Hello Beaubien Parents/Guardians,

The Beaubien Culture & Climate Committee’s goal is to be a partner in keeping our children safe. Our current priority is to raise awareness about electronic devices and their impact on children. In response to this goal, we put together this list of resources to share with you. It includes information about keeping students safe in regard to electronic devices and the internet. For those of you who attended the viewing of Screenagers, we hope you found it enlightening. A big thank you to our PTO for funding this documentary to show our 6th-8th graders.
