To kick off the 2017 Week of Digital Citizenship, first watch the video below to find out what's really best for education-related technology. THEN, check out our STEAM Resources page for Common Sense Media's Family Media Agreement forms! Whether your child is just learning to use a technology device as a first grader, or they're introducing you to new apps and sites daily as a high school student, there's an agreement here for you! Have the tough conversations, set the expectations and ensure that your child is a respectful and responsible digital citizen in exchange for their (intentional and responsible) use of those highly-hicovetted devices!

April 15, 2016 began at The Warehouse with a warm welcome from Bloomington Mayor, John Hamilton, thanking all participants for getting involved in the community and participating in Global Youth Service Day (GYSD). Monroe County Youth Council (MCYC), a project of the Asset Building Coalition, the Bloomington Volunteer Network, the Youth Services Bureau, and the Monroe County Public Library, planned their celebration of the largest service event in the world. This year marks Bloomington’s 5th year participating in Global Youth Service Day. MCYC spent the last school year preparing for this day of volunteering by exploring local issues and planning projects to meet the needs of the community. Part of this planning involved creating six different service teams; each team had individual goals for the day from kicking off the Page by Page program promoting the 40 Developmental Assets in a local elementary school, to building nature trails and removing invasive plant species. MCYC far exceeded its recruiting goal of 250 students when over 450 applied to be a part of GYSD. Ultimately, over 330 students (which included more than 90 Edgewood students) and 30 adult volunteers served the local community with nine local agency partners to make another successful GYSD. (This blog was adapted from a letter by the MCYC.)
The Edgewood Dynamic Duo Fine Arts Team of Ellen Bergan and Celestina Garcia qualified for Academic Super Bowl State Meet, to be held at Purdue University on Saturday, May 7.

The Academic Super Bowl team consist of only 11 students this year. Mrs. O'Malley coaches the Fine Arts Team.

Because the accounts are separate, students will not be able to make changes to any of the settings made by parents.
