Message from Principal Loveland

Dear Parents/Guardians,


On March 28, Wamogo United groups will focus on the growing dependency on technology among our students. They will a watch documentary called Screenagers, which is approximately 68 minutes. The film is about the impact of the digital age on our students and how to help them minimize the harmful effects and find balance. Students will then debrief in their Wamogo United discussion groups to reflect on their thoughts about this important topic.


Below are two links that you may find helpful. The first is a link to a preview of the film so you can have a clearer picture about Screenagers. The second link is to a parent guide that will assist you if you would also like to debrief with your student on the film.

I hope you find this information helpful and that this initiative helps our students to better navigate the digital age in which we live.


Thanks and have a wonderful weekend!


Sincerely,


Sabin Loveland
