Be INTERNET Awesome!

With students online more and more, internet safety is important to understand for even our youngest students. This month in Counseling, Grizzlies are learning about internet safety.

At St. Mary’s, we believe in partnering with parents and preparing our students to:

  • Think critically and evaluate apps, websites and other digital content. 
  • Protect themselves from online threats, including bullying and scams. 
  • Get smart about sharing: what, when, how, and with whom. 
  • Be kind and respectful toward other people online, including respecting their privacy.
  • Ask for help with tricky situations from a parent or other trusted adult. 

We have introduced students to Be Internet Awesome, a multifaceted program designed to teach kids the skills they need to be safe and smart online. Developed by Google in partnership with educators, researchers, and online‑safety experts at The Net Safety Collaborative and iKeepSafe.org, Be Internet Awesome provides fun, age‑appropriate lessons and resources, including Interland, an interactive video game that reinforces these important skills:

Let’s make sure we are all SAFE online!
