Please join us on Feb. 11th at 6:30 pm at the Wood Road Library to celebrate Safer Internet Day 2019, which promotes safer and more responsible use of online technology and mobile phones/tablets among children and young people. During this event you’ll learn about the importance of digital safety and the Smart Talk, an interactive website created by National PTA and LifeLock, a Symantec company, to help families and kids talk about using digital devices responsibly and decide a few important questions together, like: What are they allowed to post on social media?

Once those questions have been answered, a custom agreement is created, which can be printed and signed so that all of the ground rules are easily remembered by everyone.
A pizza dinner will start at 6:30 pm followed by a presentation with a couple of guest speakers and a student panel at 7 pm.
This is an event open to parents and students of the Ballston Spa community. There will be activities for the younger siblings to enjoy during the event. We hope to see you then! If you have any questions, please reach out to us at email@example.com.
