How Students & Parents Can Post Blog Comments

We had a great first day of school today! I've sent home a "syllabus brochure" with information for parents, and I've also sent home a letter for parents to read and sign. Students should also read and sign the letter :-)

To help students learn how to post comments on blogs while at the same time protecting their privacy rights, WMS staff have set the following guideline for posting online comments:
  • Students should not use their own names when posting on WMS teachers' blogs.
    • Students should post comments by using the following "code" names: "Lions" followed by the last 4 digits of their student ID number. (ex. Lions1234)
  • Parents can also "code" their comments if they would like to do so. Parents' codes could match their students' codes by adding descriptors. MomOfLions1234 or DadOfLions1234, etc.
Student and parent bloggers should write their names and blogger codes on an index card so I can know who is participating in our blog conversations. The index cards can be given to me directly or students can drop them in their class baskets in the back of my room. Students who participate can earn Pawllers for PBIS rewards and/or my weekly class raffles.
