The Fireside Elementary PTO is proud to partner with PVUSD and our school administration, teachers and staff to pilot a Digital Citizenship program here at Fireside for our 3rd-6th graders. This program uses Common Sense Media’s Digital Citizenship Curriculum which can be reviewed at


The digital world is expanding at lightning speed and bringing with it amazing opportunities and complex challenges for everyone. When we teach digital citizenship to students, we help create a school culture that supports safe, positive, appropriate, responsible and kind digital citizens and technology users. With great opportunity brings a greater responsibility to teach our students about digital citizenship.


The following are the main goals for our Fireside Elementary Digital Citizenship Program: 

  • Responsibility to oneself – staying safe, healthy, protecting our reputations

  • Responsibility to friends and family – protecting online privacy of others

  • Responsibility to larger community – communicating in a kind, respectful manner while positively contributing to appropriate online conversations

We have Digital Citizenship Certified Parent Volunteers that will be teaching six lessons a year to our 3rd-6th grade students. This program uses the award winning Common Sense Media’s Digital Citizenship Curriculum that prepares students with critical 21st-century skills.



We believe this program brings students, families, and educators together to create world-class digital citizens for the 21st century. Raising and educating young people in today’s 24/7 digital media environment is one of the most exciting and overwhelming challenges that parents and schools face today. Working together with Common Sense Education, we can raise a generation of students who become smart, responsible, and respectful digital citizens. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
