Memo Text

The Division of Elementary and Secondary Education Social Media Awareness Campaign (SMACtalk) is excited to announce the launch of CyberBee, a K-2 cyber safety read-aloud initiative. CyberBee was created to bring awareness to a new generation in learning how to navigate the fast-changing digital world. CyberBee’s mission is to fly into libraries and classrooms across the state to read and talk to K-2 students about cyber safety. As students spend more time learning and socializing online, more is needed to keep students healthy and safe. 

The CyberBee K-2 Initiative will kick off on February 1, 2023, and run through April 30, 2023. Sessions are typically 40-50 minutes and intended for common classroom sizes of 20-25 students. To have the CyberBee visit your school, sign-up with the form link below. Once you complete the form, CyberBee will contact you to confirm a date and time.
