Monitoring What Students See and Hear

It is concerning to hear that students are making references to inappropriate/adult topics in the classroom. Children can be exposed to such topics through various means, including social media (TikTok, Facebook, Youtube, etc), television, music, and overheard conversations. They can repeat these topics, sometimes without even knowing what they are saying.  It is important for parents and caregivers to monitor what their children are exposed to and to have open and honest conversations about appropriate behavior and language.


Parents can take steps to limit their child's access to inappropriate content by setting parental controls on devices and monitoring their child's online activity. Additionally, parents can talk to their children about what they are watching and help them understand why certain content may not be appropriate.

As educators, it is important to address inappropriate language and behavior in the classroom and to provide guidance on appropriate language and behavior. Teachers can also work with parents to address any concerns and to ensure that students are receiving consistent messaging at school and at home.


Overall, it is essential for parents and educators to work together to create a safe and supportive learning environment for children. By monitoring what children are exposed to and providing guidance on appropriate behavior and language, we can help ensure that children are not exposed to inappropriate content and are able to thrive both academically and socially.


From Mrs. Packert

Bogan family,


The last 8 years have been the very best years of my life. Watching your kids grow up- from sweet preschoolers to graduating seniors has been the greatest gift I have ever been given. To walk through life's ups and downs with you and your family is something that I cherish so deeply in my heart and I don’t nor will I ever take that for granted. 


2020 took a lot from us all. Reimagining how we do life and school- just to name a few. Struggling through online learning but coming through to the other side, stronger than ever. 


The pandemic put a lot into perspective for me and my family- especially as a mom of two young boys. Every single day is such a gift and no moment should be wasted. 


That being said, my little family and I have been given the opportunity to move back to Columbus at the end of the school year- where my family is- to be able to cherish each and every moment with them. Thus, ending my chapter in Talawanda.


From the deepest part of my heart, thank you. Thank you for letting me love your kids. Thank you for trusting me with them. Thank you for letting me into your highs and your lows. I am so deeply grateful you welcomed me into your story.

Contacting Legislators

For those of you that attended PTG on Tuesday evening, I talked about contacting state legislators and the governor about school funding.  Holli Hansel has placed the information on the TSD website.  Please consider taking a few minutes to advocate for fair school funding for Ohio.  The state of Ohio's funding for public schools has been found unconstitutional multiple times.  I will be reaching out to our legislators and please consider taking a few moments to do the same. 


Please consider writing to our Ohio Board of Education, and other state leaders and elected officials.  Check out the talking points and letters we've shared on our district website.
