Gator Gab – Week at a Glance for Week #18 – Jan. 14th-18th, 2019

Below is a peak at our week ahead followed by some important information items – have a wonderful week Gators!

Social Media Safety Tips – Privacy Settings are Key as are remembering your “Personal Digital Footprint” Online – Thanks Constable Molnar!

We want to extend our heartfelt thanks to Constable Molnar for sharing her wisdom to keep our Gr. 5-8 students safe on the internet and when using social media! She challenged the students to:

  • check their privacy settings to make sure they are as restricted as can be as you never know who you are interacting with on the internet
  • Never give out personal information on the internet (details about who you are and/or photos)
  • Do you actually know all of your followers? Reduce the numbers of followers you have to only those very close friends and family you know
  • T.H.I.N.K. before you text as this represents your “Personal Digital Footprint” Online and or your character Online and can positively or negatively impact others… so always T.H.I.N.K. before you text … is it T: is it True; H; is it Helpful; I: is it in Inspirational; N: is it Necessary; and K: is it Kind? Great advice for our Gators!
