Parent Presentation: Helping Your Child Navigate Digital Dilemmas and Manage their Digital Footprint

Tuesday, November 2, 7:00-8:30 PM, Location:  Gross Catholic H.S. Auditorium

A key aspect of Digital Citizenship is thinking critically when faced with digital dilemmas. Navigating these challenges isn’t just about rules and procedures; it’s about character. Children won’t support someone being bullied online if they don’t have empathy. They won’t see a problem with plagiarism and pornography if they lack integrity.  Paul Sanfrancesco will present on Social Media/ Cyberbullying and the appropriate use of technology at home.  This session will support parents in helping child(ren) connect challenging digital dilemmas to social and emotional skills through discussion questions.

Mercy High School Open House for 6th, 7th & 8th grade girls and their parents is on Sunday, November 7th from 1:00-3:30 p.m.  Our Open House features presentations by Mercy’s administration, and tours with a Student Ambassador to meet our students, faculty, and coaches. For more details and to pre-register, please go to:  https://www.mercyhigh.org/admissions/open-house.cfm.
