Hi Ms. Slifko

I am writing to inform you that I spoke with Joshua and some other 3rd grade boys this afternoon.  It was reported to me late last week that the boys were using "bad words" at recess. Mr. Mark and Mr. Mercado addressed it with them and uncovered that the boys are watching Vanoss Gaming on Youtube.  Both teachers expressed concerns about the content of these videos, which after watching, I can confirm that there are several "bad words" being used throughout the videos.

I've addressed the "bad word" use with the boys and all are in agreement that they will do their best to no longer use that type of language during recess.  I'm writing just to make you aware of the content on Vanoss Gaming to ensure you are aware that Joshua is viewing this content.  Please contact me if you have any questions or would like to discuss further.

Thank you,
Reanna Mendoza
