Signing up for accounts on the web can be as simple as clicking one button. But if that website or service does not have a written data privacy agreement with Olympia, you may be giving away your personal information with a single click! Parents, talk to your kids about where they have created accounts. Remind them that the Student Acceptable Use Policy for Olympia states that they will not create an account with their district email address unless directed to do so by a teacher. By working together as a community we can drastically reduce the amount of data that we unnecessarily share with companies who look to sell that data to advertisers. #StrongerTogether See more at https://www.olympia.org/page/student-data-privacy

OMS had the opportunity to team up with OHS for our first annual “The Great Spartan Changeover: 8th Grade Transition Day''. The 8th graders visited OHS classrooms, played a Kahoot where they got to know OHS Teachers/Staff, competed in a scavenger hunt, participated in an activity with OHS student leaders, learned about how they can experience success in high school, and went on a tour of the school. Thank you to everyone who helped make this transition experience meaningful for our students!

The OHS boys track team had a great meet at the Eureka Invitational last Friday night. The Spartans finished 3rd place in the 14-team meet, scoring 79 points(only 8 points behind 1st place). Unfortunately, the meet was canceled due to lightning with 2 events remaining and Olympia was seeded to win one of them and to place in the top two in the other. Those points could have pushed the Spartans into 1st place. Nonetheless, it was a great team effort with many athletes performing big season-bests and 13 placers in 16 events. Top individuals were Keagan Uphoff (2nd in the 110 hurdles in a season-best 17.28 and 1st in the 300 hurdles at 42.92), Reygan Sitton (1st in the 100 in 11.69), Owen Dare (3rd in the 800 in a season-best 1:59.27), Brad Schardan (1st in the 400 in a season-best 51.72), Cooper Phillips (3rd in the 300 hurdles in 46.97), Logan Demling (4th in the 1600 in a season-best 4:51.08), Chase Ragar (4th in the triple jump at 37’ 11.5”), Skyler Biggs (4th in the shot put at 42’ 9”), and Chase Litwiller (1st in the high jump at 6’ 3”). Oly’s top relay finish was in the 3200 meter relay where they took 3rd place(Anthony Ragland, Logan Demling, Caden Clark, and Cooper Phillips).

Rewarding Relationships Video Link: bit.ly/olyRCv2 "It's complicated" can describe many of our relationships with others, both romantic and otherwise. Add digital devices and social media to the mix, and things get complicated even further. Help students take the first step toward building healthy and rewarding friendships and romantic relationships, both online and off. Students listen to other teens' thoughts and feelings about having and maintaining boundaries in friendships online, in a world of being constantly connected.

Develop Their Instincts Help kids learn to trust their guts so they can suss out creepy, risky, or otherwise unsafe online situations. Playact a few scenarios: What if someone asks to take a conversation private? What if someone asks for your phone number? What if someone invites you to a private chat room? Be aware that some kids (even "good" kids) will explore iffy stuff online out of curiosity. But the minute they feel uncomfortable, they need to shut things down.

Sexting and Relationships Video Link: bit.ly/olyRCv5 It's natural for teens to be curious about their emerging sexuality. But most children aren't prepared for the risks of exploring this in the digital age. Help your kids think critically about self-disclosure in relationships and practice how they'd respond to a situation where sexting -- or a request for sexting -- might happen. In this video, kids can hear other teens' honest -- and sometimes frank -- thoughts about the pressures and risks that come with sexting, then consider how they might react in similar situations.
