Dear Toledo Parents,
The internet is like a big city. There are amazing resources for art, music, socializing and learning. There are amusements and there is beauty. Like any big city, there are also areas that are dangerous. Just as you would supervise your children in a big city, steering them away from temptations that might lead them into harm’s way, we encourage you to supervise your children when they are online.
Be present when your child is using any online device, watch what they’re watching and discuss what they’re seeing. Talk to your children about how to respond if they encounter anything in the digital world that is scary or threatening. Children understand, “...makes you feel icky or scared”. Just as they would tell you if they had something troubling happen at the store, they should know they can come to you with something that happens online. Make conversation with children about what they are seeing and doing online a frequent practice.
Here are some resources for family internet safety practices:
As always, if you have questions or concerns, please contact your child’s school.

Did you know that Washington lost more than 2.6 million acres of farmland since 1950, a 15 percent drop, and about 700,000 acres of forestland since 1978?
The good news is that we're accepting grant applications for programs that provide landowners a way to receive income for development rights and conservation practices while keeping their farms and forests profitable and productive. Learn more: https://bit.ly/2ILJAef

Great news! The National Science Foundation (NSF) has extended the deadline for the Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching (PAEMST) to April 1!
Lewis County Permaculture Society’s Chrys Ostrander asks: Your Action is Requested!
Good news from Olympia: SB 5947, "Establishing the sustainable farms and fields grant program" passed the Senate!
This bill would create a competitive grant program through WSDA to fund projects that reduce greenhouse gasses and increase rates of carbon sequestration on farms and ranches.
However, now action is needed for it to get a hearing in the House Rural Development, Agriculture, & Natural Resources committee. We need to get farmers and ranchers, as many as possible in these legislators’ districts, to call and email to ask Chairman Blake to schedule SB 5947 for a hearing, and to speak in support of the bill. Take a look at the list, and call your representative encouraging support for SB 5947 and request specifically that a hearing for the bill be scheduled in the House Rural Development, Agriculture, and Natural Resources Committee.
