10 Top Teen Social Media Apps Parents Should Know About
Josh Evans is a Youth Minister who hosts a blog with information for parents about social media, teen use of it, and its potential negative and positive attributes.
His article: Top Places Our Teens Are At Online lists some sites you may or may not be aware of as a parent. Your child may or may not be active on these sites or may have friends who are. This quick article (which is just a snap shot of teen use at the time it was written) is a good look at what these sites are, how they are used, why teens might find them popular, and what are the potential hazards that parents should keep in mind, if they have youth using these sites.

From Jesus to Christ
PBS produced a series on Jesus and Early Christian History. These are two topics that are part of the Sunday/Monday Religious Education Curriculum. Grade 8 focuses on Jesus in the New Testament and Grade 9 focuses on Church History from Early Christianity to the Modern Day.
This PBS/Frontline Website offers information on Early Christianity under the headings Portrait of Jesus' World and The First Christians. An overview of the Four Gospels is also available.
Consider helping out as an RE Hall Monitor
An easy way to see what an immediate need is for Sunday or Monday Nights is to check the GENIUS SIGN-UP website for Sunday or Monday Night Hall Monitors.
Click on the LOGO below to see what dates are still in need of Hall Monitors and sign up.
A minimum of 2 Hall Monitors per class period is needed, but more are welcome. Room #1 is available during class times, if you need to bring a family member with you.
Much of my volunteer Office Aide work and Spanish Translation assistance also is done through using the Hall Monitor Sign Up.
