Calling all Warrior parents!
Do you have questions about social media and the impact it has on your child? Are you concerned about your child’s online activity and how you can best manage it? Do you desire to be more educated about your family’s internet safety/responsibility?
PTF is pleased to bring Katie Greer of KL Greer Consulting to the LRCA campus on Thursday, August 31 to address these issues and to empower our community to navigate the treacherous waters of internet & social media use. Katie will address students 3rd grade-12th grade during the school day with thoughtfully tailored presentations that accommodate developmental and emotional differences in each group. Then parents will gather in Warrior Hall at 7:00 p.m. to hear from Katie and participate in a Q&A session.
Please join us for this informative and dynamic presentation! It’s a night you do not want to miss!!
