Presented by: Jesse Weinberger; author and owner of OvernightGeek University

As a result of Jesse Weinberger's "Don't Be A Sheep" presentation on February 3, we have received so many requests from parents about having a follow-up workshop. We are pleased to let you know that on April 27th at 6:30 we will continue this critical discussion about Internet safety. Please join Churchill's principals and members of our mental health team and technology integration specialists in a presentation about: 

•The results of Jesse Weinberger's anonymous survey of the online practices of Churchill's 5th-12th grade students
•Resources you can use as a parent to promote Internet safety for your child 

•What we have been doing at Churchill for the past several years to educate our students about safe online practices. 


Part 3 of our Internet Safety program will be a joint parent-child workshop in the Fall 2015.  Registration fees have been waived for this workshop. We hope you will consider making a donation to The Churchill Center Reading Initiative, an after-school program for public school students in grades 1-3. This program is funded by grants and donations. Please see website for more information.

***This workshop is for Churchill parents only***
