The Bath Central School District will host Pause Before You Post, a social media/cyberbullying presentation by Scott Fitch, on Tuesday, September 27 from 5:30-6:00 p.m. in the auditorium.
Following the presentation, a question and answer session will run from 6:00-6:30 p.m. This free event, sponsored by the Haverling Student Council, is open to all parents and community members from Bath and other area school districts.
Fitch will address many issues students face in terms of social media and cyberbullying. His presentation will help parents and community members understand how to help students make good choices when it comes to navigating social media and the roles adults play in recognizing the signs of cyberbullying.
Fitch has spoken to more than 100,000 students and athletes from more than 100 high schools about leadership and social media. He is the Varsity boys basketball coach at Fairport High School, was a standout athlete at SUNY Geneseo and has coached a national basketball team. His presentation also will touch on the importance of how athletes present themselves on social media.
Prior to the evening presentation, Fitch will spend the day in Bath schools giving age-appropriate presentations to students in all grade levels.
