April 9th – Mauston PD & The Eagle After School Program Present: Is Your Child Sexting? What Parents Need to Know

Tuesday, April 9,  5–7pm,  Mauston High School Auditorium

In today’s world, social media platforms and online mobile apps are more accessible and popular than ever. Which unfortunately means…it has never been easier for unsupervised juveniles to engage in dangerous and often, illegal online communication activity (particularly from the privacy and safety of their own home).

Specifically, this community outreach presentation will address the following questions:

  • Which popular apps are used by teens to engage in inappropriate and risky behavior i.e. sexting, sharing explicit photos, and private communications with unknown individuals?
  • What do these apps look like and what are their capabilities?
  • How do online predators infiltrate these popular apps to target and exploit children/teens?

Additionally, a live demonstration will be conducted to show parents how quick and easy it is for a juvenile to be targeted by aggressive online predators on these apps.

Individuals who attend this session will be provided the necessary information and resources to help create and maintain a safe online environment for their kids.

This topic is being presented by Special Agent Jed Roffers Wisconsin Department of Justice (WI DOJ) – Division of Criminal Investigation (DCI). Special Agent Roffers is currently a member of the Wisconsin Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force, which primarily focuses on the investigation of sexual crimes committed against children, which are primarily facilitated through the use of computers and/or the Internet.

 

April 13th – Mad City Badgers Wheel Chair Basketball Demo at Hillsboro High School

The Mad City Badgers, a wheelchair basketball team that Dodge is a part of, are coming back to Hillsboro!!. They will be demonstrating how they play while in a wheelchair, if they fall, warm ups, and they will explain how the sport is ran with rules. What this is is showing the communities, that even though these kids have some sort of disability, they are still very much active and driven to play just like another kid.
We will also be holding a fundraiser to help the team out financially. Unlike our highschool and club teams, they do not get the privilege to have a gym at their disposal anytime. In order to get practices in they have to find a gym and pay a rental fee. There is also the cost of tournaments, equipment(basketballs and chairs that can range from $3,000-$4,000), uniforms, and membership with the NWBA(National Wheelchair Basketball Association). All these add up for the team.
The fundraisers will consist of silent auction, raffle baskets, 50/50, and a bake sale. If anyone would like to donate something towards the fundraiser, please let me know (we are also looking for gluten free baked goods also)
You can email me @ brandijean98@hotmail.com
Call (608)6040964
Or just message me with any questions

**Free admission
**Concession stand will be available
