Tuesday was the launch of a new Digital Citizenship curriculum in the Middle School, and advisory groups were taking on the challenge of what it means to be a responsible citizen online.
1. Approach this process with a positive attitude, because this is an exciting time in your student’s life. Assure your child that they will attend a great school next year!
University Prep takes a proactive, prosocial approach to teaching students how to be responsible digital citizens within the learning and context of each class. Our teachers seize opportunities to engage with students about appropriate use, how to develop a critical eye when navigating the Internet, how much to share, what and when to post, and how to live in and engage in a community.
This year, I have helped to organize three events for Seattle Startup Week targeting a middle and high school youth audience. Students will have the opportunity to connect with Washington's biggest CEOs, and other like-minded peers, while getting a unique taste of Seattle’s start-up culture.
We are excited that our new daily schedule reflects many of the Challenge Success principles to allow our students to thrive.
Today is the official launch of the Puma Fund campaign! The UPrep faculty and staff have already reached 100% participation, and we hope you will also join in this community-wide effort.
What does it mean to be "in community?" Students are more than individuals when they attend school. They experience each school day in interaction with the people around them. Peers and adults both share and shape each moment of the school day. Shared moments reinforce students' memories of the events and expose them to diversity of thought. Community becomes defined by moments experienced with diverse groups of people.
