Please join us as the PTA/PTSA present parent workshops with Janell Burley Hofmann, author of iRules on November 7th and 8th. For more information on these workshops, click here for more info.
Dear Edgemont Families,
No matter the age of our children today, we, as parents, all have questions about the role technology plays (and will continue to play) in our kids’ lives. As part of the district's strategic goal focused on social-emotional learning, I’m excited to announce that this year, we will be working with digital health educator and author, Janell Burley Hofmann. A leader in the field of educating and parenting in the digital age and author of iRules, Janell offers thoughtful insights and specific strategies for navigating the unique challenges children face today.
Thanks to generous sponsorship by our PTA/PTSA, Janell will be in our district working with staff, students and parents from November 6th-8th. We hope you will take advantage of this opportunity to work with her, and become part of our conversation about social and emotional health in today’s school culture.
On November 6th, our district has a Superintendent's Conference Day scheduled (no school for students), and Janell will be working extensively with the entire staff throughout that day. In the days and evenings that follow, she will be working with students and parents, and I hope you’ll participate.
There are two opportunities to attend parent workshops with Janell. If you are interested in attending either one, please sign up by clicking the workshop link below:
Sign up for Workshop 1: Wednesday, November 7th from 6-7:30pm in the EHS LGI (ground fl. of library)
Sign up for Workshops 2: Thursday, November 8th from 12-1pm - EHS Library
In anticipation of these Edgemont parent workshops, Janell is very interested in how she can best address our community’s specific concerns. Please take a couple of minutes to fill out this brief survey, and submit your responses by Friday, October 19th. Your thoughtful responses to this survey will help ensure that Janell’s workshops target the needs of Edgemont’s students and parents.
With phones in their pockets and Chromebooks in their backpacks, our children are growing up in exciting and challenging times. I hope you’ll join us in working with Janell!
Please let me know if you have any questions.
Director of Technology
