12-PRESTON COUNTY JOURNAL-Wednesday, September 14, 2011- Kingwood, WV New school year- new challenge by U.S. Senator Jay Rockefeller As the summer winds down and kids throughout WV start a new school year, we must look at what we can do to give students the tools they need to make the most of their educa- tion. Just as many parents want to make sure their kids have up to date text books, healthy lunch- es, and top quality teachers, I want to make sure they learn the subjects that will prepare them Cnurch news Sat., Sept 17 A Preston County Sing will be held at 7 p.m. at the Amboy Methodist Church on the Au- rora Pike.

I will continue the fight in Washington to see that parents and school systems have the support they need to guarantee a successful year of learning for all our children - the future leaders of WV. Schools are very different than they were just ten years ago. In our digital society, a child&apos;s education depends on more than the three R's - Reading, wRit- ing and aRithmetic. Earlier this year, I visited a Third grade class at Piedmont Elementary School which has been a NASA Explorer School since 2007. The program has helped expose students to math, science, and engineering, and I got to see firsthand the ex- traordinary technology that this school and its students are able to use. While I was sitting in the classroom, the kids connected via video with NASA astro- nauts and asked them about space travel, astronomy, and any many other topics. It was inspiring to see schools harnessing the new technology that is now available to help stu- dents learn in new and exciting ways. This experience only rein- forced that it's essential every September 14 Lawren M.

Representatives Phone 329-0600 Kingwood, WV 26537 school and library has access to updated technology and high- speed Intemet to help our stu- dents obtain the newest learn- ing tools and most important resources. For this reason, I created the E-Rate program - a bipartisan education program to make sure children across WV have equal access to the latest in technological advancements to help them learn. The E-Rate program benefits children, teachers, parents, and communities - no matter where they are located or the size of their budgets. Students in rural areas deserve to have access to the latest tools in the classroom and to be engaged with tech- nologies that provide the oppor- tunity to be competitive in the modem world. When we began E-Rate in 1996, only about 14% of class- rooms were connected to the In- temet, and only 5% in the poor- est of schools. Now, the rate of connectivity is over 90%. This program made the NASA Explorer School possible at Piedmont Elementary, and I'm continuing to push to expand it to schools throughout the state. But harnessing technology at school also means being re- sponsible with it at home. Face- book, Twitter, YouTube, and other platforms have changed the way many of us interact and share information. They enable our kids to instantly connect and engage with limitless places and people from all over the world. I recently joined Facebook and Twitter, in part to find new ways to communicate with a new generation of West Virginians who are embracing technology. When used well, it's a resource which can be unmatched. But when used irresponsibly, it can cause serious damage to peo- ple's lives. Cyberbullying has become all too prevalent among students. Kids who are facing cyberbul- lying should be encouraged to seek help right away, and I encourage parents and teach- ers to pay careful attention to this growing practice. I'm also working to make sure our kids are better protected online to prevent bullying or predators from taking advantage of them. Please visit http://www.stopbul- lying.gov for more information on this important issue. Just as we need to improve our children's education using new technology, we also need to make sure they have a full range of skills that will help prepare them for the future. I co-sponsored a bill that would encourage schools to teach students critical thinking, problem solving, and collabora- tion in the classroom to better prepare them for the working world in the 21st century. States would have the flexibility to de- velop curriculums that provide meaningful guidance and prep- aration for our kids. We live in an ever changing world. Our schools must also learn to adapt quickly so kids can continue to get the best edu- cation possible. We can use the new technologies at our finger- tips to make learning fun and prepare our kids for the world in which they are growing up. Our kids will be the leaders of tomorrow, and it's our respon- sibility to make sure they are ready for it. I encourage every- one to do their part. Good luck in the new school year. 6 Great HONEYSUCKLE TURKEY BREAST Items 1 Great or AMISH SWISS CHEESE or WILSON OLD FASHIONED HAM P ri ce !
