Please join us on Tuesday, December 3rd, 7pm for our next PTO meeting.
The meeting will feature a presentation by Dr. Jordanna L’Esperance-Chouinard, Bigelow school psychologist, and Lee Doyle from The Boston Area Rape Crisis Center about safe and respectful use of social media by middle school students.
This is an interactive discussion which will offer guidelines, resources, and tools for helping parents manage their child’s use of technology, and will include information about developmentally appropriate, and inappropriate, social media interactions.
Please note: We will have a few PTO announcements and a review / vote on the 2013 – 2014 PTO budget at the beginning of the meeting.
