Galion City Schools is thrilled to welcome nationally acclaimed Jesse Weinberger, a former software programmer, and authority on Internet Safety, for an informative session about online safety on April 24. The author of “The Boogeyman Exists: And He’s in Your Child’s Back Pocket, 2nd Edition,” will be covering topics about value versus the risk of tech use, mental health impact, cyberbullying, popular apps, extreme content, and how to monitor and supervise your child’s technology use.
Before the presentation, parents can meet with Jesse, get a sneak peek of her upcoming talk, and enjoy a free spaghetti dinner. Additionally, Jesse’s book will be available for purchase, for which $5 from each sale will be donated back to the school. At its conclusion, door prizes are awarded as well! To top it off—all student’s parents/guardians who attend will receive a Jeans Pass for their child, which can be used every Friday throughout the rest of the year.
“We are excited to offer parents more insight into the hidden world of tech and the impact that it can have on our children,” said Superintendent Jennifer Allerding. “Technology is something that is part of our everyday lives. Parents need to understand the risks associated with technology to be prepared to protect their children.”
To ensure the safety and quality of the presentation, no children aged 1-20 years old will be allowed in the gym during the session. However, we will offer free childcare services for kids in grades K–5 through Galion High School student organizations.
Galion City parents are invited to enjoy a free spaghetti dinner on Monday, April 24th, in the High School Cafeteria at 6 p.m., followed by an informative presentation in the gym with renowned internet safety expert Jesse Weinberger starting at 7 p.m. For further details, visit https://www.galionschools.org/.
