Jewell Barnes and Anca Coanda share “Pause Before You Post” with Cascade students.
On Monday, February 13th, the Mark Morris FBLA chapter presented “Pause Before You Post” at Cascade Middle School. This presentation taught kids about social media and raised awareness of how, with a small click of the button, you can change a life in a drastic way. The leaders of the project, Hanna Cargill and Jewell Barnes, presented “Pause Before You Post” with the support of their FBLA chapter. This project was aimed at Middle schoolers because they are the most vulnerable and likely to be influenced by others. Mark Morris FBLA will present this project at the FBLA State Conference in April.
At its November 14th regular meeting, the Longview School Board of Directors celebrated Mark Morris’ receipt of the National Let’s Move Active School Award and a 2016 National Healthy Schools Bronze Award conferred by the Alliance for a Healthier Generation. The Bronze award recognizes Mark Morris’ commitment to follow district policy to provide healthier food selections in machines and the student store; to provide opportunities for students to be physically active; to promote staff health and wellness and to install water bottle filling stations to increase access to drinking water. PE teachers Shawn Perkins, Bill Bakamus, Lori Clark, and district PE coordinator Lisa Kloke displayed the award on behalf of the school.
Teachers will be available to meet with parents between noon and 6:00 p.m. on Monday, November 21st. Teachers will be set up, arena style, in the cafeteria. This is a wonderful opportunity for you to meet with your student’s teachers to discuss class expectations, curriculum or student progress. Out of courtesy for others, please plan to keep conversations 3 – 5 minutes in length. First quarter report cards will be distributed during conferences. Students will be released at 10:50 each day and will operate on the schedule below.
In addition, we will have barrels out to collect non-perishable food items for the Mark Morris Pride Pantry. This Pride Pantry will provide food items for low-income students to take home for the weekend. FBLA is developing this important program here at Mark Morris and would appreciate your support.
