SHS Parent University proudly presents....


"Social Media 101"


Tuesday, September 26, 6:00 pm

SHS Media Center



Session Description: 

Today’s youth have access to the internet and social media at their fingertips. That instant access sometimes makes it hard for parents to stay up-to-date. Join USC Social Media Strategist and SHS Alumna, CJ Lake, to take a look at how parents and students can have a positive relationship with today’s most popular social media platforms, including Instagram, Snapchat, and Twitter. Ms. Lake will share how teenagers are using social media today, ways that you can engage with SHS through social media, how to check safety features on your teen’s social media accounts, assist you with setting up your own accounts if you like, and much more. Remember to bring your own device!
