8.    JQS Social Media. Please follow us at: josiahquincyschool. We started an Instagram account for the school, Instagram is a free photo sharing app. We also just took down the old JQS Facebook page so we can fully update it and connect it to the Instagram account. We will not be posting pictures of kids. We wanted to get JQS active on social media for 2 reasons- It's a big school. Anything that can encourage a sense of community and school pride is a good thing. We also wanted to show new and potential parents all the wonderful happenings going on in the school every day. The second reason is, we received a lot of donations this year, food and otherwise. We have a lot of community partners. If we can recognize those donors in the social media sphere, where it could potentially prove beneficial to them (the donor) and we can maintain a relationship and encourage them to donate again. We spoke with Principal Ho about doing some kind of social media contest with the teachers next year- whoever sends in the most pictures receives a gift card to go toward classroom supplies. We'd like to do a "Teacher Tuesday" where we photograph a different teacher each week and hopefully include a fun bit of information about them that we did not know.
JQS昆士小學社交媒體。請關注我們: josiahquincyschool 。我們為學校在Instagram上開了帳戶, Instagram是一個免費照片共享應用程序。我們已把舊的JQS Facebook頁面暫停,這樣我們可以進行更新並把它連接到Instagram的帳戶。我們不會張貼孩子的照片。我們希望讓JQS活躍的體現在社交媒體中是因為:一,這是一所大的學校。我們需要促進社區和學校的驕傲感,也想向新的和潛在的家長展示學校每天的精彩生活。二,今年我們收到了很多捐贈,還有很多社區合作夥伴。如果我們能夠在社交媒體上列出捐助者,可能有助於捐助者和我們保持關係,並鼓勵他們再次捐贈。我們和何校長初步計劃明年可以和老師組織一個社交媒體比賽。誰發的圖片最多,就獎勵一張禮品卡,可用來買教室用品。我們希望舉行教師星期二的活動,每個星期我們拍攝不同的老師,希望能展示一些他們我們還不知道的有趣信息。
9.    Psychologist Eric Wong provided an update on the Universal Screening Program that began this year. The program focuses on creating a system to be able identify and support Social/Emotional development for the entire school. JQS is leading the BPS field in implementing this program. Principal Ho will be presenting at the Social Emotional Workshop May 29th from 3-6 pm at the Boston Public Library.
