Speaker Series Flyer "Media Literacy"
Jennifer Caufield

We all consume and share media; increasingly, many of us are content creators. Our access to the vast majority of information, whether social, cultural, political, economic, or scientific, is not acquired directly through first-hand experience, rather it is mediated by others. How do we evaluate information and sources in our everyday lives?

Our panel of speakers brings a wealth of expertise and experience to help us explore this critical topic: Erin McNeill, CEO and Founder of MediaLiteracyNow.org, Paul Mihailidis, professor of civic media and journalism at Emerson College, and Jean LaBelle-Pierce, librarian and social studies teacher in the Maynard public schools.

More information available on www.LWVHW.org 

Self-government requires informed and cooperative participation. Fundamental to that is the ability of citizens to navigate a constant flood of information with varied and contradicting perspectives and agendas driven by commercial, political, and cultural power. How do we train ourselves and future generations for that?

Updated Lunch Menus for the HWRSD
Jennifer Caufield

You may have noticed a change in our lunch menus... Our school menus are available online through MealViewer, an interactive platform for students, parents, and staff. MealViewer is available through our district website and has a mobile app for each school. It allows families to view individual school menus, allergens, nutrition information, and even gives students the ability to rate the school’s food! Parents can personalize the app by setting allergens, and the app will display an alert when these allergens are present in that day’s menu. You can find the User Guide with more information on our website
