We hope to see you there!

Secondly, the Cookie Dough fundraiser was a huge success! We will send out details soon but from the preliminary results we had our highest selling year ever. Thank you for your continuous supports in all areas of Pauline South. You can pick up the cookie dough from the Pauline South parking lot on Thursday, April 1st from 4:00-6:00pm.

Lastly, we still have 2 more PTO Meetings this year. We will meet on Tuesday, April 6th and Tuesday, May 3rd at 6:00. We will send out some more information but please mark your calendars.

This photo was taken from a Law Enforcement Agency's Social Media page and is a great reminder to be vigilant to the potential dangers that anyone with internet and smart phone access can fall victim to.
During the COVID-19 Pandemic, children have had more access and been more active on the internet than ever before. This has left them vulnerable to cyber predators.
Law Enforcement Agencies all over the country are experiencing a type of exploitation known as sextortion. Sextortion begins when a predator reaches out to a young person over a video game, app, or social media account. Through deception, manipulation, money and gifts, or threats, the predator convinces the young person to produce an explicit video or image. When the young person starts to resist requests for more images, the predator will use threats of harm or exposure of the images to pressure the child to continue producing content.
Those involved in the sextortion of children often:
• Approach a child on social media after using it to learn about the child’s interests, friends, school, family, etc.
• Intentionally move their communications with the child from one online platform to another (e.g., moving from social media to private video chat or messaging apps)
• Use tactics to coerce a child, including:
o Reciprocation (“I’ll show you, if you show me”)
o Initially offering something to the child, such as money or drugs, in exchange for sexually explicit photos/videos
o Pretending to work for a modeling agency to obtain sexual images of the child
o Developing a bond with the child by establishing a friendship/romantic relationship
o Secretly recording sexually explicit videos of the child during video chats
o Physically threatening to hurt or sexually assault the child or the child’s family members
o Using multiple online identities to contact a child
o Pretending to be younger and/or a member of the opposite sex
o Accessing the child’s online account without authorization and stealing sexual images or videos of the child
o Threatening to create sexual images or videos of the child using digital-editing tools
o Saving sexually explicit conversations with the child and threatening to post them online
Please be vigilant against these predators by talking to your children, monitoring their phones for unapproved apps, explaining the dangers of predators, explaining that once a photo is sent it is out of their control, and to never share personal information over the internet.
If you know of a child that has been enticed over the internet by a predator please contact your local law enforcement office.
More detailed information can be obtained from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

I hope this letter finds you well and enjoying the evening. I received news at the end of the day that the Pauline South team will receive the first dose of COVID-19 vaccination on this upcoming Monday, February 22nd. This is great news as it is a tremendous step forward in making our school a safer environment for all.

Unfortunately, there is some inconvenience involved in that in order to accomodate doing our entire school, we will have a Remote Learning day on Monday, February 22nd. We were just made aware of our date for vaccinations a few hours ago and so we will work tomorrow to create a schedule that will provide meaningful learning opportunities for your child on Monday. Please look for an email from your child's teacher that will provide you the schedule for Monday.

Again, we are very grateful for all of the continued support you have provided our teachers and Pauline South in general during this pandemic. While none of us have completed this path we are all on together, we are all moving in a forward and positive direction. Thank you and please feel free to contact me through email or by calling Pauline South if you have any questions.

Proud to be a Panther,
Chris Holman, Principal
