This past weekend, the Loyola Parents' Association hosted its annual dance. Thank you to all those parents who attended as well as those who donated items for our raffle and auction. We hope you had a great time on Saturday night! Be sure to join the LPA Facebook group for a post-event recap - with photos! - later this week.
Parent Speaker Series
We hope you can join us for the next Ignatian Formation Speaker Series on Wednesday, November 28th, from 7-9pm. We will be inviting parents from Sacred Heart as well and hope to address some of the challenges that parents face when dealing with their children and technology. Please RSVP here.
Below is a synopsis of the film Screenagers that will be shown as part of the presentation:
"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 with her own kids and learned that the average kid spends 6.5 hours a day looking at screens. She wondered about the impact of all this time and about the friction occurring in homes and schools around negotiating screen time—friction she knew all too well.
In SCREENAGERS, as with her award-winning documentaries on mental health, Delaney 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 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."
