Automotive Students Take
a Break to get a Manicure
by Andrea Aguirre
Seven students in the Career and Technical Education
Center’s Collision and Repair program volunteered to
get their nails done by students in the cosmetology class.
Sage Dart, Paul Sullivan and Jesse Graff were 3 out of 7
students who got their nails done during class.
Cosmetology students needed some volunteers to
practice doing manicures. “The teacher didn’t say we
Automotive/Collision Repair students Sage Dart, Paul Sullivan and Jesse Graff.
were volunteering to get our nails done, so many of the
students in the Repair Program volunteered,” Paul Sullivan said.
Many students who get their nails done for the first time think it’s nerve racking, and others think it’s exciting and
enjoyable. “It was better than I expected it to be, and it was something very relaxing,” said Sage Dart.
After seeing that male students got their nails done and hearing that it wasn’t as bad as males thought it was, it has
motivated other students at Arapahoe Ridge High School who have never experienced this process to try it out and see how
getting their nails done goes. “Being able to experience what many people do getting manicures and being able to feel it for
ourselves was a very different and exciting process. I’m definitely willing to try this again,” Sage Dart concluded.
In final consideration, the students that got their nails done had a good experience, and people who have not tried this
should consider it. It might be an enjoyable thing to do. n

GSA Creates
Greater
Acceptance
by Morgan Perry
GSA, which stands for Gay Straight
Alliance, is a support group for gays,
lesbians, bisexuals and transgendered
students, as well as anyone who
supports these students. Julie Graff is the
coordinator for the group, and they meet every Wednesday,
flipping between “A” and “B” lunch. Julie came to this
school and when she did, she was asked to take over the
group. Most Boulder Valley School District schools have a
GSA group. Julie said, “This group has been very successful
and makes the students feel supported and safe. They know
that there is a group of students on this campus fighting for
their rights also.”
In GSA they talk about a lot of different things. Every
week there is a different topic. However, one of the goals is
to make sure everyone in the room knows each other. They
start the group off by going around the room and having
everyone introduce themselves. Then they ask students to
reveal whether or not they fall into, or if they are acquainted
with anyone, who falls into any GLBTIQ categories. They
also make sure that everyone knows what GLBTIQ means
and stand for. GLBTIQ stands for Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual,
Transgender, Intersex, and Queer/Questioning. For example,
a few weeks ago they talked about “Transphobic words,”
and what is offensive and what isn’t. A few things that are
not okay to say are words like “tranny” and questions like
“What is your REAL name? I mean the one you were given
at birth?” These things are not okay.
This brings us to a transgendered student at our school,
Mimi Sneed, who loves being here for our accepting and
safe environment. She said, “In school I feel completely
supported, by my teachers, administration, and the students.”
Although there is always that one person who isn’t
supportive, she still feels it is a smaller school where she
can connect with people more easily and she can also get
back on track with her credits. Mimi chose to come to this
school, which really says a lot about Arapahoe Ridge. Most
transgendered people prefer certain pronouns, but not all of
them. Mimi made it very clear what she prefers. “Female,
she, her and hers,” Mimi asserted.
Administration and the people of this school are doing
a great job with making students feel like this is a safe
environment where anyone can express themselves without
being judged. n

The New Chicks on Campus
by Selena Martinez
Yes, there are chickens here at Boulder Valley School District’s Career
and Technical Education Center, and they’re part of the Agriculture
program. The classes are taught by Ms. Heather Riffel. Two of the chicks
were hatched and raised here, and ten of them were donations from the 4H
club brought here as grown chickens, not raised as little chicks. There are a
few plans already for the chickens and their purpose here on campus.
They are located on the outside of the building, right by the green house.
The students in the class all participate in taking care of the chickens
together. They feed them daily and clean up their little home.
They have their own area to be together in a shed to lay eggs and hang
out. The dominant chicken’s name is Buffalo, and she runs the pack. She is very feisty with all the other chickens. Two of the
newer chickens have to be kept separate from the others, or there will be frequent chicken fights.
Ms. Riffel’s academic plans with these include a lot. Having students learn (agricultural anatomy of the chicken) is a great
experience and gives a different look on food. The class teaches about food collection with the eggs and also slaughtering
the chickens. Within the next week the class is going to be selling the eggs here at the school, and in winter, students will
slaughter two chickens and the rest throughout the remainder of the school year. Having a profitable, practical purpose for the
chickens teaches the students about business and farming, and how to have a agricultural profitable business.
The class is going to be really humane with regard to the slaughter of the chickens, and it will be a very educational
experience for the students. (Seeing where their food actually comes from, how it lives, and how it dies to become food.)
Chris Smithee says, “It’s part of life and I don’t mind.”
They will be hatching eggs in the spring, but if any roosters survive, they will slaughter them, too. The chickens will be
given to the cooking class, so they can also learn how to
cook a freshly killed chicken. The food will be eaten by
the teachers and students of both classes.
Urban Agriculture student Chris Smithee.
On Oct. 4th there were 204 fourth graders who came to the
Greenhouse program for a field trip, to visit and to get a better
understanding about where their food originates. It allowed the kids
to connect with their food and agriculture. They learned how the
food they eat comes from an animal. For an example, they showed
the kids that the breakfast they eat is laid by a chicken. Greenhouse
students went into depth about how eggs are laid, which are
fertilized, and how they become hatched or stay eggs. n

Bathroom Escort Policy:
Different Rules Apply
To Different Schools
by Veronica Castro
Luis Figueroa, a senior from Broomfield High
School, attends the Criminal Justice program at
Boulder Valley School District’s Career and Technical
Education Center. When he reflected on why he is
taking Criminal Justice, he said, “I want to become a
cop. My best friend and I are really looking forward
to be part of the police department one day.”
Since Luis is only at CTEC for half days, and it is
Gabriela Rodriguez and Luis Figueroa
his first year attending the TEC program, he was not
are students in the CTEC Criminal Justice program.
aware of the bathroom policy rules until he had to be
walked to the bathroom by an escort. “I feel awkward and hurried knowing there is someone waiting for me to be done with
my needs outside the restroom,” Luis said.
At Broomfield High School, as well as other schools, students have the opportunity to use the bathroom whenever they ask
permission, as long as they don’t take advantage. Arapahoe Campus rules are very different, and that does not appeal to many
students. Having someone wait outside the restrooms can be very uncomfortable, and some people even feel rushed.
Luis is against that rule. “I think they should trust us more and give everyone a chance to go to the restroom whenever they
need to go,” Luis said. “They should change the escort rule.”
The rule was made for many reasons, but some students would like to see it changed. Some feel that if administration
would give the students the privilege to take care of their needs when needed, it would give students the chance to make wise
decisions, and if students fail to follow the rules, there would still need to be consequences. “If they want students to act like
young adults, maybe they should start treating us like young adults, not kids,” Luis concluded. n

Beber y Conducir… ¿Cuándo va a parar?
Por Destiny Escobar
A mi no me gusta conducer ebria, y no me gusta que mis amigos hagan eso tampoco. Se pueden matar en su auto y
matar a otros también. Tenemos que detener esto. Y aquí tienes algunas razones por las que es importante que lo hagamos.
Los adolescentes en todas partes salen por la noche y se emborrachan totalmente. Entonces deciden conducir teniendo
una oportunidad cada vez de ser atrapados e incluso virar y golpear a alquien. Así es que nos unimos y hacemos que los
estudiantes tomen conciencia de cuales son los peligros reales. Juntos podemos cambiar la manera en que los adolescents actúan hoy en día y ellos pueden volver a comportarse como deberían y mantenerse a si mismos fuera de peligro.
Aunque yo nunca lo he hecho personalmente, yo he sido testigo de muchos casos en que mis amigos han recibido un
DUI (conducir bajo la influencia del licor); se les ha arruinado totalmente la vida. Ellos no pueden conseguir un trabajo.
Les es difícil conseguir incluso un apartamento. Yo soy testigo de que a mi amigo se le niega que rente una vivienda
debido a esta clase de problemas.
En conclusión, creo que todos deberíamos ser más cuidadosos de nuestro tiempo. Beber licor cuando eres menor
de 21 años simplemente no es la mejor decisión a largo plazo. En general, te estoy pidiendo que ayudes a mantener a
nuestros jovenes fuera de peligro y a que te unas a difundir la palabra. n
İPerdóname Ama!
En medio del pasillo
Me sentía bien perdida
Pasaba todo el mundo
Estaba enloquecida
Sacaba mi coraje
peleando con mi hermana
Pensaba
Mi vida es nada
Sin poder entender
Bajo mi ignorancia
Mi jefita sufría
Por toda mi infancia
Un día me sento
Me dijo, “No seas ignorante. ¿Crees
que
A mi me gusta andar cuidando niños?”
Tú sabes de la vida
Me dijo mi jefita
Deja de fumar
Y también esa bebida
Si no te compones,
Quien sabe donde
Vas a acabar…
Por tu propia voluntad
Te irás a destrozar
Y esas amiguitas que se dicen ser
familia
Nomás lo que te enseñan son
Puras grocerias y tonterias
Dime cuantas veces te han ayudado
Nomás lo que te enseñan es
Como andar en lado a lado
Perdóname Ama
No te quise lastimar
El amor que tú me diste
No lo voy a encontrar
Me mandabas a la escuela
Y yo me iba de pinta
Con mis amigas
En la casa de mi amiga
Me la pasaba todo el tiempo
Le entrabamos a todo
Nosotros no teníamos miedo
Nosotras no teníamos quien nos mandara
Pero todo llegó a su fin
Me mandaron con Juez.
Quize hacer un jale
Pero no pude conseguir
No quise escuchar los consejos que
me dió mi madre
Ahora estoy en problemas con la
chota
En medio de la corrida no sé que pasó
Corrí pa’ el otro lado y la juda me
alcanzó
“No te muevas”, me dijo.
Yo aquí soy el más chinón.
İY me arrestó!
Después de ese día,
Otra vida empezó…
Cuando iba a la corte
6
Pense en mi jefita…
Hora si la regué
Yo me acuerdo que mi amigo me
decía,
“No seas bruta, no hay amigos que te
saquen de ese pulcro.”
Encerrada en mi cuarto, sufría un
gran dolor por fallarle
a mi jefita.
Ya no sé que hacer
Mi vida esta perdida
Pagaré las consecuencias,
Ya no habrá salida.
En la calle fuí chinona
Pero en la corte
Solamente soy
Un simple número
Como las otras prisioneras.
Aunque no supe lo que le hacía
A mi jefita
Si andaba de callejera
Hoy encerrada en mi cuarto
Pensando en que hacer
Si me hubiera yo quedado en clase
A hacer el bien
Por eso yo les digo sigan
Buenos pasos
Hay que hacer cumplido pues sigan
Estudiando
Yo destrocé el corazón de mi madre
La que me dió su sangre
La que me dió a luz y
Yo le pagué rompiéndole el corazón
Sufriré toda mi vida, por haberle
hecho esto a mi madre
Solo Dios sabrá
Donde mi suerte cairá… n
Shakespeare Performance at ARHS
by Colten Steele
On the day of October 1st, 2012 I sat down with Ms. Reali, the Journalism teacher at Arapahoe Ridge High School, to
discuss the Shakespeare play that took place in the ARHS café on Thursday, September 27th.
This play is called Twelfth Night, by William Shakespeare. It was able to happen because of Clair Broaddus, a former
Language Arts Teacher at ARHS. She wrote out a grant that brought it here for everyone to witness. In this play, there are
11 characters total. However, there were only two actors and one actress to make up for the remainder of the characters. The
three performers are from Colorado State University.
Before the play was presented, there was a workshop. The three Shakespeare performers went to Ms.Reali’s classroom to
rehearse the play for one of her classes. “It was so good for the kids to see,” said Reali.
Many people are being bullied at Arapahoe Campus day by day, without any direction. The majority of this population is
High School students. It is hard to determine who is getting bullied without actually seeing it happen. That just so happens
to be the message of this Shakespeare play: anti-bullying. “I think it’s still an issue today. I’m glad this performance was
brought to our school,” stated Reali.
After this play concluded, it was greatly recognized that the three Shakespeare Performers were nothing short of
experts at what they do. In the play, there were 11 characters total, yet only the 3 of them were able to act out every single
character.” It was outstanding and the workshops were very useful,” said Ms. Reali. After watching them perform, it may be
safe to say that many people could genuinely agree. n
Student Council
by Jesus Dominguez
At Arapahoe Ridge High School, the student council group has a new sponsor, Mr. Byron Thompson. Mr. Thompson
is also a World History and World Geography teacher at Arapahoe, and this year Mr. Thompson is attempting to make the
school a “green” school through his work with student council.
The students who are were the group first quarter - Tiana Roberts, Ben Nagler, Martin Tremillo-Perez and Edgar
Ramirez - went around the whole school recycling with Mr. Thompson’s help. By helping the school recycle, they help the
school become a “green” school.
Student Council has a lot of roles at school, like recycling, coming up with activities, helping the student body, helping
the teachers with what they need, and doing some things to honor the seniors who will be graduating in 2013. Student
council is attempting to infuse ARHS with school spirit by organizing a school dance. They started off by distributing
surveys to every ARHS student in the week of September 10.
The sponsor said that there are really no new things coming up because he is new and he is barely starting to understand
the program. The leader of this group has not made any changes in the program, because he is new to it and is trying to
understand it a little bit more first. “No, I haven’t made any changes,” said Mr. Thompson.
Mr. Thompson thinks that if they are able to let the kids know what Student Council does, then they can get more
students involved. “If we let the students know that we want to bring the school together, [we’ll] have a better sense of
community,” says Mr. Thompson.
While Mr. Thompson learns this group’s role even better, Student Council will continue to improve our campus. n

Notes from
Carmen Faucette, Community Liason
Hello everyone!
¡Saludos para todos!
As we begin the second quarter of the school
l
year, I want to thank all the parents that are participating
in the Reading Group within our Latino Parent Bimonthly Groups. Our first meeting was held on October
4th. We had good parent participation, but we always
want more parents to join our group! The meetings are
conducted in English and Spanish and the books we
read are also published in both languages. The name of
the book we are reading is “EL Llano en Llamas” from
Juan Rulfo or “The Burning Plain” the English title.
The future dates for these meetings are: December 13th,
February 7th, and April 4th from 5:30-7:00 PM, please
join us!
We are also having conversations about forming a group
of parents who will receive nutrition classes sponsored
by the Colorado State University Extension SNAP-Ed.
These classes will be offered at our campus next spring,
and are totally free of charge. Please join the group for
more information.
l
I want to thank all the teachers for their flexibility with allowing, in some cases almost the entire
class attend the dental screening this week. Also want to
thank Robin for organizing the event and Ben for escorting students back to classrooms. This year the dental
screening was the best ever!
We screened a total of 35 students and we are already
working on sending the referrals to see a dentist.
It wouldn’t have been possible without your help.
Thanks again.
l
Parents we also need your help encouraging yur
Latina student to attend the LaTEENa conference at
Regis University on Saturday, October 27th. We’ll be
gone all day and the girls will have an opportunity to see
themselves in a college campus participating with other
girls in leadership workshops and listening to motivational speakers.
If you have any questions please call me
at 720-561-5501
l Al empezar el segundo cuarto del año escolar,
quisiera aprovechar esta oportunidad para agradecer
a todos los padres de familia que asistieron a nuestro
primer Grupo de Lectura dentro del Grupo Bimensual de
Padres Latinos el pasado 4 de octubre. Tuvimos buena
asistencia y participación de los padres de familia presentes, ¡pero quisiéramos que todos los padres de familia participaran en este grupo! Los grupos son bilingües,
en inglés y en español y los libros que leemos también
han sido publicados en ambos idiomas. El nombre del
libro que estamos leyendo es “EL Llano en Llamas” de
Juan Rulfo. Las fechas futuras del grupo de padres son:
13 de diciembre, 7 de febrero y 4 de abril de 5:30-7:00
PM. ¡Por favor acompáñenos!
Se iniciaron conversaciones con los padres de familia
sobre la formación de un grupo de clases de nutrición
patrocinadas por la universidad, Colorado State University Extension SNAP-Ed la primavera entrante. Se
ofrecerán aquí en nuestro campus y son totalmente
gratuitas. Se dará más información durante los grupos
de padres en las fechas ya mencionadas.
l También quisiera agradecer a todos los maestros de
Arapahoe Ridge por su flexibilidad al permitir a sus estudiantes salir de sus clases, en algunos casos casi toda
la clase salió durante la revisión dental el pasado martes
16 de octubre. También quiero agradecer a Robin por la
organización del evento y a Ben por regresar a los estudiantes a sus clases después de la revisión. ¡La revisión
dental fue todo un éxito!
Treinta y cinco estudiantes fuero revisados y estamos
trabajando en enviar al dentista a los estudiantes que
necesitan trabajo dental.
Este evento fue un esfuerzo comunitario y no hubiera
sido posible sin la ayuda de todo el personal de la escuela.
l Por último, padres de familia necesitamos su ayuda
para alentar a sus hijas a que asistan a la conferencia
LaTEENa en la universidad Regis el 27 de octubre.
Pasarán todo el día en el campus universitario y tendrán
oportunidad de participar en talleres de liderazgo con
otras chicas y escucharán ponentes motivadores.
Si tuvieran alguna pregunta por favor llámenme
al 720-561-5501.
Thank you,

Tattoos and Piercings
at Arapahoe Ridge High School by Hannah Cameron
Theresa Reali, a 38-year-old English teacher, is “all inked
up.” She got her first tattoo at the age of 13, and has been
adding on to her ink collection ever since. Theresa explains
to me her favorite and least favorite tattoos, “My least
favorite tattoo is the first one I ever got. I had my friend
tattoo a cross on my right hand, and I’m not even a religious
person.” Her favorite tattoo is one of her most recent ones:
her nephew’s handprint on her upper left arm.
When I asked Theresa at what age she thought it was
appropriate for a kid to get a tattoo, her response was, “I
think 18 is reasonable. However, if I had kids and if they
were well behaved, I would use tattoos to reward them if
their tattoo was reasonable and appropriate.” I asked her if
she wants to get more tattoos and she said that she would
like to finish her half sleeve on her left arm.
Morgan and Theresa both agreed that getting your
significant other’s name tattooed on your body would not be
a smart idea. n
Tattooing is an odd and beautiful form of art, very
interesting and more expressive of sentiment than any other
thing. It’s more fascinating than costly jewelry and cannot
be lost, borrowed, or stolen. It’s a moment we can keep
throughout life and retain after death.
Many students on the Arapahoe Ridge High School
campus have one or more tattoos. Morgan Perry got her
tattoo when she was sixteen, “I got my daughter’s name, her
date of birth, and her handprint tattooed on the back of my
left shoulder.” Morgan is one of many students with a tattoo
on campus.
Morgan does plan on getting more tattoos. For her next
one, she will get the lung cancer ribbon on her side with her
grandmother’s name, as well as her grandmother’s date of
birth and death. “I also want to get my tongue pierced,” she
says, after counting all seven of her piercings. When I asked
Morgan at what age she would allow her kids to get their
first tattoos, and she said when they turn sixteen.
Students aren’t the only people on campus with tattoos.
CU Tutors Help at Arapahoe Ridge High School
Fourteen University of Colorado
students are working toward completion
of their service learning projects this
semester by volunteering as ARHS tutors,
enriching their own learning experiences
as well as those of ARHS students.
Thank you to the dedicated CU
students who have been supporters of
student achievement at ARHS for the past
two years! Their commitment to servicelearning work has made a real difference
with one-to-one support for ARHS
students. n
ARHS Teacher Ms. Jode Brexa helped arrange for CU students to tutor at our campus.

>> Reducing Family Stress
We live in a stressful world. Research has shown a link between stress and a wide
variety of serious health problems including: hypertension, strokes, heart attacks,
diabetes, ulcers, neck or low back pain, and even cancer. That’s why it’s important
for us to have effective stress management skills. We can start by developing an
inventory of our sources of stress or stressors. After close examination, consider
stressors that can be eliminated. For example, if over-scheduling is a big source
of stress, reducing the number of activities may help to solve the problem.
There are, however, many stressors that we cannot eliminate. For those, effective
stress management skills are required. Practicing and strengthening these skills
can dramatically reduce the level of our subjective stress. Regular exercise, for
example, not only helps us physically, but also reduces symptoms of depression,
anxiety, and other negative emotional states. Another key stress management
technique involves our thinking. We tend to place a lot of stress on ourselves
based on our perfectionist, pessimistic, and generally negative thoughts. By trying
to be more aware of our thinking and shifting to more rational, logical, positive
thoughts (and keeping things in perspective), we can significantly reduce our
subjective experience of stress. Finally, practicing relaxation techniques is also
beneficial. From simple breathing techniques to visualizing yourself in a peaceful
place, relaxation techniques can significantly reduce your stress level.
Family life can also be fraught with stressors. Strategies to reduce family stress
include:
Model and teach effective stress reduction techniques to other family
members.
Choose your battles, particularly with your adolescent child.
Make time for fun family activities.
Minimize your involvement in your child’s homework, helping only when
asked.
Provide opportunities to share and vent feeling in a supportive
environment.
Be more aware of your own level of stress and the impact it has on the
family.
As we educate ourselves about stress, it is important for us to educate our
children. Create opportunities for family discussions, sharing the highs and lows
of your day, the stresses experienced and ways to address them. Provide positive
feedback for effective stress reduction efforts.
Look for us on the web!

Taking the time to assess your level of stress as well as that of your loved ones, will
go a long way to improving everyone’s physical
and emotional well-being. Reducing stress will by Dr. Jan Hittelman
positively impact your family’s relationships and Boulder Psychological Services

Parent Engagement Network presents:
Thriving During the Teenage Years
Tackling Technology
By Dr. Jan Hittelman
In the fast-paced world of ever-evolving technology, it is difficult for parents to keep up. Children are spending more time
in the virtual world resulting in less time for old-fashioned pursuits like having a face-to-face conversation, playing outside,
or going for a bike ride. The speed of this technological evolution often outpaces a parent’s ability to develop effective
strategies to address it.
While we cannot stop technological progress, here are some suggestions to consider:
• Consider your own behavior: How much time do you spend in front of a screen, talking on your cell phone, or
watching TV? Like it or not we are the role models for our children and need to try and practice what we preach.
• Create technology-free days: Consider setting aside time in the evenings and/or the weekends for everyone in the
family to turn off cell phones, iPods, televisions, videogames, computers, etc. and actually interact with each other.
• Discuss technology etiquette: Make sure that your children understand appropriate uses of technology in terms of
treating others with respect and only communicating in ways that would make you proud.
• Make technology a privilege, not a right: Consider having your child earn technology time as a function of
meeting their responsibilities at home and in school. Imagine if every hour of technology was a function of actually
interacting with others in the real world without plugging in to something.
• Develop family rules regarding technology: Include your children in discussions about turning their phones off
after a certain time at night, how much is too much daily screen time, the importance of other activities like exercise
and in-person social interaction, as well as how to prioritize other responsibilities with leisure pursuits.
• Keep a realistic perspective: Remember that part of your difficulty with accepting all of this technology is that
it is more foreign to you than it is to your children. When I was a child it certainly seemed like a simpler time
for parents. Back then parents were in fear of rock and roll music, confident that it would unravel the fiber of
civilization. Somehow we survived that as well.
To learn essential strategies to help your child successfully navigate the wild world of technology, participate in the next
Pathways to Parenting Success workshop:
What: Facebook, Sexting, and Gaming, OMG!
When: Monday, October 25, 6:30-8:00pm

Parent Engagement Network presenta:
Superando con éxito los años de la adolescencia
La lucha contra la tecnología
Por el Dr. Jan Hittelman
En el vertiginoso mundo de la tecnología en constante evolución, es difícil para los padres mantener el ritmo. Los niños
pasan más tiempo en el mundo virtual, lo que resulta en menos tiempo para viejas actividades como tener una conversación
cara a cara, jugar al aire libre, o dar un paseo en bicicleta. La velocidad de esta evolución tecnológica a menudo sobrepasa
la capacidad de los padres para desarrollar estrategias efectivas para hacerle frente. Aun cuando no podemos detener el
progreso tecnológico, aquí hay algunas sugerencias para tener en cuenta:
• Considere su propia conducta: ¿Cuánto tiempo pasa delante de una pantalla, hablando por teléfono celular, o
viendo televisión? Nos guste o no somos modelos para nuestros hijos y necesitamos practicar lo que predicamos.
• Establezca días libres sin la tecnología: Considere fijar una hora por las tardes y / o los fines de semana para toda
la familia y apagar los teléfonos celulares, los iPods, los televisores, los videojuegos, las computadoras, etc. y en
realidad interactuar los unos con los otros.
• Discuta la etiqueta de la tecnología: Asegúrese de que sus hijos comprendan el uso adecuado de la tecnología en
términos de tratar a los demás con respeto y sólo comunicar en maneras que lo hagan sentirse orgulloso.
• Haga de la tecnología un privilegio, no un derecho: Considere la posibilidad de que su hijo se merezca el
tiempo para la tecnología cumpliendo sus responsabilidades en el hogar y en la escuela. Imagínese si cada hora
de tecnología fuera en realidad una función de interacción con otras personas en el mundo real sin necesidad de
conectarse a algo.
• Desarrolle reglas familiares respecto a la tecnología: Incluya a sus hijos en las discusiones acerca de la
desactivación de sus teléfonos después de un cierto tiempo durante la noche, ¿qué tanto es demasiado tiempo frente
a la pantalla todos los días?, la importancia de otras actividades como el ejercicio y la interacción social en persona,
así como cómo dar prioridad a otras responsabilidades con actividades divertidas.
• Mantenga una perspectiva realista: Recuerde que parte de la dificultad para aceptar toda esta tecnología es que es
más extraña para usted que para sus hijos. Cuando yo era un niño sin duda los padres pensaban que la vida era más
sencilla. En aquel entonces los padres tenían miedo de la música de rock and roll, creían que echaría por tierra la
fibra de la civilización. De alguna manera también sobrevivimos eso.
Para conocer las estrategias esenciales para ayudar a su hijo a navegar con éxito el violento mundo de la tecnología,
participen en el próximo taller Caminos Exitosos para Criar a los Hijos:

Transportation for students with
temporary disabilities
To all staff and parents:
The question has come up, how do parents access transportation for students with temporary disabilities
that make it impossible for them to walk to school? The answer is, please email me at [email protected]
bvsd.org. I will make the arrangements with Lynn Tidd of the Transportation department for qualifying
students.
Thank you.
