Class Charts is a free online tool that lets teachers create seating charts for their pupils. Students can be organised into different groups according to learning needs or behaviour issues and important data about each pupil can be added to further improve the organisation.
Positive and negative behaviour points can also be given, enabling the site to be used as a behaviour management tool by individual teachers or groups of colleagues within the school. The site also generates reports about students behaviour that can be shared with others.
This looks like a really useful (and free) service for schools.

A parade can provide enjoyment and lifelong memories for children. To make sure this happens, the Northwestern-Alva Homecoming Committee is encouraging parents to help make the parade safe for children.
To make the parade an enjoyable experience, the Homecoming committee is asking that parents keep all children in the parking area on the side of the street and not in the streets.
“Cars, animals, tractors all add a certain quality to the parade,” Dr. Aaron Mason, Homecoming co-chair, said. “For us to keep all these elements, it’s important for children to remain back a safe distance.”
