Parents of intermediate school students in Westfield can be more aware this summer of social media trends of tweens thanks to information provided by the Counseling Departments of Roosevelt and Edison Intermediate Schools.

Prior to the end of the school year, counselors at Roosevelt held a “Coffee with Counselors” information session attended by more than 60 parents. Student Support Counselor Christine Trottere can be seen here responding to questions on the topic of Navigating Social Media in Middle School. Information on this topic and more can be found on the RIS Counseling website which includes information from “Coffee with Counselors” sessions as well as the Counseling Quarterly Newsletters.

Edison Intermediate School has been providing tips to parents on the EIS Counseling website throughout the year, including a section on social media entitled “What’s Trending.”
