On behalf of the School District of Chilton and Chilton PTA we invite you and your community (Students, Parents, Staff) to a special screening of the film documentary “Screenagers.” We will be hosting this event free of charge on May 22, 2019 at 6:00 pm at the Engler Center for Performing Arts.
In SCREENAGERS the producer takes a deeply personal approach and 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.

Screen-Free Week is an annual invitation to play, explore, and rediscover the joys of life beyond ad-supported screens. From April 28 to May 3, 2019, thousands of families, schools, and communities around the world will put down their entertainment screens for seven days of fun, connection, and discovery. Even though it’s about turning off screens, Screen-Free Week isn’t about going without – it’s about what you can get! An hour once dedicated to YouTube becomes an hour spent outside; ten minutes wiled away on social media turn into ten minutes spent doodling; a movie on a rainy afternoon is replaced by time spent reading, chatting, or playing pretend! We celebrate Screen-Free Week by putting down our entertainment screens and do literally anything else! You might be surprised at what you find.

Forty-fourth graders attended a Reading Sleepover, April 5-6, 2019. They enjoyed fresh air, read, ate pizza, read, played trench, read, played Chinese checkers, read, got ready for bed, listened to a scary bedtime story, “slept”, woke up at 6:30 and read until a breakfast of French toast was served. Twenty-one parents and three teachers along with Mrs. Salzsieder, Library Media Specialist, volunteered serving food, cleaning up, supervising, and most importantly - sleeping overnight. Many books were read and a fantastic, unforgettable, once in a lifetime time was had by all.
