SPECIAL March PTA Meeting Info:

For the first time, our D39 Elementary schools are joining together to give you an opportunity to gain insight on keeping your child safe online. We are all facing challenges as we raise our children in an age where the social rules of technology are changing almost daily. Please join us for a presentation that is specific to navigating our younger children through the world online. We are offering both a daytime and an evening meeting for your convenience!

These PTA/PTO Meetings are open to any D39 parent with kids in grades K-4.

Our presenter is Tony DeMonte, Director of Technology and Media Services for District 39.  Topics to be discussed are:

  • Creating boundaries with mobile devices
  • Potentially dangerous apps
  • Social media
  • Privacy
  • Inappropriate content
  • Cyberbullying

There will be an opportunity to ask questions at the end.  We are delighted to offer this open meeting with Tony, TWICE!  So, carpool over with some friends for an evening at Central School (3/7 at 7pm) or a morning at Harper (3/21 at 9am) and let’s get this conversation started.
