DCES 3rd-5th Grade Families CyberSkills

Dear DCES 3rd-5th Grade Families,

 

This week we had the Be Kind Crew present to K-5th grade students to reinforce our school-wide PBIS and the Be Kind Pledge. Our cubbies were challenged to pay their kindness forward in three areas (to someone at school, to someone in the community, and to someone at home). We look forward to our next visit on December 2nd, geared to 3rd-5th grade students. This next presentation will be on the topic of CyberSkills for all 3rd-5th grade students to attend during the school day.

 

As we all know, cell phones and the internet have opened the world to all of us. As a result, students have information at their fingertips that may not be appropriate for their age. This includes social media apps, internet sites, and messaging apps.

 

Below are some websites that may help foster conversations with your child about cyber safety. Please take some time to review these sites and speak to your children about your family rules about using their phones.
