Welcome Mr. Ian Waterman
We would like to welcome Mr. Ian Waterman to the SJS teaching staff starting in January. He will be filling in for Mrs. Clinebell. Mr. Waterman comes to us with a Master's Degree from the University of Nebraska, and a thorough background in Science. He has already been up to SJS several times to get to know the staff and students, and has even helped with after school groups. We look forward to having Mr. Waterman join our staff and look forward to seeing his ideas and initiatives. Feel free to send him an email- email@example.com
The new semester gives us the chance to re-focus on supervision of technology. We work at school to make sure students know appropriate phone and web behaviors. Additionally, many parents have found phone monitoring software like, WebWatcher or FamilyTime, to be of value. But the importance of parents monitoring and supervising phones cannot be over stated. Thanks for all you do.
