Warsaw Community Schools will present parents with an opportunity to learn more about the effects of raising children during a digital age. The film, titled “Screenagers” is directed by Delaney Rutson, M.D. The movie will be followed by a special panel hosted by WCS staff to further equip parents and discuss important points from the film. The event will take place 6:30 p.m. Monday, Nov. 12, at the Warsaw Performing Arts Center located at 1 Tiger Lane, Warsaw, Indiana.

Are you watching kids scroll through life, with their rapid-fire thumbs and a six-second attention span? Physician and filmmaker Delaney Ruston saw that happening with her own kids and began a quest to uncover how it might impact their development. As with her other two award-winning documentaries on mental health, Ruston takes a deeply personal approach as she 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 insights from authors, psychologists and brain scientists, the film reveals how tech time impacts kids’ development and also offers solutions on how adults can empower their kids to best navigate the digital world to find balance.

Topics discussed in the film include: How do personal digital devices affect school life; how does social media affect our relationships; how does screen use affect children’s development; and how vulnerable are we to video game addiction and depictions of violence.

Screenagers is about the impact of the digital age on children and how to help families minimize harmful effects and find balance. After seeing the film, people tell us that they feel more confident and better equipped to establish balance around screen time. Please note, seventh grade students will watch the film in class at both Edgewood Middle School and Lakeview Middle School.

Kindergarten students have been studying about flowers during our Green Energy: Kinder"garden" unit of study. Every child has investigated the shapes, colors, patterns, and design of flowers as they attract different pollinators to help flowers grow and continue to make more flowers. In addition, all students were blessed with a generous donation of daffodil bulbs from Wihebrink Landscaping Management. We were able to diagram the parts of a bulb and ask lots of questions about flowers that grow from seeds that we plant in the spring and flowers that grow from bulbs that we plant in the fall. Finally, kindergarteners went out into our garden beds and planted daffodil bulbs that we will anticipate their spring arrival by the end of the school year. Just in time for Mother's Day! :)
