Digital Parent Session- 6:00 p.m.

Dear Parents,

On Monday November 12 our Parent Council will be hosting a parent information session on Growing up Digital. The session will be presented by Trevor Pikkert a former High School Counselor and Vice-Principal and current Educational Technology Coordinator for Red Deer Public Schools. The sessions will talk about the effects of technology on child development and education. The session will also focus on what parents can do help their kids use digital technology in appropriate & safe ways.

Being a parent has never been easy, but it can be even more challenging once your kids are using the internet. Even if you’re not up on the latest technologies and platforms, though, you have an important role — maybe the most important — in your kids’ online lives. This session will prepare you for the conversations you need to have with kids when they first start using digital devices, as they grow and their online activities change, and when things go wrong.

This evening session will run from 6-7 pm and a light supper will be provided for all parents who attend. The November Parent Council meeting will follow the session at 7 pm and all parents are welcome to stay for the meeting.
