Image result for screenagers the next chapterAs a 5th grade team, we feel this would be a great opportunity for parents to check this out as it is in line with a lot of things we’ve been noticing and observing in students as technology continues to play an important role in students’ lives. Check out the trailer for the film, Screenagers: The Next Chapter,  or the original film, Screenagers, to help inform you and your family as you navigate the increasing social demands and pressures of today’s students with technology.
