I would be derelict in my duty as a former co-president if I did not pass this on. I encourage you to share this with your friends across the community and around the area, as well. We are truly luck to have the opportunity for events such as these each year.
Our district’s United Parents group in collaboration with the School District of Cheltenham Township will be presenting a workshop on Cyberbullying on Thursday, January 7th at 7pm at the Cedarbrook Middle School Auditorium, Longfellow Ave, Wyncote. The featured keynote speaker is Tina Meier, Founder of the Megan Meier Foundation. The mission of the foundation is to bring awareness, education and promote positive change to children, parents, and education in response to the ongoing bullying and cyberbullying in our children’s daily environment. Ms. Meier will share the tragic story of her daughter’s response to being bullied online.
At the event, you will be able to increase your understanding of cyberbullying and its impact, to explore strategies to prevent and respond to cyberbullying, and to learn about key legal and criminal issues. As an added bonus, during the day on that Thursday, Tina Meier will be at Cedarbrook Middle School to talk to our 7th & 8th graders. UPG invites and encourages all families with children from kindergarten to 12th grade to join the community for the evening workshop. For more information, visit the UPG website.
