‘Social Responsibility & Social Networking’ at Cole: As social media continues to evolve and digital platforms become increasingly utilized for education, students, parents, educators, and communities need to be prepared for this new and constantly evolving digital environment. In an effort to educate students of both the perils and opportunities that exist, members of the EGHS, Cole, Eldredge, and Hanaford PTGs, Citizens Who Care, and Bob Houghtaling present Dr. Larry Fillipelli, who will talk about the social responsibilities with social networking. Topics discussed will also include the dangers of posting inappropriate pictures and messages on social networking sites, sexting and the consequences of poor behavior choices online. At Cole Middle School. 7 p.m.
