell phones in their lockers.

Students are reminded that all personal electronic devices are only to be used in the classroom with teacher permission.  Taking photos, posting on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook, and checking text messages and emails violate the PWCS Code of Behavior Acceptable Use Policy.  



Box Tops for Education
Have you ever noticed the Box Tops for Education coupon on a food package?  If not, please look for them and start saving them.  We can use them for our school.  There is a drop off container in the front office.   We will continue to collect them for next school year.  Marsteller can redeem them for supplies and equipment.  Thanks very much for supporting our school.
