Programs offer insight on issues

Bexley Middle School will host a free screening of the documentary film, Bully, at 6:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 28, in Bexley High School's Schottenstein Theater, 326 S. Cassingham Road.

BMS has used the film in various forms as a teaching tool since its release in spring 2012. The October 28 program is open to the public; BMS students must be accompanied by a parent/guardian or bring a signed permission form, available in the school office.

In November, Cassingham will present a session, "Parenting in a Cyber World," for all district parents of elementary students. The program is scheduled for 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Nov. 21 in the Cassingham Library, 250 S. Cassingham Road.

Staffers at Cassingham Elementary enlisted Rhonda Moskowitz of Practical Solutions Parent Coaching to help Bexley parents and guardians with challenges that result from a digital world.

Moskowitz's free program is called "Rings, Dings, and Pings: Parenting in a Cyber World." It offers details of research about how children learn and the impact of screens on learning and behavior and also suggests how families can use technology to support family life.
