  • Seek the Truth

    seek the truth

    Let's all pledge to choose reputable sources for our news. 

    Students and teachers alike can fall into the trap of believing whatever comes over their phones or devices, whether from social media or online sources.  Seek the Truth asks us all to be discerning and responsible, to check facts and sources. 

    Below are some sources to help you Seek the Truth.  You will also find many related articles printed at the Seek the Truth display in the Library.
