Cybersafety with 6th graders...October note to parents

The following is an email that I sent to the entire sixth grade parent body after we did our first cybersafety session in advising for the 06-07 academic year. I typically will send a note home like this after each advising session.

Dear 6th Grade Parents-

We began the first of our three part series on Internet Safety in advising this morning. We discussed the importance of protecting our personal information and potential consequences of our online actions. We’ll be meeting again on January 5th and April 3rd to continue our discussions on this topic.

Students were given a “homework” assignment in advising today—the assignment involves reading through an Internet safety pledge with you. Students should return the signed bottom portion of this slip to his/her advisor by Friday, October 13th. I’m also attaching a copy of the safety pledge to this email.

Also, please be aware that the students will be designing bumper stickers to raise community awareness about this important issue. We’ll take the 1-2 most effective bumper sticker designs in each advising section and send them off to a printer. The bumper stickers will then be passed out to parents at the January Internet safety presentation for parents.

Thank you,

Matt Montagne
