The AOD shared the following resources and opportunities for Mercy families.
Extended Access to Protect Young Eyes: Curriculum & Parent App
As indicated in August, based on the need for online safety and digital citizenship, the AOD purchased the Protect Young Eyes Curriculum and Parent App for all schools in the AOD (including the order schools). Due to the confusion with the Virtus platform, however, Chris McKenna has generously offered to extend the access to both the curriculum and the parent app throughout next year, 2023-2024. Click here for the PYE curriculum; the link can also be found under the Educator’s Tab in Virtus.
Catholic Youth Summer Camp
Check out the Catholic Youth Summer Camp Great Lakes, located in Brighton, MI for middle school and high school students. See more information for the Catholic Youth Summer Camp Great Lakes - CYSC - Catholic Youth Summer Camp here.
Compass for Parents
The Family Ministry Team at the AOD recently launched a new resource for parents - the Compass website. www.compassforparents.org. Compass is an online catalog with resources for parents to accompany them through the joys and trials of family life. An article about the project can be found here. The catalog already has 150 entries, but it will continue to grow over the next 18 months to include original videos, articles, and content for parents of children at every age from birth through young adulthood.
