• The Public Schools of the Tarrytowns will be celebrating "Digital Wellness Month" across the
    District during the month of October.  The goal of this month is to promote digital wellness and create shared learning opportunities for all students K-12.  A series of lessons are designed to help students and staff discuss how to be mindful consumers of technology. 
     

     

    • The first week  is digital wellness, how to be healthy and well while using technology.

    • The second week is digital citizenship, how to interact with other people – as a group and in society – in a moral, legal, and responsible way.

    • The third week is online etiquette, how to talk with people and have a presence online that represents ourselves.

    • The fourth week is online safety, how to stay safe on the Internet and how to protect personal data.
