Final PTSA Meeting – May 18, 6:30pm

Please plan to attend the final PTSA meeting of the 2015-2016 school year. We have a special evening planned including a FREE Screening of the movie “Screenagers” (see below for details) and a dessert potluck. Please bring a dessert to share (no nuts please). We will provide bottled water, plates, forks and napkins. Show off your baking skills at this celebration of the end of year. A short PTSA meeting will begin at 6:30 where we will review our budget for 2015-2017 and elect our officers (see slate of candidates below).

More about the movie:
Are you watching kids scroll through life, with their rapid-fire thumbs and a six-second attention span? Come join us as we watch Screenagers, a new documentary, focusing on the increasing amount of time young people spend looking at screens, how that affects development, and how it impacts the lives of families as they struggle to limit these effects. Through poignant, and unexpectedly funny stories, along with surprising insights from authors, psychologists and brain scientists, Screenagers reveals how tech time impacts kids’ development. The film offers solutions on how adults can empower their kids to best navigate the digital world and find balance. Learn more and plan to attend.

​We hope to see you there!
