Merchantville School kicked of the 2019-2020 Renaissance school year with a GO VIRAL! assembly reminding students to make positive connections with each other. Our school is proud to remind students about the importance of treating each other with respect. GO VIRAL is a new 40 minute multi-media experience from Camfel Productions designed to challenge students to make real connections. Cell phones and social media have altered how we communicate today in some amazing ways. These fabulous tools are incredibly useful for navigating through life today. However, too many students are abusing these tools as well. Social media is filled misleading information or students posting images seeking affirmation via hearts, likes and smiles. Some even use social media as a way to bully and criticize others to build themselves up. GO VIRAL motivates students to act responsibly within the social media world. They'll be challenged to post more real and encouraging comments. They'll be inspired to seek out face to face encounters and GO VIRAL with kind words and a smile. GO VIRAL will help students gain a new sense of their own innate worth, they'll grow to appreciate the diversity of race, language, and culture that make up the community in which they live.
