At Heuvelton Central School we have a 1-to-1 technology environment where every student has access to a chromebook or computer. Many homes in the district also have internet access, and most cell phones now provide full internet access. With increasing technology use comes the need for greater awareness of cybersecurity issues.
Here are some general cybersecurity safety tips to use at home and at work:

Students in Mrs. Fennessy's and Mrs. Cushing's third grade classes celebrated becoming narrative authors by sharing their problem stories with each other. Every student worked extremely hard at making sure their writing started with a hook, was told bit by bit, and used dialogue to bring their problem story to life. We ended this unit with a bang by popping confetti to celebrate our amazing third grade authors!
