The Youth Center on base has produced a wonderful coloring book. The idea is that the students have created the coloring book with images of the things they wish they had known about South Dakota before they got here. They even did the drawings themselves. Feel free to print it off and make as many copies as you would like. It can really help make a child feel less apprehensive about an upcoming move.
If you have never heard of the Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library, you are not alone. This resource is only used by about 30% of those who qualify in the Black Hills. Just fill out the form, sign it and send it in. It takes about 60 days, but after that your child will receive a free, age appropriate book each month until their 5th birthday. It really is a good way to help them become interested in reading. I am attaching the form you need. As a reminder you will still need to fill out a form after you PCS even if your child is already on the program. The Post Office does not forward the books. You can read more at: http://www.unitedwayblackhills.org/imagination-library/
The Round table will begin with an opportunity to bring any education related concerns forward. We will also provide a $20 or less recipe, which will be available for sampling. Following this, or 1800, Ms. Hollie Strand from Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC), an international and interagency law enforcement organization, will share with us a presentation covering the following topics:
- Navigating the net: digital footprints, social media and what to share/keep private
- Cybercrimes: Cyber-stalking, sextortion, child pornography, child exploitation, sexting and online threats.
- Cyberbullying: What it is and what to do.
