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.

Please pray!

Please be in prayer for the family of one of our Kindergarteners, Brennan Wall. Brennan's dad, Michael passed away on Friday, February 12th. His family would covet your prayers during this time.

Sock Drive

Our High School Interact Club is collecting socks for Homeless Awareness through the Chattanooga Food Bank. The drive has been extended to Friday, February 26th. Socks can be turned in to the elementary receptionist desk.
