RED RIBBON WEEK
To celebrate our commitment to living a drug free lifestyle, all Willard elementary schools will participate in a unified Sprit Week. Here are a rundown of the themes for each day:
Digital Citizenship: Digital Footprint
A digital footprint is a record of everything an individual does online, including the content they upload. Online, information can migrate, persist, and resurface years later. Discuss with your children the risks of sharing inappropriate information online and to think critically about what they choose to post and share about themselves online.
Read the Family Tip Sheet: Common Sense on Privacy and Digital Footprints to learn more. Leave a positive digital footprint and share your story on Facebook or Twitter with the hashtags: #LifeReadyWillard #digcit
Have a conversation with your child about selfies. Even though taking selfies is a part of growing up digital, that doesn’t mean all self-portraits are okay. Like all behaviors that children and teens test out, parents should help them to learn the limits and guidelines for which types of pictures are acceptable and which are not. Get a good sense of your child's online life and clarify your expectations. The material that children and adolescents view online, selfies included, can be influential in molding their sense of self.
