  • We Need Your Help In Keeping Your Kids Safe! (Technology Monitoring/ Discussions)
    Unfortunately, we live in a time and a society that’s witness to violence and petty hostility almost on a daily basis. It’s sad and sickening at the same time how many have become numb to the effect that their words and actions have on others. When we couple society’s current state, as just described, with the ever growing influence of social media then we’re confronted with one of the biggest adolescent problems today: the use of violent statements. The issue arises when violent statements are thrown around as common conversation or as what is perceived as a joke. I assure you that the possible outcomes of saying things like “kill yourself” and “I’ll kill you” are far from a laughing matter. These are the furthest thing from a joke and they will not be tolerated at Cross Timbers Middle School! We must be vigilant in monitoring our children’s technology use because these types of statements (kill yourself is abbreviated to simply KYS when typed) along with other forms of cyberbullying happen on a regular basis, no matter where you live. Adolescents are at an age where they’re trying to figure out their place in society, and when these comments are directed at them it tells them their place in society isn’t valued. This can be devastating and sometimes leads to severe depression and suicidal thoughts. Although the occurrences of suicide is small, it still happens and must be eradicated. As mentioned before, violent statements will not be tolerated at CTMS. We need your help to educate your children about how to interact with others in society acceptingly and caringly. There’s already too much ugliness and depression in the world; our generation must be the one to end the cycle of acceptance for violent statements.

     


    David’s Law- Bullying Update- Effective -September 1, 2017
    This summer, the state has passed a new bill in regards to bullying which went into effect September 1, 2017. The major change from the previous legislation is that it now covers cyber bullying, and the definition of bullying has expanded to include even one instance of aggression toward another person. Much of this redefined bullying legislation affects us as educators and how we identify, prevent, and handle occurrences of bullying.
    Please educate yourselves on this law and the changes from the original definition of the word. It is important to visit and or reiterate with your student the importance of not posting hurtful things about people, as this can become a disciplinary issue at school as well as a legal problem if it’s serious enough. Below is a link that highlights the changes to the Texas Education Code that is now State Bill 179 “David’s Law”.
