The third speaker in our mental health and social media series will come to St. Nicholas on Tuesday, April 17. Her workshop will cover the following:
- Teaches parents and educators about how to protect kids online with an understanding of what kids are using and how it is being used
- Empowers adults with the knowledge of current online software and practices (not guaranteed to make you cool but at least you’ll know what they are talking about)
- Understand how privacy settings work, including which parts of an account can be monitored by a parent/teacher, and which parts are blocked from public eyes
Babysitting will be offered. To sign up, please go to: https://goo.gl/forms/eru3in9Q6svVfVnz1

Your participation helps children and youth with special needs gain access to life-changing therapy, essential equipment, and assistance for their families and so much more. This year, the Rotary Club will also focus on helping schools with individual projects to assist students’ learning.
