November is a time for festivity, seasonal treats, and family togetherness. November is also Child Safety and Protections Month: a critical time to reflect on children’s safety in and out of the classroom. This month, along with recipes and holiday shopping, school communities will meditate on topics that relate to children’s welfare, including their safety online.

A Technology Specialist's insights on teaching the "whole child" with technology.
At our school, we believe in one thing above all else: You must teach the whole child. All day, every day, no exceptions. It’s like Maslow's hierarchy of needs: If children don’t have their financial, emotional, or basic human needs met, they won’t be able to learn. At least not in any meaningful way.
This is the way we approach learning at Seatack ES, An Achievable Dream Academy. We have what some might call a unique approach to education. Kids in our program are given opportunities and access to certain extracurricular activities that, along with remediation, they simply wouldn’t receive within a regular public school program.
