Courageous Community Conference

This Sunday, January 31, at 6:30 PM in the Silverdale Baptist Church sanctuary, the Academy will host national speaker and author, Mr. Paul Coughlin on the topic of bullying and how to be a courageous community. This is an evening that I beg you not to miss for the sake of your child and those that your children will grow up with. Please go to our site and register at www.silverdaleba.org/ccc. If one or both parents attend, your child will receive a special sticker to wear the next day along with a dress down day to indicate your support as part of our Courageous Community. Students from 3rd grade on up would benefit from attending the meeting with their parents.

Calling all parents!

MANDATORY PARENT MEETING


Topic: Your Child’s Online Safety


Tuesday, February 9th @ 6:30 PM in the Sanctuary


On this very important evening, we will be discussing what type of values our children are being exposed to through technology, how much technology is too much, consequences of overexposure, and the ever-present danger of our children encountering explicit material and pornography online. (According to the internet protection service GuardChild, “70% of children 7 to 18 years old have accidentally encountered online pornography, often through a web search while doing homework”.) We will also be sharing some great tips and products that you can use to make your home and electronic devices as safe as possible for your children.

Please make plans to attend. After the assembly, parents will visit their child’s classroom. Due to the nature of the material to be discussed, students will not be permitted to attend.
