Hello Edgemont Families,

Parents and teenagers of EJH and Region 3 schools are invited to join us for a complimentary community viewing of the movie, “Screenagers”, on Wednesday, April 5.  This will be a wonderful opportunity for us to come together as a community and learn about something that I know many of us are concerned about—our kids’ screen time.  We will begin with a light dinner in the commons at 5:30 PM and the movie will begin at 6:00 PM in the Auditorium. 

To learn more, check out the Screenagers website at http://www.screenagersmovie.com/

About the Film

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.

I hope you’ll consider joining us on the 5th.

Have a great week!

Mr. Molver
