Dear New Parents,
We hope that this letter finds you and your family well and enjoying the summer months. It is with much honor that we welcome you to Bais Yaakov and we extend wishes of Hatzlacha, Bracha, and Nachas to your daughters as they begin their schooling here. Our institution is a Makom Kadosh and we are striving in this day and age to forge and partner with each one of you to pass on the mesorah of Torah, Yiras Shomayim, and Derech Eretz to each and every student that joins our school. Consequently, we are providing a forum to help families have the necessary tools to deal with the challenges of technology in our changing times.
In your registration confirmation letter, mention was made of the technology awareness seminar that Bais Yaakov requires new parents to attend before the school year begins. Ideally, we would like both parents to attend. However, if only one parent is available to attend, then that will be sufficient. This undertaking is a project designed to raise awareness regarding the importance of technology solutions for our families.
The seminar will be presented by Rabbi Mordechai Frankel and Mr. Zev Steen, courtesy of the local Baltimore office of the Technology Awareness Group, TAG. TAG has 34 offices globally and is guided locally by Rabbi Moshe Heinemann and Rabbi Dovid Heber. This
75-minute seminar focuses on the services that TAG offers the Baltimore community for computers, cellphones, and other devices.
This seminar is strictly educational, describing the components of filtering relevant to various devices that have Internet capability - of which many of us are not even aware. We believe that this educational information is critical to raise healthy children in our current technological environment.
For your convenience, we have scheduled two sessions in August that will both take place in the
Bais Yaakov High School, 6302 Smith Avenue.
Tuesday evening, August 20th at 8:00 p.m.
Sunday morning, August 25th at 10:00 a.m.
We ask that Bais Yaakov Preschool and Elementary School parents in both divisions (Upper and Lower) register for one seminar by contacting the Elementary School Offices at 410-363-3300 ext. 4.
We trust you will find the seminar to be informative and most worthwhile. We look forward to working together with you and your daughter throughout the year.
