Child Safety Workshop

Dear Parent/Guardian,

In January, we have invited the Child Abuse Prevention Program (CAPP) to the PS7 Academy to perform a child safety workshop to teach our children with the use of puppets.  This workshop will be held virtually on Tuesday, January 18, 2022 for 5th graders, Wednesday, January 19, 2022 for our 3rd graders, and Thursday, January 20, 2022 for 4th graders. 

The objective of this workshop is aimed to show students how to be proactive through the use of puppets.  The program gives our students clear steps on how to stay safe and how to ask for help.  This workshop allows the student to relate to the puppets and establishes a safe environment in which they are eager to ask questions.

We will also be hosting TWO parent workshops virtually to help provide families with strategies on how to best help your child be safe online as well as positive ways to discipline.  

Specifics are as follows:

  • Workshop 1: Alternatives to Corporal Punishment
    • Friday, January 21st at 10:00 am 
  • Workshop 2: Online Exploitation Prevention (Online Safety Tips)
    • Friday, January 28th at 10:00 am 

The zoom link for BOTH workshops is as follows:

Meeting ID: 842 6988 4524

Sincerely,

Ms. Brody, School Counselor
