Way to go Scorpions!
On Friday, January 23, 2015, the FBI presented Sykesville Middle School with the above certificate for its outstanding achievement in the FBI’s Safe Online Surfing (SOS) program. Sykesville received the top score for November 2014 compared to other schools in the nation.
Sykesville Middle School counselors Sherry Brown, Kellie Graham, and McDaniel College intern, Kate Castle, taught a cyber-safety lesson to 7th grade students featuring the program from the FBI website. The Safe Online Surfing (SOS) program is designed to help schools teach cyber safety. The free program, developed with help from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, is grade-specific and offers six “islands” with different games geared towards various aspects of cyber security.
Topics are age-appropriate, meet state and federal internet safety mandates, and include topics such as cyberbullying, netiquette, social media and gaming. Students also view short videos developed around cyber security themes and discuss what they have learned and how they can apply these lessons to their experiences online. There is an exam for each grade level and top-scoring schools are recognized by the FBI through inclusion on the site’s leaderboard.
Thank You Veterans!
