Each year as it turns to Spring, I have to remind our students about following the school rules to ensure that we have a safe and orderly climate on our campus. It also appears that I need to remind all parents to be responsible drivers when they are coming to and from the campus. Last week I had the opportunity to do morning duty down on Stevens and San Rodolfo. Here is what I noticed. Parents would come down the hill after dropping off their students and instead of stopping and waiting at the red light (which is required from 7-9 a.m. and 2-4 p.m.), they would turn right on to Stevens. I also noticed numerous parents driving down San Rodolfo looking at their phones in their hands. If we are going to raise our children to be responsible and safe individuals with their phones, we adults must set the example, and that should always include when we are driving. It is very easy to think that we can peak at our phones for just a moment, but that quick distraction could easily result in an accident or in injuring an adult or student that is walking or riding their bike. Finally, I have been notified that there are many parents zooming on to the campus right before the bell rings to make sure their children are not tardy. I might suggest you leave a few minutes early so that you don’t have to speed in the campus parking lot. Let’s all slow down and make sure that we are present and focused when we are driving, keeping our students and staff safe.
Author Jean Twenge Visits Solana Beach!
Solana Beach PTA is bringing nationally renowned professor, speaker and author, Jean Twenge, to Solana Beach on Tuesday, April 3, 2018. Ms. Twenge wrote “iGen: Why Today’s Super-Connected Kids are Growing up Less Rebellious, More Tolerant, Less Happy--and Completely Unprepared for Adulthood--and What That Means for the Rest of Us.” Our children, and those born in the mid-1990s to the mid-2000s and later, are the first generation (iGen) to spend their entire adolescence in the age of the smartphone, and their generation is very different from any generation before them. We encourage families to bring their children who are in 4th grade and up to join us from 6:00 – 7:30 p.m. The presentation will be held at Earl Warren’s multipurpose room.
