Child Exploitation and Social Media - Parent Presentation

Saskatchewan ICE Unit


The following workshop is NOT for children.

Due to the increasing crimes of exploiting children through the use of the Internet, a proposal seeking an Integrated Unit to investigate these crimes was brought forward to these respective Policing agents and the Provincial Government. The Sask ICE Unit became operational in the spring of 2009.

The Unit’s mandate is to reduce Internet-facilitated child sexual exploitation by identifying
victimized children and investigating and assisting in the prosecution of sexual offenders.

Child exploitation through social media is much more common than you might think
and this workshop will be extremely useful for parents of children of all ages in Regina.
Please consider attending.

Outdoor Learning Space at Ethel Milliken!

The EMSCC (Ethel Milliken School Community Council) is working on a project to install an outdoor learning space at the school.  It will require a tremendous amount of fundraising and community involvement!   We are asking for your assistance:


1.      Flyers will be coming home today with the youngest family member at school.  On the flyer there is a detachable portion to be returned along with payment back to the child’s teacher.  Because this is a capital project, this is considered to be a charitable donation so we can then issue a tax receipt! (see details on the form)

Cheques must be made payable to EMSCC. 

2.      We hope to collect enough funds in this first campaign to start the STAGE 1 project which includes picnic table seating for 30 students.  The estimate cost is $15,000.  Once that project is complete, we will begin a second campaign to fundraise for a shaded cover for the outdoor learning space.   Please see the flyers or the school website for more details!


3.      If you have any great ideas on how to ramp up the fundraising efforts, we are interested to hear from you.  We welcome feedback and ideas!  If you wish to get involved and help with this project - just let  us know!  You can email Terri Navid at terri.navid@sasktel.net or txt her at 306-535-1815 or talk to the principal Mr. Miezianko.


Thank you for helping to make your child's school at better place to learn and grow!
