Screen Free Week

Dear Parents,

The Family Resource Center, along with Lockwood Schools, plans to participate in National Screen Free Week, April 29-May 5, 2019, together with thousands of other schools and communities nationwide. We encourage your whole family to participate in this experiment by leaving your television set(s), computer games, and gaming devices “off” for three or four days or the entire week.

The success of previous Screen Free Weeks demonstrates that a recess from television, hand held devices, computer games, etc. allows more time to converse, read, exercise, play, think, create and do. Children who participate tend to have higher grades, read more books, and exercise regularly. National Screen Free Week is about taking a healthy break to focus on activities that are more academically, socially and physically rewarding. It is also about having more fun.

The Family Resource Center would like to invite your family to join us in turning off the TV and computers. All kids that are successful will get treat and certificate of achievement for their participation.

Please help your child succeed in this volunteer effort by providing positive alternatives. Help your child complete this form and return it to your child’s teacher by Friday, April 26.

The Lockwood School Website is Device Friendly

The Lockwood School website at www.lockwoodschool.org is mobile and tablet friendly. The site adjusts to the screen size of the device that is being used and phone numbers are functional so the user can call a number directly from the phone. Links to Lockwood’s several social media accounts, such as the school and PTA Facebook pages, as well as the various school Twitter and Instagram accounts, are now available in the top navigation bar of all main areas of the site.

Drop-down navigation menus are available at the top of each main sector of the site. The quick links menu includes links to the school board, administration, family resource center, elementary and middle schools, food services and health services and other subdivisions of the site. Under the general interest dropdown visitors will find links to supply lists, lunch schedules, school board minutes, contact information, handbooks and much more. Other dropdown menus include the parent center, student center and staff center.

The welcome page has direct links to the monthly calendars and schedules for athletic events. Upcoming events at the school are posted one to two weeks before they occur and are updated almost daily. A direct link to the school newsletters, which include a school wide edition and an edition specific to the middle school, is located at the top right of the page. Newsletters are posted every two weeks.

You are invited to explore the Lockwood School website to see the many other options that are available. Contact the webmaster at grantd@lockwoodschool.org if you have questions or suggestions.
