On Wednesday, May 17th, student in grades 7th – 12th at Mora Schools and students in grades 6th – 12th in Ogilvie Schools had the opportunity to view the film, “Screenagers. Growing up in a Digital Age”. Community residents also had the opportunity to view the film at the Paradise Theater in the evening. In all, over 1000 students and community members were able to view this film!
SACK would like to thank both Mora and Ogilvie School Districts for showing this movie to students and as many staff members as possible. This film hits home with each individual that had a chance to view it. It does not point fingers or imply guilt. It does a great job of reminds us all that while we live in a digital age often times we need to step back and make sure we are making the best choices for ourselves, our families and those we care for.
If you did not have the opportunity to view this film there are resources available on their website that you may be interested in. The filmmaker has fairly strict guidelines for how the film is shown so it will not be available in our community unless another organization is able to fund it. However, they list other community organizations that have showings on their website. Please visit: www.screenagersmovie.com for more information.
Prevention works best when we all work together!
