Final PTSA Meeting Special Event!
Join Us for an End of Year Dessert Potluck
and view a FREE screening of “Screenagers”
SCREENING IS OPEN TO THE COMMUNITY!
Bring a dessert of your choice to share with others (no nuts please). No time to bake? –bring
a purchased item instead. The PTSA will provide water, coffee, utensils, plates and napkins. We have invited our incoming 6th grade class families, so let’s welcome them with lots of goodies.
Are you watching kids scroll through life, with their rapid-fire thumbs and a six-second attention span? Physician and filmmaker Delaney Ruston saw that with her own kids and learned that the average kid spends 6.5 hours a day looking at screens. She wondered about the impact of all this time and about the friction occurring in homes and schools around negotiating screen time—friction she knew all too well.
In SCREENAGERS, as with her award-winning documentaries on mental health, Delaney takes a deeply personal approach as she probes into the vulnerable corners of family life, including her own, to explore struggles over social media, video games, academics and internet addiction. Through poignant, and unexpectedly funny stories, along with surprising insights from authors, psychologists, and brain scientists, SCREENAGERS reveals how tech time impacts kids’ development and offers solutions on how adults can empower kids to best navigate the digital world and find balance.
