Cyber Sensible Workshop created: Feb. 5, 2019

Related imageThe Cyber Sensible Workshop for Grace Community Church will be directed towards the youth in the community with parents welcome and encouraged to attend. It will cover common teen missteps (oversharing, connecting with strangers, constant comparisons to others, device overuse and sexting) and solutions to avoid or correct online mistakes.

Getting online gives you access to the whole world right at your fingertips. This is really exciting, but can also be dangerous. Before you enter cyberspace, it is a good idea to learn the fundamentals for the responsible use of technology; for fun, entertainment, education, interaction, and connection. We will discuss what Digital Wellness means; how to employ the safety and privacy settings available; how to develop a positive online reputation, managing screen time and notifications, maintaining a healthy tech diet; avoiding online dangers; tech etiquette; and ways to capitalize on the opportunities tech provides. The goal is to empower you to protect yourself online so you can fully benefit from a globally connected community.

Date: March 24, 2019
Time: 12:45P – 2:15P
Speaker: Denise Lisi DeRosa

Raiders After Midnight (Post Prom Party) will take place on Saturday, May 4, 11 pm – Sunday, May 5, 4 am, Columbia Gym in Clarksville, MD. Every high school PTSA in Howard County sponsors a post prom party. It offers a safe environment for students to continue celebrating with their friends. This year, we have renamed it “Raiders After Midnight” to encourage all juniors and seniors to attend this event, whether or not they attend Prom itself (sponsored by the school; will be held at The Hotel at Arundel Preserve). This is the PTSA’s largest event and require many hands to make it happen – games, food, prizes, and more. I ask you to:

  1. Mark your calendar for the event. Discuss it with your student and their friends. Encourage them to attend. Cost is $10.00 per student. If you know a family in financial need, contact Mr. Motley and he will make sure those students have the same opportunity.
  2. Donate to this event. We rely on donations from parents and businesses to host this event: https://www.atholtonptsa.org/donate/
  3. Recommend a business for the PTSA to contact for a donation. For example, I have already contacted the Hickory Ridge Community Center (Columbia Assocaiton) since I live in the neighborhood.   Do you live in a HOA? Do you have a favorite business which serves Atholton families? Do you know a business that would like to advertise to Atholton families? Send your suggestions to president@atholtonptsa.org.
  4. Consider how you can help. For the next month, the PTSA must have volunteers step forward to serve as follows: (1) Fundraising Chair (2) Ticket Sales coordinator (3) Insurance/Forms coordinator Let me emphasize that we cannot proceed without these positions filled. You can share the position with a friend or neighbor. You can recommend a friend or neighbor.
  5. Join me for the next “Raiders After Dark” planning meeting on Wednesday, February 6, 7 pm at Columbia Gym, 6151 Day Long Ln, Clarksville, MD 21029, for a walk through.
