White Ribbon Week
What is White Ribbon Week and Digital Citizenship?
This week, September 19-23, is White Ribbon Week at Foothills Elementary!
White Ribbon Week is a week where our school will focus on helping kids make healthy choices in media and technology. Kids today may seem like experts at using technology, but the digital world requires all kinds of skills and habits that kids don't just pick up as they go. Digital citizenship helps them learn those skills.
Through the help of the Net Positive Program students will participate in an assembly on Monday followed by lessons and activities the rest of the week that are age appropriate and tailored to their specific grade level. Teachers will guide their class through the different activities and principles of online behavior each day and then they will provide information to parents on what was discussed for the week.
