Screenagers the Next Chapter


Don't miss your chance to take part in the Virtual Viewing of Screenagers the Next Chapter. This film is a MUST SEE for ALL Parents! The film will be shown with Spanish Subtitles.

Filmmaker and physician Dr. Delaney Ruston takes the conversation around screens and teens to the next level with Screenagers NEXT CHAPTER: Uncovering Skills for Stress Resilience—a film that examines the science behind teen’s emotional challenges, the interplay of social media, and most importantly, what can be done in our schools and homes to help them build crucial skills to navigate stress, anxiety, and depression in our digital age. (TRAILER)

Following the Real Time Viewing on April 19th at 6 pm, we will have a Panel Discussion! Following panel discussion, families have the option to watch during a 2-week window. (A second panel will be held for Spanish speaking parents at a to be determined date). Please reserve you tickets now for this FREE EVENT! A limited number of tickets are available.

The Film will be shown to students April 26-April 27 during “Tools for Success” If you would prefer that your student not watch the film, complete this Opt Out Form.

Time to make sure your student has completed all of their assignments. Have your student show you how they can use "Student Portal" in classlinks to check their grades. When checking your student's grades, if the grade is marked as GFE (Good Faith Effort), you may want to encourage your student to go to Office Hours and talk to their teacher about "Re-Do" opportunities.
