Marshall Simonds to host social media monitoring workshop for families

Marshall Simonds Middle School staff members aim to help families navigate through their child or children’s web presence through a workshop on Thursday, Jan. 10 at 6:30 p.m.

The event, which will take place at the school at 114 Winn St., will be led by Assistant Principal Josh Murphy and Student Resource Officers Keith Sheppard and Vito Costa, before the school’s Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) group holds its meeting that evening.

Principal Cari Perchase said the purpose of hosting the event is in response to the Department of Justice’s student and family presentations. Similar events have been held at the school in previous years, Perchase said, and the event will focus on providing “practical tips” to parents and families.
“This is meant to be a hands-on workshop to assist families with monitoring their child's social media and online presence,” she said.
