SOCIAL MEDIA IS POWERFUL
SOCIAL MEDIA IS A TOOL
And as all tools, damage can result from misuse. We encourage all CCHS affiliates to take the time to post and comment thoughtfully on all social media. For more information on how to post on social media or to load social media apps on your computer or phone, contact our communications department, email@example.com.
SCHOOL #HASHTAGS AND MENTIONS
Catholic Central High School is very accessible on social media, including Facebook, Twitter, on our official BLOG and Instagram. We encourage all students, faculty and parents to stay in touch by “following” us or “friending” CCHS outlets. These are important ways our CC Community can stay in touch in these busy times. And, as we continue to expand our digital presence, these outlets will be an opportunity to be even closer to those who don’t necessarily live near Burlington. So please, “Share Away”!
Hashtags simply mean that when you post in a social media platform like Facebook, you put the “#” symbol before the word you want to emphasize. For instance, “Congratulations to Catholic Central’s Player of the Year, not only a great athlete but an even better student #wellrounded #topperpride”
Catholic Central High School Social Media Club
If you love social media, taking pictures and in general, being “social”, the newly-formed CCHS Social Media Club is for you. The Club will work closely with our Marketing and Business Departments, giving all members great insight as to how awesome social media can be. You’ll have a chance to learn high-end media equipment and how to edit content for specific audiences. We are also considering summer internships!
For more information on getting involved in our Social Media Club, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
