Screenagers The Next Chapter Trailer

From the director of SCREENAGERS: Growing Up in the Digital Age comes Screenagers The Next Chapter: Uncovering Skills for Stress Resilience and is about helping young people thrive in our screen and stress-filled world.

Filmmaker and physician Delaney Ruston uses a personal lens and professional eye to help parents flip the script on stress, anxiety, and depression. Ruston sets out to uncover how we understand these challenges in our current screen-filled society. And how we as parents and schools empower teens with skills to overcome mental health challenges and build emotional agility, communication savvy, and stress resilience.

Screening will be followed by a panel discussion with local experts in the field of adolescent psychiatry and counseling.

The film is intended for adults and youth starting from age 10 and up.
Thank you for not bringing your younger children to the movie.
Seating is open.

Volunteers Urgently Needed for Picture Day next Wed 9/11

VOLUNTEERS STILL URGENTLY NEEDED: Please sign up here if you’re able to volunteer next Wednesday 9/11.

Oak Hill School’s Picture Day is coming up this Wednesday, September 11th. The school is dependent on parent helpers for the day to go smoothly. Over 600 students plus an additional 100 staff will have their photo taken on this day. The process takes most of the morning, from 7:30 AM to 11 AM.

It would be helpful to have parent helpers at all times, to help the photographers, assist with names at the table, and to help keep the lines under control.

The school photography company gives money to the PTO – last year it was over $2,000 – and makes scholarship packages available to families. So having parent support is critical. Please sign up here if you’re able to volunteer.

FOOD DONATIONS NEEDED! Lunch for Oak Hill Staff on Thursday 8/29

Please consider donating a main dish for this week’s Mexican-themed fiesta lunch for our Oak Hill Middle School Teachers and Staff on Thursday, August 29th, from 11:30 to 1:00 in the school cafeteria.

PLEASE SIGN UP TO CONTRIBUTE FOOD HERE
