Parenting the Digital Generation

Hartford Area Schools are presenting "Mike McGowan-Parenting the Digital Generation".

This free presentation will be held on Wednesday, March 11th-6.30 pm at Erin School in the library.

Children of the 21st century are growing up in a digital age where they're introduced to new forms of technology on a regular basis. Although these new tools can bring many benefits to the world's youngest generation, they can also alter the way children learn to relate and connect with people, especially when forced to interact with others face-to-face and not through a screen.

Mike McGowan will talk about how technology has shaped the way students handle peer mediation and how adults can stay connected with the kids in their lives without the use of technology.

Fun Fair-Silent Auction 2020

Join us Saturday April 4th!

Believe it or not the annual Fun Fair is coming up fast!!!!

For those of you who have not experienced it before, the Fun Fair is the biggest PTC annual fundraiser of the year. It takes place here on April 4th and is a huge to-do. It is a carnival type event with games, prizes, food, bingo, and a large silent auction. I have been in charge of the silent auction part of the fair for many years. Lots of time and energy is put into it. Each grade has a theme and we ask families to donate items that go with that theme if they are able. These items are used to help fill the baskets that are auctioned off on that day (see grade flyers below). I also get many donations from outside businesses; who very generously donate a variety of items.

There are also many families who might like to donate within our school who own their own businesses or have some type of home based business. (For example, Tupperware, doTerra, Color Street, Young Living, Thirty-One, LuLaRoe, etc.) There are also some who might like to donate a specific item(s) from your family. If any of this applies to you and you would like to make some sort of donation to this year’s silent auction, please let me know. Please do not feel obligated or feel as though you have to donate. This is just to let you know who to contact if you are interested in doing so.

Thank you very much.
