Common Sense Education, the national nonprofit organization dedicated to helping kids and families thrive in a world of digital media and technology, has recognized Beverly Vista Middle School as a "Common Sense Media School", in acknowledgment and celebration of our efforts in teaching digital citizenship with the leadership and support of our librarian, Mr. Jesse Braun.
At Beverly Vista Middle School we believe that digital citizenship and information literacy are essential skills for children in the 21st century to prepare students to use the immense power of digital media to explore, create, connect, and learn while limiting the perils that exist in the online realm, such as plagiarism, loss of privacy, and cyberbullying.
"We're so proud of our students and staff, and honored to be recognized as a Common Sense Media School," said BVMS principal Kevin Allen. The lessons our students have received in the Beverly Vista Middle School library this year will help ensure that they are equipped with skills that are essential for their well-being today—and for the opportunities, they'll have tomorrow.”
The recognition acknowledges the school’s commitment to creating a culture of digital learning and citizenship. To learn more about Common Sense Education, visit www.commonsense.org/education.
