Internet Safety Tips for Elementary School Kids

Keep your kids safe online

When your kids start to interact on the Internet -- playing games, watching YouTube videos, socializing in virtual worlds, getting homework help, and searching on Google -- you may feel that you're losing control over your kids' world.
The best way to wrap your arms around your kids' online activities is to spend some time with them while they're visiting their favorite sites. Talk with them about what they like and what they don't.

Why Internet safety matters

Kids today can go online from so many different sources, including video game consoles, iPhones and smart phones, and even handheld gaming devices. Young people are increasingly living their lives online, and their digital devices are some of their favorite toys and tools.
Shouldn’t this new playground be a safe and nice place? With your guidance, it can be. Teaching Internet safety in the elementary years will have lasting rewards for you and your kids.

Internet Safety Basics

Help your kids understand that they should:
  • Never share their names, schools, ages, phone numbers, or addresses;
  • Never send pictures to strangers;
  • Keep passwords private (except to parents);
  • Never open email from strangers – it may contain viruses that can harm a computer; and
  • Immediately tell an adult if something mean or creepy happens.

Strategies for a responsible -- and safer -- online life

  • Visit only age-appropriate sites. Check out the site before your kids visit it. Know what features and what content exist and make sure they’re good for your kids.
  • Search safely. Use safe search settings for young kids or think about applying filtering software to limit inappropriate exposure.
  • Avoid strangers. Tell your kids that people aren’t always who they say they are in cyberspace. Explain that if someone they don’t know talks to them, they shouldn’t respond but should let you know.
  • Be a good cyber citizen! Remind kids that an Internet playground is still a playground and they need to play nicely. A good rule of thumb: If they wouldn’t do something in real life, they shouldn’t do it online. Find out how your children can report mean behavior or unkind content on their favorite sites and teach them how to do it.
  • Online cheating? It’s still cheating and it’s a no-no – pure and simple.
  • Keep the computer in a central place. So you can see what’s going on.
  • Establish expectations and limits about the amount of time your children spend online and what they do. Check out our family media agreement for a helpful place to start.
  • View your own habits carefully. You are their role models.
  • But, mostly, be involved and have fun with them! Keeping kids safe and teaching them how to use digital technology responsibly is all about staying involved. Start by showing interest in the sites they visit and the games they play and your job will be a lot easier when they start exploring these technologies more independently.

Update on Eckerd College

1. SAT is not required for students who do not hold US passports.
2. TOEFL/IELTS is not required for students who have spent all of their high school experience in an English language high school. Students are asked to submit a copy of a graded paper instead.
3. Financial documents are no longer requested at the point of application. Students will be reviewed for admission and offered academic scholarships prior to providing proof of financial responsibility. 


Last year, our scholarships ranged from $5,000-$12,000. I'm very pleased to announce that our new awards range from $10,000-$18,000. Scholarships are awarded at the point of admission based on academic achievement

6 Ways to Make the Holidays More Meaningful

December offers families countless opportunities to bond and share lessons in faith and kindness. We've got six simple ways to help yours learn and grow this season.
Around the World Floor Puzzle
Help your kids get a sense of life in other countries by introducing them to a variety of holiday rituals celebrated around the globe during this time of year. A few examples for you to check out:
Ethiopia: Here, many families celebrate Christmas on January 7—though most people actually refer to the holiday as either Genna or Ganna, after a hockey-like game that is traditionally played on that afternoon.
The Netherlands: Children set out pairs of shoes on the eve of St. Nicholas Day, December 6. In the middle of the night, St. Nick pays a visit, filling the shoes with small treats such as chocolates, candies, and toys.
Italy: Kids write letters to their parents promising good behavior (and apologizing for recent misdeeds), as well as telling them how much they love them. The letters are then placed under Dad's plate on Christmas Eve; he reads them all aloud once the meal is through.
Mexico: December 28, Day of the Holy Innocents, is celebrated much in the same way as April Fool's Day. Children—and adults—play innocent pranks. If successful, the trickster gives his victim a candy treat.
Sweden: St. Lucia Day, December 13, is the beginning of the holiday season; one girl in each home dresses as Lucia, patron saint of light, in a white gown and a crown of leaves—and then wakes everyone by bringing a tray of breakfast treats.
Korea: Families celebrate January 1 by making Duk Gook—also spelled Ddeokguk—or rice-cake soup. According to tradition, enjoying a bowlful on New Year's Day allows everyone to advance a year in age.

MSU and Hope College Visit ( Nov.12th)

About MSU :

Spartans work every day to advance the common good in uncommon ways.
Together, we tackle some of the world’s toughest problems to find solutions that make life better—from alternative energy to better food safety to breakthrough medical and environmental applications achieved through rare isotope research.
We teach. We explore and we discover. We collaborate and lead. We innovate, inspire, and empower. We achieve our potential and create circumstances that help our students and others achieve theirs.
We're good at it, and we've been at it for more than 150 years.
The nation’s pioneer land-grant university, MSU began as a bold experiment that democratized higher education and helped bring science and innovation into everyday life. The revolutionary concept became a model for the nation.
Today, MSU is one of the top research universities in the world—on one of the biggest, greenest campuses in the nation. Home to nationally ranked and recognized academic, residential college, and service-learning programs, we’re a diverse community of dedicated students and scholars, athletes and artists, scientists and leaders.
In ways both practical and profound, we work to create a stronger, more sustainable, and more hopeful future for all.

About Hope :

Hope graduates are educated to think about life’s most important issues with clarity, wisdom, and a deep understanding of the foundational commitments of the historic Christian faith. They are agents of Hope who live faithfully into their vocations.
At this distinguished four-year liberal arts college, academic excellence and vibrant Christian faith join to strengthen each other in a supportive and welcoming community. While historically affiliated with the Reformed Church in America, Hope is ecumenically diverse and values open discussion of matters of faith and respect for the opinions of others.
The students and faculty we spoke with confirm that the school walks its talk; Hope College is both academically serious and theologically earnest.
Quality of teaching
Hope students find a faculty of professionally distinguished scholars who have a genuine concern for the total development of each student.  
Hope is one of only 10 church-related colleges and universities nationwide highlighted in the book Putting Students First: How Colleges Develop Students Purposefully. Our student: faculty ratio is 13:1.
Hope is among 50 colleges recommended by the Intercollegiate Studies Institute in its guide All-American Colleges: Top Schools for Conservatives, Old-Fashioned Liberals and People of Faith, which notes that “The students and faculty we spoke with confirm that the school walks its talk; Hope College is both academically serious and theologically earnest.”
Academic programs
Our 91 majors and minors in liberal arts and pre-professional fields provide unusual flexibility for students to combine their interests. Known as a powerhouse in the sciences, Hope is also the only private, liberal arts college to have national accreditation in art, dance, music and theatre.
Ranked 4th in the U.S. for research and creative activity
National leadership in collaborative faculty/student research and creative activity. Hope is consistently awarded more National Science Foundation grants for undergraduate research than any other liberal arts college in the country and was ranked fourth behind the University of Michigan, Stanford and MIT for undergraduate research and creative activity in the initial rankings by US News & World Report.
Diverse and accomplished students
During 2013-14 Hope enrolled 3,388 students from 39 states and territories and 34 different countries. We are a leading college for Fulbright Scholars, and our students can look forward to attending their first choice of graduate and professional schools.
The 2013 Fiske Guide to Colleges includes Hope as one of the country's best and most interesting colleges and universities, noting that "Hope's academic and athletic programs continue to grow and prosper."
Other guides and organizations that recognized Hope in the past year include the 39th edition of The Insider's Guide to Colleges, the America's Top Colleges guide published by Forbes Magazine and The Princeton Review, which cited Hope among the "Best in the Midwest."
Hope College is one of only 280 colleges and universities in the country and eight in Michigan to have a chapter of Phi Beta Kappa, the nation's oldest scholastic honorary society. Hope's chapter was chartered in 1971.

Tips for Parents

Tips for Parents: Questions to Ask Your Child about Their Day

Get a sense of your child’s life at school by asking questions that elicit more than a one-word response. Try one of these conversation starters:
  • Tell me about the best part of your day.
  • What was the hardest thing you had to do today?
  • Did any of your classmates do anything funny? Tell me about what you read in class.
  • Who did you play with/hang out with today? What did you do? Do you think ________(insert subject here) is too hard?
  • What’s the biggest difference between this year and last year?
  • What rules are different at school than at home? Do you think they’re fair?
  • Who did you sit with at lunch?
  • Can you show me something you learned or did today?

Common Application Updates

Green Checks. Occasionally, a green check might not display even after a section is complete. Students who encounter this problem should contact the Help Center. The Support Team can fix the issue quickly.
Date Stamp Questions. As a rule, submission date and time stamps are recorded in Eastern Time.  In some instances, these time stamps are defaulting to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT). Since GMT is several hours earlier than Eastern Time, some late evening submissions may display as the following day.  Do not be alarmed if you see this. The submission time stamp will always be recorded accurately, even if the time zone reflected is incorrect.

Help Center Information. We are responding promptly to new applicant and recommender tickets, and we continue to work through a backlog of older tickets. You can help us help you in two ways:
  • Please do not submit new requests about an unresolved, existing issue.
  • Please do not reply to messages about unresolved issues and request progress updates.
Both of these actions will slow down our ability to help you and your students.  The first introduces confusion to the process. The second resets your place in the support queue.  If you have an outstanding issue, we assure you we will respond, and we request your patience.

Recommender Accounts. Earlier today we identified the cause of a problem that is preventing some recommenders from creating accounts. We are developing a fix for this issue and expect to release it later this week. 

Internet Explorer 9. Some recommenders have reported that they can only see two colleges listed for each of their students. This issue is unique to IE9. If you encounter this situation, please try another browser.

Student List. When using the Recommendation System, counselors, teachers, and other recommenders may notice that a student name does not appear on the student list under the Students tab. 
  • COUNSELORS: Make sure that the student hasinvited you and not just listed your name in the Education tab of the application.      
  • TEACHERS/RECOMMENDERS: Make sure that the student has invited AND assigned you from within the application.  
No Visible Submit Button. When using the Recommendation System, counselors will be able to submit school forms only after all required questions on the form and on the Profile screen are completed and saved. The submit button will not be visible on the recommendation until the Profile screen is complete.

Unable to Login to New Account. We have received reports of cases where recommenders are able to create an account but are then not able to log in via the Recommender tab. If this is the case for you, please contact the Help Center at for assistance.
Deadline Changes. Some colleges are extending their deadlines to alleviate the anxiety that students and counselors are feeling in trying to meet application deadlines. The deadline dates in the Common Application system and on the Requirements Grid are updated daily and reflect the latest information that we have received from our members.  
Application Submitted. Given the issues that some students experienced with the payment submission process, we want to help ensure that all students who think they have submitted an application have actually submitted. Please have your students confirm that their applications have been submitted by checking their Dashboard. There will be a green check mark in the "Application" column for each submitted application. 

Parchment. As we announced yesterday, Parchment integration with the Common App is complete. Students are able to select Common App as a transcript destination on and sending institutions may send transcripts to Common App via Parchment Exchange.

Some Famous Parenting Quotes

Parents might feel like they’re traversing an ever-changing landscape of parenting issues, with modern problems like cyber-bullying and rising celebrity culture providing new challenges. But while the world evolves at a rapid rate, the best parenting advice stands the test of time. These 10 parenting quotes are as relevant today as they were when they were first spoken.
“Children are educated by what the grown-up is and not by his talk.” –Carl Jung
Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung was best known for his theories about personalities, but raising five children may have been his proudest achievement. Jung knew you can’t simply tell your kids what to do—you must lead by example.
“Parents can only give good advice or put them on the right paths, but the final forming of a person's character lies in their own hands.” –Anne Frank
Sadly she never lived to raise her own children, but Holocaust victim Anne Frank still knew a thing or two about parenting. Perhaps her family’s struggles taught her that no parent can guarantee a child’s success or failure. Instead she recognized the wisdom and morals parents can pass on to their offspring. While these tools will give children the best start, it’s ultimately up to them how they’re used.
“If you have never been hated by your child, you have never been a parent.” –Bette Davis
The silver screen icon was all too aware of the downsides of being a parent. No doubt this mom of three had to make some hard decisions at home. There’s nothing glamorous about those occasions when your angels are cursing you out for laying down the law. Their behaviour can sting, but don’t let that weaken your resolve. The best parents know they can’t play the good cop all the time.
“It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men.” –Frederick Douglass
African-American abolitionist and author Frederick Douglass knew of the importance of a strong foundation. Children thrive when they’re challenged, given responsibility and encouraged to assume leadership roles. Strong children will inevitably become strong adults.
“One thing I had learned from watching chimpanzees with their infants is that having a child should be fun.” –Jane Goodall
Parents face enormous pressure from the moms and dads around them, and themselves. But don’t let it get to you. Jane Goodall, a primatologist and mother of one, saw we’re not so different than our animal friends. Just like the chimps, we should appreciate the joys of the present rather than obsessing about the uncertainty of the future and the failures of the past.  
“The best way to make children good is to make them happy.” –Oscar Wilde
The Irish writer didn’t have his own children, but he has a point here: Children who behave the best tend to be the happiest. Those who feel neglected, misunderstood or under pressure are the ones who typically act out. Discipline is important of course, but it should never be the overriding force in a child’s life.

Nurturing Your Child's Creativity

Here are some tips to inspire creative thinking:

  • Shop for toys that are interactive and can be used more than one way. Instead of coloring books, provide construction paper and crayons; instead of talking figures, help your child make up silly voices for plain-jane dolls and stuffed animals; instead of buying toys that only do one thing, show how wooden blocks and household items can become just about anything with a little imagination.
  • Improvise. Instead of running to the store the next time your child wants something, think about ways to create what you need. Could a laundry basket and a football be a basketball set? Could you make kneepads from bubble wrap and duct tape? Instead of stepping in immediately to solve her problems, brainstorm together and encourage her to take a risk. It’s okay if her ideas don’t always work; independent thinkers need to learn resiliency, too.
  • Encourage confidence, not conformity. So one sock’s blue and the other one’s red; so her bird has three wings. If you want to raise an original thinker, praise originality.
  • Turn off the TV! (Come on, you knew that was coming.) Read stories and get them involved: “What would you do? How do you think that makes him feel?”) Ask them to tellyou a story. Close the book and make up a story or repeat a classic folk tale; without illustrations, their imagination will run wild.
  • Give ‘em time to daydream. Kids who race from school to scheduled activity to play-date don’t have the time to engage their imaginations. Let them be bored once in a while; they may surprise you with what they can dream up.
Need more ideas? Use your imagination!
