Cyberbullying Awareness

On Thursday, September 13th, staff and parents of Lee Elementary will be joining Highland Park Elementary for a special training on cyberbullying.  Reggie Cajayon, School Safety Specialist at Texas State University, will be presenting.  Cyberbullying is the use of technology - cell phones, texts, computers, emails, chats, etc. - to make someone feel bad or unsafe.  It can include sending mean or threatening messages, spreading rumors, purposely leaving people out, impersonating others to embarrass them, and many more.  It is extremely damaging and harmful with victims suffering from low self-esteem, lack of confidence, and depression.  I created this bulletin board to raise awareness and remind students and parents to T H I N K before they use technology.
