TMS STUDENT STORE

      

The Trafford Middle School student store will be open Wednesdays during the school year.  The store is located in the cafeteria and offers an assortment of school supplies. We are also selling “Spirit Wear”from Natales' to show our support for the Penn Trafford School District. These are the same items that we sold during our open house in August. The store is being operated by our Middle School Student Council members under the supervision of adult volunteers.

 

 

 

 

CREATING RESPONSIBLE KIDS ON SMARTPHONES

 

 

 

 

“If you can’t explain it to a six year old, you don’t understand it yourself.”

- Albert Einstein

Life for a teenager is vastly different than it was ten years ago.  Teens and Tweens today have an unlimited access to information, apps and websites that can be wonderfully helpful, but also lead to concerning behaviors if parents and educators don’t have the knowledge to teach young people how to behave responsible in this new cyber-playground.

Awareness is the key to learning and learning leads to knowledge. And knowledge is power, so they say. Einstein once said, “If you can’t explain it to a six year old, you don’t understand it yourself.” There are many six year olds out there explaining cyber-devices and cyber-practices to adults. Let me help flip the equation for you.

 

If you saw a text message a teen had sent in cryptic lingo would you know what they were talking about?

 

Do you know of the latest apps/sites such as?

Facebook   Tumblr Snapchat   Instagram Sarhah  VSCO Oovoo Omegle   Kik Ask.fm

 

“Creating Responsible Kids on Smartphones”

This training defines categories of social networking that teacher and parents should be aware of and listening for with their students and children. The presentation will review image boards, untraceable texting/sexting, internet predators, gossip/rumor spreading, video chatting, blogs, eating disorders, self-harm and suicide. The most current social media sites such as Instagram, Sarahah, VSCO,  Tumblr, Kik, and Snapchat will be defined and youth culture and mental health practices on these sites/apps will be discussed. This presentation will raise the awareness of teen culture on the internet and how adults can communicate and educate with youth to be responsible digital citizens
