Want to learn more about the online world and how your child fits into it?

Join us on Zoom from 6:30-7:30 p.m. on October 14, 21, and 28 for the "Be Internet Awesome" online parent workshop presented by Project HELP.   

When our kids are young, we do our best to help them get the most out of the Internet while protecting them from the risks and downsides of the online world. As children mature into teen-hood, our role shifts to helping them learn to make their own safe and thoughtful decisions as they navigate their digital lives. We believe in partnering with parents and preparing our students to:

  • Think critically and evaluate websites, email, and other content online.
  • Protect themselves from online threats, including bullying and scams.
  • Get smart about sharing: what, when, how, and with whom.
  • Be kind and respectful toward other people online, including respecting their privacy.
  • Ask for help with tricky situations from a parent or other trusted adult.

This program is funded through the BSD2 Full Service Community Schools Program in partnership with YWCA of Metropolitan Chicago's Project HELP, Metropolitan Family Services of DuPage, and Elmhurst Community Unit School District 205.
