YOU ARE INVITED!
Your child has now entered into their digital media lives, where cell
phone ownership doubles, video game use explodes and they dive into
the world of social media and hypertexting. Your child is rapidly
developing their personal identity with cell phone in hand and you need
to be prepared. Family rules, parental controls and developing a family
tech plan will be outlined as well as recommendations for monitoring
your teen’s digital life.
As a parent, you must lead the charge as a digital role model and help
your child develop a strong digital citizenship foundation while reminding
them that their digital footprint is a reflection of their real and online
selves. At this age, they will encounter situations that will challenge their
independence, including cyberbullying (and more commonly –
cyberexclusion), the dangers of anonymity, privacy, sharing intimate
images, and inappropriate websites, and you need to be there to
provide support and guidance during this critical period. Finally, to
better equip you for your digital parenting strategy, a snapshot of the
current trends and concerning apps will be provided.

Dear Beattie parents,
Further to my letter from last week, this email is to remind you about an informational event SD 73 will host to talk about the City of Kamloops’ recently opened Stuart Wood emergency winter shelter for the homeless.
The meeting will be held at Beattie Elementary on December 6 starting at 6:30 pm.
The shelter opened in the Stuart Wood building on November 1. The former school is the site where some of our students catch the bus to school in the morning. They are also dropped off at the school in the afternoon.
As you know, there have been some unfortunate incidents at the shelter. We met with the City and others last week to discuss concerns we had for student safety. The details of that meeting were shared in my last letter.
This event is being held in case parents have further concerns. We have invited representatives from the City and the Canadian Mental Health Association to attend the meeting as well.
Our hope is to hear your thoughts about what else might be done to lessen the impacts on our children, as well as to provide you tools you might use to help them better understand what is happening at the shelter.
Again, the meeting will be held at Beattie Elementary on December 6 starting at 6:30 pm. We would appreciate an RSVP to this email if you plan to attend so that we can better prepare for the meeting.
Principal, Beattie Elementary
