World Down Syndrome Day is on March 21, 2023. As a school community, we will be acknowledging this day on Friday, March 17, 2023.
We are encouraging students and staff to wear mismatched socks on Friday to help raise awareness about Down Syndrome. We know that the MV Beattie school community will go “all in” on this one and show us their best crazy sock pairings.
SD83 will be hosting a three-part series for parents that focuses on online gaming, social media safety for youth, and sexploitation. The sessions will be held online from 6:30 – 7:30 p.m. on three consecutive Mondays, February 27, March 6 and March 13.
Led by a Safer Schools Together trainer Scott Rothermel, the first session is about the Risks and Rewards of online gaming, the second is on social media, and the third on sexting, sextortion and sexual age of consent.
