Learn the basics of Internet safety

Children use a variety of online services, and each of these services can have different safety concerns. However, there are some basic tips which you can employ no matter how your children use the Internet.

  • Keep the computer in a high-traffic area of your home.

  • Establish limits for which online sites children may visit and for how long.

  • Remember that Internet technology can be mobile, so make sure to monitor cell phones, gaming devices, and laptops.

  • Surf the Internet with your children and let them show you what they like to do online.

  • Know who is connecting with your children online and set rules for social networking, instant messaging, emailing, online gaming, and using webcams.

  • Continually dialogue with your children about online safety.

Remember You Tube has access to pretty much anything and some of it’s content may not be appropriate for your young children. Please monitor what they are watching on You Tube as it may look ok from a distance but in truth it may not be appropriate (Jeffy the Puppet)

Paint and Sip Cocoa Night

Over 140 painters attended the PTO Paint and Sip Cocoa Night at CHES. Families created their own canvas art while enjoying cookies and hot cocoa. It was a wonderful evening of painting, visiting, and sipping cocoa! Thank you to all the families who attended. It was great to see students and parents enjoying this special time together. If you couldn't make this event, stay tuned because there is still more to come! The PTO is already planning the next event. Huge thank you to the PTO and all the teacher volunteers.
