Cyber Safety – Oct. 17

At All Saints we are blessed with a strong and active Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) focused
on two clear objectives: fostering a sense of community among the families in our school and
raising funds in support of school initiatives.

General Assembly Meetings of the PTO are held four times per year and include informational
sessions on a variety of topics. It is our goal to offer a series of high quality presentations each
year that provide inspiration, resources and guidance for parents on topics such as child
development, spiritual formation, technology, and safety.

Our first presentation this year will take place on Tuesday, October 17th beginning at 7:00
p.m. in the Parish Activities Center. I am pleased to share with you that representatives from
local law enforcement will speak on the topic of Cyber Safety.

This is a topic that we address every couple of years as it is one that is constantly changing as
technology continues to evolve. With this in mind, I strongly encourage one parent from each
family to attend this session. Our students are surrounded by technology and increasingly have
access to a world of information through mobile devices. As such, it is important that we
maintain an awareness of the risks and dangers that exist as well as strategies for safe-guarding
our young people and instill in them the importance of responsible use of technology.

I hope that many of you will be able to join us as we learn more about this important topic.
Parents who attend any of our PTO meetings earn Stewardship Shares (1 hour = 1 share).
