Students at the middle school recently participated in an assembly featuring crime prevention specialists from the San Jose Police Department. The main topic was Internet safety, but
other forms of digital media safety were also covered. The SJPD experts urged students to use the Internet responsibly.
Digital media, including television and radio, has a considerable effect on children, one that is often overlooked. A letter was sent home in conjunction with the assembly asking parents to discuss these issues with their children.
One of the major themes was cyber bullying and what students can do to identify and stop it. Students were asked to think about how they use the Internet and television, and were urged to talk with their parents about how media can influence their choices.
