PTA FAMILY TECH TALK NIGHT

FAMILY TECH TALK NIGHT


" Texting, livestreaming, Instagram, Minecraft. What are kids doing on the Internet? And who are they communicating with? Learn about social networking, texting, gaming, and how to help your child use the Internet responsibly at our Family Tech Talk Night on Wednesday, November 8, 2017 from 6:00pm to 7:30pm atOakbrook Academy of the Arts, Library.

Technology is changing fast, and many of us are struggling to stay one step ahead of our kids and learn everything we can about being online. This isn’t an easy task—our kids have never known life without the Internet, and in many cases, they know more about it than we do.

Please join us as we discuss what our children are doing online and how to teach them to be smart, safe, and respectful digital citizens. You’ll learn about:

•   The importance of knowing the sites and apps your child uses
•   How kids are using mobile devices like smartphones and tablets
•   Social networking sites and how to help your child use them wisely
•   What to do if your child encounters online bullying
•   Objectionable content, how to block it, and what to do if your child views it
•   The importance of teaching your child to find a healthy balance with technology use
•   Your role in keeping the conversation going about responsible Internet use


We look forward to seeing you Wednesday, November 8, 2017 at 6:00p.m. and discussing this important topic.

Hello Families!

Welcome to the 2017-18 school year. Student wellness is at the heart of learning. Students who have a healthy lifestyle can achieve more and be more successful in school.  We are working to provide a healthy classroom and school campus for your student to thrive. When there is an opportunity for classroom celebrations; birthdays, holidays, awards, we want to celebrate without food.  Instead, we would like you to bring items like books, bookmarks, coloring books, stickers, for example. If you would like to provide a treat, fresh fruit or vegetables are allowed.

Thank you for working with us to provide a healthy learning environment for your student.  We look forward to a successful school year ahead.
Wellness
