SHS Recognized by Common Sense Media

We are happy to announce that Common Sense Media, the national nonprofit organization dedicated to helping kids and families thrive in a world of digital media and technology, has recognized Spartanburg High School and the Freshman Academy as a Common Sense Digital Citizenship Certified School for educating our students to be safe, smart, and ethical digital citizens. This year, students received many lessons on establishing positive online identities, cyber bullying, internet privacy, along with a number of other digital citizenship topics. This goes a long way to showing our kids what it means to be responsible with their technology, but our parents and community can help, too.
Common Sense is also a great resource for parents who want advice navigating our digital world. Check out their website for parenting resources, media reviews and app information:

Although the Boy’s Varsity Lacrosse team fell to the Riverside Warriors by a score of 14 to 8, the boys absolutely never gave up and played hard all the way to the last whistle. Mills Griffin and Ernie Floyd led the midfield by each tallying 2 goals a piece. Chappell Bauknight, Tillman James, Daryl Cunningham, and RE Fore all chipped in with a point each as well. In Tommy Sisan’s first game ever as the Varsity goalie he made 6 great saves. The Vikings next game is our home opener against the Patriots of JL Mann on Wednesday, March 4th. The JV is set to play at 5:30 and the Varsity will immediately follow at 7:00. Hope to see everyone out for our home opener.
