CALLING ALL PARENTS!!
MANDATORY PARENT MEETING
Topic: Your Child’s Online Safety
Tuesday, March 1st @ 6:30 PM in the Sanctuary
On this very important evening, we will be discussing what type of values our children are being exposed to through technology, how much technology is too much, consequences of overexposure, and the ever-present danger of our children encountering explicit material and pornography online. (According to the internet protection service GuardChild, “70% of children 7 to 18 years old have accidentally encountered online pornography, often through a web search while doing homework”.) We will also be sharing some great tips and products that you can use to make your home and electronic devices as safe as possible for your children.Please make plans to attend. After the assembly, parents will visit their child’s classroom. Due to the nature of the material to be discussed, students will not be permitted to attend.
After the meeting, the K-4th grade parents will go on to their child's classroom but 5th grade parents will stay to hear about the new STOPit App for anonymous bully reporting that 5th graders will be allowed to have on any personal device that they have.
This year's arts festival theme will focus on daily life in ancient Jerusalem and the roots of the Christian faith. Our lower gym will be transformed into a bustling marketplace depicting Jerusalem in the first century. Throughout the day, classes will rotate through the marketplace and will participate in a Jewish Seder. Students are encouraged to come dressed in biblical costumes.
