Social Media Check-up
It’s always a good idea to talk to your child about their social media use and remind them to be careful when interacting with others online. This includes checking their privacy settings, avoiding sharing personal information with strangers, and being cautious about accepting friend requests or following accounts that they don’t know (and, when they do know a name, making sure it is who the person says they are). We also recommend that you encourage your child to search for their name online periodically to see if there are any fake or unauthorized accounts using their name or information. If they find anything concerning, they should report it to a trusted adult right away.
By working together, we can help ensure that our students stay safe and secure online. Thank you for your cooperation and support.
Every Woman Counts
International Women’s Day will be celebrated March 8, 2023! This year’s national theme, “Every Woman Counts,” is a reminder that “all women, from all ages and walks of life, have a place in Canadian society, including in the economic, social, and democratic spheres.” Women and Gender Equality Canada has created a learning guide and online course, “Canadian Women in History,” to help educators and youth in grades 6 to 12 embark on a learning journey that shares inspiring stories of Canadian women and features key figures, events, and gender equality milestones in Canadian history. The Government of Canada has also curated two repositories: the Women of Impact in Canada gallery and the Women in Canadian History: A Timelineshowcasing the achievements of Canadian women in various fields such as politics, sciences, and the arts. Be sure to download the International Women’s Day digital toolkit to help celebrate the day through social media, and include @CASSWiL and #inspirationalwomen in all posts.
Have a wonderful week, Connect!
