Pipestone Flyer

    Nicole Thomson – MacRae the Family School Liaison Worker (FSL) and Youth Coach Amy Thomson, will be holding Parent “Tech & Tea “Night in the Griffiths – Scott Middle School Library the evening of April 7th, 2014 from 7:00 – 9:00. Coffee, tea and light snacks will be provided.

    WIFI was turned on at Griffiths – Scott Middle School the beginning of February, students who agreed to the Acceptable Use Expectations will be able to login. Not surprisingly, the more students use technology the more parents have been calling the school with questions about their children’s online activities and the applications that they are using. “Parents want to know about the applications and sites their kids are using to make sure that they are safe” says Thomson – MacRae “and I wanted to provide a forum to address the concerns of parents.”

    Information about acronyms used for texting/messaging as well as various websites, programs and applications commonly used by students such as Vine, Twitter, YouTube, Pheed and many more will be provided.

    This free event is open to the community of Millet, but first priority will be given to those with a child attending the Millet or Griffiths – Scott school. 

    Please contact Nicole Thomson – MacRae at either 387-4101 or 387-4696 if you have any questions or plan to attend.
