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.
Good afternoon, please see below a copy of the synervoice that will go out to parents at 6:30 pm, February 6th. If you are not receiving messages from the school, please contact the school (250-374-0608) to update your contact information.
Good evening parents, this is Mr. Lloyd with important reminders for the families here at Beattie Elementary.
A reminder that there is dinner and a movie night coming up this Thursday, doors open at 5:30 and the movie will start at 6 pm. There will be pizza/juice boxes being sold starting at 5:30 pm
Secondly, the PAC will be hosting a pub night at the Fox and Hounds on Monday, February 26th. I encourage parents and friends of Beattie Elementary to come out and join in the fun this night; roasted rosemary chicken and BBQ back ribs with Caesar salad will be served for just $15 per person. Tickets are available at the school office, or from PAC executive member, Candace Morrison. You can reach Candace by calling or texting 778-220-9142. Along with dinner, there will be 50/50 draw, and classroom basket raffles.
