The Jostens Renaissance Mid-Atlantic Collaborative Professional Learning Community took place on Thursday, December 5, 2013 at King George High School in King George, VA.  Twelve school from around the area, spanning from West Virginia, Northern Virginia, Stafford, and the Northern Neck of Virginia, were present.  About 75 staff leaders attended.  Lisa Spain, Jostens Renaissance Director, facilitated the event along with Tom Nichols, Principal of North Stafford High School, and Cliff Conway, Principal of King George High School.

The walls were plastered with ideas from all the attendees on how to build positive culture in schools and find unique ways to reward/recognize students and faculty who many times go unrecognized.  Let's get started with those baby step ideas we can implement in our schools and turn them in big steps over time. 

Congratulations to all of you who took home wonderful ideas and prizes such as Mt. Vernon's two registrations to Jostens National Pep Rally this July in Orlando and TC William's Pause Before You Post kit.  The Walt Whitman Middle School team was also in attendance.  West Potomac High School of Fairfax, VA was also on the guest list.

The follow-up conference was on March 21, 2014 at Musselman High School in West Virginia.

Pause Before You Post ("Pause B4 U Post," for Short)
Pause Before You Post is a public service program from Jostens encouraging everyone to make smart decisions about personal publishing.  Through expert advice online and in schools, we're hoping to make teens and parents more aware of the responsibilities and consequences of sharing information, particularly through online social media.
Make a statement supporting Pause Before You Post™ and spread the word in your community with the following pledge:  I believe in making smart decisions when I share information online and want to spread the word to my friends, family, and community about taking time to Pause Before You Post.
Before I make a post, I pledge to ask myself:
  • Who will be able to see what I post?
  • Will anyone be embarrassed or hurt by it?
  • Am I proud of what I'm posting?
  • How I would feel if someone posted it about me?
