Oly 6th graders completed a STEM project where they researched and created a food truck business. In Math, students created their food truck's menu, researched costs associated with their food options, and budgeted the endeavor from the ground up. In ELA, students chose creative tasks which helped to promote their food truck business. In Science, students designed their food truck-inside and out- from an engineering perspective. In SS, students used census data to determine the best market for their food truck operation. Awesome work, Spartans!

Social media offers a chance to choose how we present ourselves to the world. We can snap and share a pic in the moment or carefully stage photos and select only the ones we think are best. Listen as students reflect on how this impacts their lives. http://bit.ly/Oly2DFV4

Who are you?
Video: bit.ly/Oly2DFV3 Lots of students are exploring and developing their own identities, and they often do this online and on social media. Some kids use multiple accounts, each for a different audience, but with this, what’s real and what’s unrealistic can often get blurred. In this video, your kids can hear other teens talk about the ins and outs of presenting themselves to others online, and consider what it means to “be yourself” in digital spaces.

Forming an identity is a big part of being a middle schooler. Most students are working it out through experimentation, with plenty of awkward missteps and mistakes along the way. It's a normal, natural part of growing up. But in the age of social media, this part of adolescence can be tough -- both for kids to navigate and for adults to understand. New social media platforms come and go, often with features designed to captivate young users right in the midst of figuring out just who they are.
