News from Our School Counselor


During this time of increased technology use, it is even more important to remember the dangers of social media on children. According to a study, at least half of kids will have some sort of social media before the age of 12. For tips on keeping your children safe on social media, please review the attached image.

Hope you all have a safe and happy weekend.
