Technology and the Internet can provide a wealth of information and tools for enhancing our students educational experience in a positive way. GRACE Christian School’s vision for the E4 initiative is “Embracing technology in a collaborative learning community, GRACE will engage and empower students to excel in the digital age”. A key part of this initiative is to help our students and parents to use the internet safely and to be good digital citizens. It is critical that parents monitor their child’s use of the internet and digital tools and to set expectations for their child. Students also need to understand their parent’s expectations.
