Upcoming PTA Event
PTA Meeting: Wednesday, January 9th
Join us in the OPE media center for a very important PTA meeting. This month we will have Assistant United States Attorney April Russo here to discuss Project Safe Childhood with us. This initiative is focused on protecting and rescuing victims of child exploitation.
Ms. Russo will discuss different websites that defendants use to find children, the methods used to deceive children into engaging in conversation and other activity, discuss sextortion, talk about some of the recent cases her office has seen, provide some tips to keep our kids safe, and end with a Q & A period.
This is an intimidating topic but we feel it is so important to be well informed as our kids grow up in this digital world. Even if your kids are not currently active on social media or the internet, it is still vital to know how to keep them safe as they get older.
In a 2013 national sting on child sex trafficking, Detroit was second highest of 76 cities for victims recovered. The youngest was 9 years old. Hopefully this will never affect our families but knowledge is power.
We will also be visited by a representative from Hospitality House food pantry in Commerce with information on how we can help those in need of support in our community.
Childcare will be available during the meeting. Please contact us at OakleyParkPTA@gmail.com with any questions.
