What's "Like" Got to Do with It?
Learn how to help your child be responsible and confident in this digital age. Please join us to hear Laurie Wolk* (SHS class of '87) talk about raising confident kids in the digital age. She will discuss the challenges that both you and your kids face in today's 24/7-connected world and show you that by creating simple rules, role modeling the behavior you want to see and developing social and emotional skills we can help our kids to make confident and compassionate decisions. Her presentation will provide you the tools to take charge of your family's digital life.

Look Before you "Like"
Jerry Crisci, Director of Instructional Technology and Innovation and Co-Director of the Center for Innovation, will explain Scarsdale School's existing policies concerning technology, including the soon-to-be-introduced Social Media Policy. Hear about the rapidly changing landscape at school and beyond the classroom walls. Questions are welcome.
