National PTA is excited to invite you to a week of live virtual events Feb. 7-11. National PTA’s Safer Internet Day Celebrations, as part of the association’s PTA Connected initiative, gives PTAs and families the opportunity to expand their knowledge around digital well-being and internet safety.

“National PTA has spent the past several years bringing awareness to the impacts of our digital world on the lives of our children,” shared Anna King, National PTA president. “This year’s week-long events, in conjunction with Safer Internet Day, will feature digital learning experiences that help reinforce the importance of using technology responsibly. Our goal is to empower students and families to create a safer, kinder, more inclusive online community, and that starts with relevant education about the challenges families face as they navigate the digital landscape.”

Safer Internet Day is a global event officially convened in the United States by ConnectSafely. National PTA is proud to support the goals of Safer Internet Day by hosting an interactive series to teach caregivers and PTA leaders how to talk about technology in ways that resonate with today’s youth and spreads kindness by building welcoming communities.
