The students and parents of the EMily A. Fifield School had a terrific time during our Cyber-Safety Night. The interactive presentations and fun games have helped to educate all about the importance of knowing and understanding cyber safety. The students are still talking about the movie and how much fun they had playing the internet safety game with the "clickers." THe Fiifeld community can't wait to see what is developed next by our Cyber-Safety Friends.
