NEWS AND ANNOUNCEMENTS

  • The Common Trust Speaker Series event, featuring Devorah Heitner, Ph.D., founder of Raising Digital Natives and author of Screenwise: Helping Kids Thrive (and Survive) in Their Digital World, is TOMORROW, March 6, at 6 p.m. We understand that raising kids in the Digital Age is a topic of interest for many, and Dr. Heitner’s talk is an opportunity to hear a realistic yet optimistic perspective on helping kids navigate reputation, friendships and exclusion in the age of texting and social media. Please plan to attend this informative presentation.

 

  • The first lunch and learn session about navigating parenting in the Digital Age is THIS Wednesday, March 8. Dr. Dave Verhaagen of Southeast Psych will lead a two-part series, A Parent’s Guide to Technology and Social Media, to take a deeper dive into this important topic. The second session is scheduled for Tuesday, March 14. Both sessions will be held from 11:30 a.m. - 1 p.m. A complimentary light lunch will be served. Please RSVP to Kate Sullivan, sullivank@oakhillschool.org, if you plan to attend.
