Title: "The Tea" on Social Media Awareness
Kids today are being faced with a harsh reality that many generations before them have never experienced before; a reality that has a potential long-lasting damaging effects on teenagers emotionally, physically, and academically. Students are being exposed to a wide range of content as they work and play online with platforms such as snapchat and Instagram. We encourage every parent to a part of proactive efforts to be educated on the use of social media accounts; learning the ins and outs of popular social platforms, discover various other apps students use, and have an awareness of the dangers of social media in the lives of our youth. Join Katie Cahill, RAS Elementary Teacher, for this important workshop on social media awareness.
