Raymond Elementary School students in grades 4-6 will be participating in the Safer Schools presentations on Wednesday, September 27 at Raymond Jr. High School.

The student presentation will be held during school hours throughout the week. These presentations will focus on age sensitive lessons and content that is most applicable to the particular age group. This presentation will cover all things digital, from digital citizenship and how to be a good digital citizen to the criminal consequences of cyberbullying. Some of the most prominent concerns currently surrounding student’s use of social networking sites and smartphones will be discussed. Topics covered will include: how to practice netiquette (online etiquette), how to recognize and respond to cyberbullying, the criminal and social consequences of cyberbullying behavior and the possession and distribution of intimate images (sexting), self-peer exploitation, digital media habits and oversharing, digital addiction, piracy, and plagiarism.

The parent presentation will focus on all things digital. Your child in Middle/High School has now entered into the peak of their digital media lives, where cell phone ownership doubles, video game use explodes and they dive into the world of social media and hyper-texting. Your child is rapidly developing their personal identity with a 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 tween/teen’s digital life.
