The Real (and Often) Emotional Risks and Consequences of Being Online:
A presentation by Jon Mattleman, Director of Needham Youth Services
Monday, May 23, 2016, 7:00pm
‚Äč ¬† ¬†
Parents worry about their pre-teens and teens spending so much time online, but often underestimate the emotional risks that can impact their children in the short and long term. 

This conversation will look at the technologies youth are using, how and why they are making mistakes online, why they feel so compelled to be connected 24/7, and how critical it is for parents to be thoughtful about their parenting with regard to technology.

PowerSchool‚Äôs ‚ÄúSingle Sign-On‚Ä̬† for the Parent Portal
The Needham Public Schools is pleased to announce the implementation of¬† PowerSchool‚Äôs ‚ÄúSingle Sign-On ‚Ä̬† for the Parent Portal.¬†
Parent Single Sign-On offers a number of benefits, including:
 -the ability for a parent/guardian to access multiple students with one single username and password,
 -a personalized account for each parent or guardian, and 
 -the ability for parents/guardians to retrieve their own login information. 
Parent Single Sign-on will begin at 9 am, Monday, June 6, 2016.  At that point your current parent account will no longer work.  On June 6th or later, you will need to create your new PowerSchool account and link your child(ren) to it.   You will receive a letter from the Needham Public Schools with simple step-by-step instructions for setting up your new account.
