On Monday January 31st, all 7th and 8th grade students at Amity Middle School Bethany participated in an internet safety presentation given by Scott Driscoll of Internet Safety Concepts. The presentations provided students with information on how to safely use technology and how to best avoid the potential dangers of the internet. Social media safety as well as cyberbullying were also addressed. This presentation was sponsored by Woodbridge Youth Services.
It’s snow season! Residents may call to hire teens to shovel or do odd jobs. Please plan for snow shoveling as the number of teens is limited. Teens who want paid work should contact Youth Services to schedule an interview. The Job Bank is a referral service for residents who offer odd jobs to resident teens ages 13 – 18.
Valentine Wishes for Seniors
Bring some smiles to the faces of our senior residents by making a few valentines to show you care. Get creative and send a message of love and hope. Youth Services will distribute them to local seniors who may be lonely due to the pandemic and may lack the technology to stay in touch with family and friends. Please leave your cards in the Valentine collection box. Collection boxes can be found at Youth Services (4 Meetinghouse Lane), Amity Middle School Bethany, Amity High School, Beecher Road School or outside the Woodbridge Center gym. Please submit your cards by Monday 2/14.
