Strough Middle School
 held their Title 1 parent meeting tonight (November 1st), which was facilitated by Principal, Tracy O'Rourke. The evening included a delicious spaghetti dinner and dessert for families.

After dinner there were activities for children that were supervised by staff and students from National Junior Honor Society, while parents listened to a presentation on Internet Safety. 

Keeping children safe online is important and the topic Ashley Simons, Community Educator for the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children addressed. She offered tips for parents on, Internet safety, personal safety, sexting and bullying. 


Sharing too much: Avoid TMI. Don’t post anything too personal or embarrassing. Protect your space. Use privacy settings and don’t accept just anyone as a friend. Don’t be that kid who gets suspended for posting something stupid online.

Cyberbullying: Don’t be mean. Gossiping doesn’t make you cool. Ignore. Block. Tell. Ignore mean or threatening messages, block the sender, and tell a trusted adult who can help you report them. Speak Up if your friends are cyberbullying someone.

Online Predators: Recognize the difference between cute and creepy. An older guy who wants to date someone much younger is just creepy. Don’t just sit there- REPORT anyone who asks to meet you in person to the police and

Trusted Adults: Talk to your parents or guardians about what you’re doing online. They’re not as bad as you think.
