TMS STUDENT STORE
The Trafford Middle School student store will be open Wednesdays during the school year. The store is located in the cafeteria and offers an assortment of school supplies. We are also selling “Spirit Wear”from Natales' to show our support for the Penn Trafford School District. These are the same items that we sold during our open house in August. The store is being operated by our Middle School Student Council members under the supervision of adult volunteers.
CREATING RESPONSIBLE KIDS ON SMARTPHONES
“If you can’t explain it to a six year old, you don’t understand it yourself.”
- Albert Einstein
Life for a teenager is vastly different than it was ten years ago. Teens and Tweens today have an unlimited access to information, apps and websites that can be wonderfully helpful, but also lead to concerning behaviors if parents and educators don’t have the knowledge to teach young people how to behave responsible in this new cyber-playground.
Awareness is the key to learning and learning leads to knowledge. And knowledge is power, so they say. Einstein once said, “If you can’t explain it to a six year old, you don’t understand it yourself.” There are many six year olds out there explaining cyber-devices and cyber-practices to adults. Let me help flip the equation for you.
If you saw a text message a teen had sent in cryptic lingo would you know what they were talking about?
Do you know of the latest apps/sites such as?
Facebook Tumblr Snapchat Instagram Sarhah VSCO Oovoo Omegle Kik Ask.fm
“Creating Responsible Kids on Smartphones”
This training defines categories of social networking that teacher and parents should be aware of and listening for with their students and children. The presentation will review image boards, untraceable texting/sexting, internet predators, gossip/rumor spreading, video chatting, blogs, eating disorders, self-harm and suicide. The most current social media sites such as Instagram, Sarahah, VSCO, Tumblr, Kik, and Snapchat will be defined and youth culture and mental health practices on these sites/apps will be discussed. This presentation will raise the awareness of teen culture on the internet and how adults can communicate and educate with youth to be responsible digital citizens

As you do your back to school shopping, please think of Penn-Trafford's Backpacks-to-Go Program. The Penn Trafford Backpacks-to-Go Program is a supplemental nutrition program provides a backpack filled with meals and snacks every other weekend to district children enrolled in the program, made possible through donations from community members, businesses, organizations, and churches in the surrounding area, and PT staff. If you would like to make a monetary, gift card, food or backpack donation, please contact Lauren Traill at email@example.com or 724-744-2161 or Lisa Popovich at firstname.lastname@example.org or 724-744-0302. If you feel that your child could benefit from receiving a backpack during the 2018-19 school year, please contact Mrs. Traill or Mrs. Popovich.
STUDENT ASSISTANCE PROGRAM
What is the Student Assistance Program?
The Student Assistance Program is designed to provide various services to meet your child’s social, emotional, behavioral, and academic needs. The primary goal of the Student Assistance Program is to identify students at risk and help those students to overcome barriers in order for them to be successful in their everyday lives.
Another goal of the Student Assistance Program is to facilitate collaboration between home and school and provide interventions and/or referrals to internal or external support services in order to address student needs.
Please see brochure link below:
We are collecting box tops for Trafford Middle School. This is the first time we are collecting in the middle school. I'm hoping it will be as successful as it is in the elementary schools. Any box top donations would be greatly appreciated. If your are able to donate, please have your child bring the box tops to my classroom (room 215).
