In the comments: what do you think you’ll want to write about this summer? (This serves as your introduction to your classmates!)
+ Respect each other, at all times. Be honest, but don't be cruel. Only write what you could say to someone in person with me standing by.
+ Respect the school – they’re the ones providing us with server space!
+ Follow all district guidelines regarding appropriate content – don’t post something that gets you in trouble!
+ Avoid smiley faces, shorthand/acroynyms, and other linguistic oddities from the Digital Age ("i" instead of "I," "u" instead of "you," etc.)...I wouldn’t think I’d need to put that in writing, but it’s been an issue before!
+ Be honest, present, participatory, and enthusiastic!
This is going to be fun – let’s see what the next twenty-four days have in store!
