Next PTSA Meeting

Dear parents and guardians, 

You are invited to our next NBMS PTSA meeting on Tuesday, March 13 at 7:30 pm at the media center.  We will have a special presentation  by Barbara Huth from Common Sense Education (https://www.commonsense.org/education/digital-citizenship).

Plugged in Parents Presentation

It’s not hard to find reasons to worry about how media and technology are impacting kids.  How can we move beyond alarmist headlines to understand how it’s really affecting our kids?  And more importantly, what we can do about it?  Join us to learn about:

  • How kids and teens are using media and tech to create, consume, communicate, and learn.  
  • The impact of media and tech on kids’ health and development.  
  • How to guide your kids in making safe and respectful digital choices.
  • How to better understand, engage and communicate with your kids about their use of social media.

Hope to see you there!
