The producers of Screenagers provide the following Parent Guide for setting rules and discussing screen time with kids.
“Having weekly, short, calm conversations with your family about tech is so important. Tech Talk Tuesday (TTT), our weekly blog, offers you tools and tips for discussions. Families tell us it’s making a huge difference. Visit our website: www.screenagersmovie.com/tech-talk-tuesdays/ to try one. It’s never too late to start a conversation about technology but often doing it in baby steps is more effective.” ~ Delaney Ruston, MD, filmmaker of Screenagers
4 Basic Rules to Consider
No screens in bedrooms when kids and teens go to sleep (for younger kids keep screens out completely). Fact: 75% of teens get inadequate sleep. The presence of devices disrupts sleep cycles.
Set time goals for studying without multitasking and then, also, take tech breaks. Fact: Multitasking is linked to less retention and poorer academic outcomes.
Eat family meals without devices. Fact: Face-to-face conversations improve mood and empathy.
Put phones and devices away in the car. Fact: More than half of kids report seeing their parents text while driving.
The Orchestra Sign Up Night will start with a brief informational meeting and a questions and answer session. Please bring your child with you to the meeting!
The Hudson Orchestra program is a great way for students to participate in a music ensemble!
What instruments can my child play?
Student can play violin, viola, cello, or bass. Elementary orchestra teachers will be visiting your child’s classroom to demonstrate the differences between these awesome string instruments!
When are lessons?
Lessons will begin in September of next school year. Students will need to bring their instrument to school one day per week. They have large group lesson before school at 8:00 AM and a small group during the school day.
How much does it cost?
The rental costs vary by instrument. We work with area music store representatives who will be at the meeting to explain how the rental program works. The initial rental cost for the four-month trial period is $45 for violin and viola, $65 for cello, and $95 for bass.
Following the Orchestra Sign Up Night, we will help you pick the right size instrument for your child and you will have the opportunity to set up an instrument rental.
