On Monday, September 26 at 7:00 p.m., Liz Repking from Cyber Safety Consulting will present at Monroe Middle School. This evening is open to all parents in the district.

Liz will speak to parents about children's online interactions, the positive and negative implications of technology and parenting with more understanding about the culture of technology.

The presentation will be helpful to all parents whether you have a child just starting to use the internet and devices or a child that has every social media app and is online all the time.

Please join us Monday night so together, we can learn how to better parent in the hyper digital age. More information about Liz is available in the flyer attached.
