BELWOOD ELEMENTARY EARNS DIGITAL CITIZENSHIP DESIGNATION
Common Sense, the national nonprofit organization dedicated to helping kids and families thrive in a world of digital media and technology, has recognized Belwood Elementary School as a Common Sense Certified School: Digital Citizenship. "This is in large part because of Ramona Burnett’s efforts in her role as media specialist to integrate the digital citizenship components into her media classes as part of the weekly specials rotation," said Chad Moore, BES Principal. He continued, "Furthermore, our students’ parents can rest assured that their students now have a baseline knowledge and understanding of what it means to use their iPad and maintain an online presence safely and responsibly."
