Internet Safety for Kids and Families Program (Flyer)

The following message is regarding an upcoming Internet Safety event being held on Tuesday, October 18th from 7:00pm - 8:30pm in the Westwood High School Auditorium:


Join us for an evening with Westwood High School students and Lynette Owens, founder and global director of Trend Micro’s Internet Safety for Kids & Families program, as we tackle some of the most common, confusing, and challenging issues facing young people growing up in a constantly internet-connected world. How does social media impact peer and family relationships? What are the expectations of online privacy for ourselves and for others? What are some pitfalls and hacks for making sure we are in control of technology and it is not in control of us? How do we use the Internet fully while keeping in mind our futures?


Hear some engaging discussions and come prepared with your questions and concerns. We highly encourage students grades 4-8 and their parents to attend this event together.  Our hope is that by discussing these issues as a community, we will understand and find new and more ways to support our students so they don’t just survive but thrive online.


Box Tops for Education (Letter and Products)

The following message is from Emily Murphy, the parent coordinator of the Box Tops for Education fundraiser:


Hello Deerfield Families!


It's time to start clipping and saving those BOX TOPS!  Box Tops for Education is a program that offers an easy way for Deerfield to earn money for our PTO. There are two ways YOU can participate:


Clip the Box Top coupons from many everyday products that you probably have in your home. We will need to clip the coupons, collect them in a baggie and send them into school. When we redeem these coupons, Box Tops for Education will give Deerfield 10 cents per coupon. See the attached flyer for participating brands.


Shop at your favorite online stores through Box Tops MarketplaceSM. Up to 8% of each qualifying purchase is automatically donated to Deerfield. There is no additional cost and many discounts and exclusive deals are offered. Some participating stores are: Target, Walmart, Nordstrom, Ann Taylor, Best Buy, etc.


You may submit the Box Top coupons all year long but our first submission deadline is October 15th. Please start sending in your Box Top coupons today!
