Digital Citizenship Tip of the Week:  Students are strongly encouraged to change their school Gmail passwords to make them more secure.  Do NOT continue using the old method.  Create a password that you will remember but will be difficult for others to guess.  Consider adding symbols and numbers to add complexity to your new password.  See Mr. Barrett in the Media center if you need help.
