We are trying to reach parents and families of children who attend WRDSB schools to inform them about this event! These Digital Citizenship topics are so frequently questioned and requested by parents, and we want to reach as many families as possible with our promotion.
Information has been shared on the board website, school websites and the WRDSB Facebook page. It is being promoted on Twitter – our hashtag is #wrdsbdigcit. WRAPSC and PIC members are informed and are sharing with their networks. They have received an email about the event, and a poster which should be displayed on the bulletin board in your school.
Again, we would like to ask for your support in reaching parents in your school community.
I thank you and hope to see your school represented at the Summit!
