The Eagle Crest PTO invite you to participate in a book study on Screenwise by Devorah Heitner.
It will take place on March 5th from 5:30-6:30 (childcare provided).
We have a number of books available to borrow. If you would like to be on the list for a loan, please either return the sheet sent home in today's Thursday folder or email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and your child's name and teacher. We will send the books home via Thursday folders as they become available.
Supporting and mentoring kids in the digital age is a community effort. St. Vrain Valley Schools is pleased to partner with Dr. Devorah Heitner in hosting a family engagement night this spring for parents.
An expert on young people’s relationship with digital media and technology, Dr. Devorah Heitner is the author of Screenwise: Helping Kids Thrive (and Survive) in Their Digital World and founder of Raising Digital Natives. Her mission is to cultivate a culture of empathy and social/emotional literacy. Dr. Heitner’s work has appeared in the New York Times, the Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, TIME magazine and Education Week. She has a Ph.D. in Media/Technology & Society from Northwestern University and has taught at DePaul and Northwestern. She is delighted to be raising her own digital native.
Join us Tuesday March 12th at 6:00 pm at Trail Ridge Middle School as we engage in meaningful conversations, learn from one another, and better understand both the challenges and opportunities facing our students, parents, and educators around technology use.
If you are interested in attending, please RSVP through this form. The first 50 families who respond will receive a copy of Dr. Heitner’s book, Screenwise: Helping Kids Thrive (and Survive) in Their Digital World.
Or, if you would like to borrow a copy, the PTO has purchased several to loan out to parents prior to the book study. Please email PTOEagleCrest@gmail.com to get on the list.
