Renwick to host social media event


GARDEN PLAIN – There are many positive benefits to social media, but there can be just as many downsides. Adults and students alike can use tips to help navigate social media in a safe and positive way.
“Think Before You Post” is a program put together by Sports in Kansas. Students in the sixth through 12th grades in Renwick schools will attend the presentation this month.
In addition, Renwick and Sports in Kansas will host a pair of presentations for parents and community members.
The program will cover a number of topics, including the positives and negatives of social media; online reputation and social media etiquette; viral posting; communicating without your phone; cyberbullying; and more.
The sessions are free. The first will be Aug. 29 at Andale High School, and the second will be Aug. 30 at Garden Plain High School. Both sessions begin at 6:30 p.m.
