Screenagers Documentary - Two Showings

The PTO groups from each of our schools will be sponsoring two showings of a documentary on the impact that electronic devices are having on teenagers titled SCREENAGERS - Growing up in the digital age.  We are encouraging parents and students to attend.

"Parents need to know that Screenagers is a documentary that will likely strike a chord with many parents.  It explores how teens interact with each other using an electronic device (smartphones, computers, social media, etc.) and looks at whether parents can -- or should -- try to limit or control this behavior.  Many experts share their thoughts on the topics the movie covers, which include tech addiction, violent video games (some clips from the games are shown), digital citizenship, and more.  It's sure to prompt conversations about family communication and responsible tech use if kids and parents watch together."
