Screenagers Showing @ GRS


Great River parents, students and community neighbors gathered last week on Tuesday evening to watch the documentary, Screenagers.  There were over 100 attendees to view this award winning documentary, that looks into the realities and challenges of raising children in a digital era and the impacts that the digital era has on our children.  Then, all 6th through 10th grade students watched this documentary in smaller groups on Wednesday, January 31, followed by facilitated dialogues in each of these groups (it was optional for A3 students to view).  Feelings, thoughts and opinions in response to the film varied.   Talk with your student(s) about their impressions.  This is a great opportunity to take a collaborative approach with your child to discuss shared expectations and healthy habits around screens, technology and social media.
