Lansing Student Podcast Recognized by New York Times Lansing Student Podcast Recognized by New York Times: Lansing student Trinity Edwards was one of the winners of the New York Times’ Second Annual Student Podcast Contest.   From nearly 900 submissions, only 12 entries were chosen as winners.

With the help of the BOCES Teknologia grant program, teacher librarian Nick Johnston and I ...

A Message from the Superintendent: Momo Challenge A Message from the Superintendent: Momo Challenge: Dear Families, The “Momo Challenge” is the latest social media challenge directed at children and young adults. We are urging families to become aware of this challenge and to use this as a reminder to speak to your children about internet safety and to monitor your children’s use of social media, gaming and the internet. The “Momo Challenge” can be found on various social media and gaming platforms and is disturbing in nature. The communications through the “Momo Challenge” begin with a chat that asks the receiver to perform small tasks and then escalates to more serious violent acts and request photographs for proof.  If the “Momo Challenge” is true, it is just one example of dangerous “games” through social ...
