WPE Community Newsletter - Week of October 11

Message from the Principal

Dear Parents,


Recently I have conducted "Tik Tok Talks" with students. With "Influencers" (people creating TIK TOK videos and becoming famous) choosing to create these crazy challenges such as Steal Soap Dispensers, Slap a teacher it is so important that we are aware of the social media channels that our children are engaging in. We are growing thinkers and problem solvers not followers and I am proud to say that we have had only a hand full of incidents that are related to these TIK TOK challenges. Social Media can be a challenge to monitor and discuss with our children. Check out this article on 10 Ways to Monitor Your Child's Social Media Use for some ideas. Thank you for your support.
