Rising 9th Graders/Families Encouraged to Join Nottingham Listserve

Dear rising 9th graders and their families,

If you are planning to attend Nottingham High School in September, please
consider joining the Nottingham listserve. It is identical to the Ed. Smith
listserve in that it’s a message board that informs students, parents, and
staff members of current district, school, and local events that would be
of interest to the Nottingham community.

If interested in joining, please contact Missy Giardine at
magiardine [at] gmail [dot] com. She will add your email to the Nottingham group.

In addition, there are additional resources to help keep everyone up to
speed regarding school functions, events, and news.

If you are a Facebook user, please bookmark our Nottingham High
School page. The link is the following: www.facebook.com/Notti
ngham.High.School.

Nottingham Friends of the Arts (FANS) also has a Facebook page where you
can see lots of pictures and information about Nottingham musical and
theater performances.

Their link: www.facebook.com/FANS-Friends-of-the-Arts-at-
Nottingham-High-School-199155516850982/

And lastly, please bookmark our FACES website, where you can catch up on
previous posts, schedules, and also learn all about the Nottingham FACES
organization. This link is as follows: www.nottinghamptso.org

Thank you and have a wonderful summer:)

Ed Smith: Reminder: ‘A Parent’s Guide to Social Media Safety’ is coming up Tuesday Morning!

June is Internet Safety Month. We hope you’ll join us for a pertinent topic this coming Tuesday morning.
View this email in your browser

A PARENT’S GUIDE TO
SOCIAL MEDIA SAFETY

Tuesday, June 27, 7:30-9 a.m.

Nottingham High School (Cafeteria)
3100 E. Genesee St., Syracuse

For children and their parents, social media can be beneficial in so many ways: helping young people develop self-expression, networking skills, technical expertise and an appreciation of different perspectives. Likewise, without proper oversight and guidance, it has a downside: fostering mood disorders, emotional detachment, social media addiction and oversharing, as well as prompting potentially dangerous issues with cyberbullying and stalking.

What can parents do to help today’s cybergeneration enjoy the benefits and avert the perils of online engagement?

Please join us for an important discussion with moderator Jeremy Cali, Onondaga County senior assistant district attorney and Special Victims Bureau chief, and panelists Chris Brown, superintendent of the West Genesee School District; Tracy Daige, high school counselor for the Syracuse City School District; and Maureen Foran-Mocete, outreach and education program coordinator for the McMahon/Ryan Child Advocacy Center.

Parking, the program and breakfast (provided by Café Kubal, Cathy’s Cookie Kitchen and Original Grain) are all free. R.S.V.P. now: smbsyracuse53.splashthat.com.

Presented by Social Media Breakfast Syracuse, the McMahon/Ryan Child Advocacy Center and F.A.C.E.S. of Nottingham.

Ed Smith Yearbook Information for the Listserv

Hello Edward Smith Families and Teachers,

The Edward Smith K-8 Yearbook was distributed Monday, 6/19, to all students and teachers who had purchased a yearbook. There are still yearbooks available for purchase and you can stop by the main office and speak with Michelle. The yearbooks are $11.00 cash or check made out to the Edward Smith K-8 PTO. We will continue to sell yearbooks until we run out of yearbooks and there will be parent volunteers also available Wednesday and Thursday morning. I could use one additional parent volunteer to help sell Edward Smith Yearbooks Thursday Morning from 7:45 a.m. until 9:00 a.m.. I have a student that is part of the 8th Grade Moving Up Ceremony and your help would be much appreciated, maybe a 6th or 7th Grade Parent.

If you can help sell yearbooks Thursday Morning, please text message me at 315-491-0612 or email me at kayascott [at] yahoo [dot] com.

Sincerely, Kay Scott, Parent Yearbook Editor and Yearbook Volunteer

Can still purchase an Ed Smith Yearbook and Distribution Day, Monday, June 19th

Dear Ed Smith Families, Teachers and Staff,

You can still purchase an Ed Smith Yearbook for $11.00. No order form needed just drop off payment, cash or check made out to the Ed Smith PTO in the Main Office to Michelle Demianenko with your name and how many yearbooks you would like to purchase in en envelope marked “Yearbook.”

The Middle School Students helped to design the 2016-2017 yearbook and the theme is “Creating our Story….” The students hope that the photos and the poems help share “their story” the story of the September 2016 to June 2017 School Year at Ed Smith K-8 School. In the yearbook you will find teacher, staff and student portraits, sports, music, the musical, clubs, mini academies, diversity, school celebrations, field trips, artwork, poetry, school spirit and so many memories.

So many students treasure there yearbooks for years to come. At the most recent Ed Smith School Memory Day Event, we had Alumni bringing back their yearbooks from the 1940’s. You too could own a piece of Ed Smith History for only $11.00. Order your yearbook now before they are sold out.

The Ed Smith Yearbooks will be distributed on Monday, June 19th and yearbooks will be sold as long as we have yearbooks to sell, up through the last day of school.

Sincerely, Kay Scott, Parent Volunteer
