Get your dancing shoes on!
Buckman SUN is sponsoring a Family Dance with live music and dancing by the Flat Rock String Band http://www.flatrockstringband.com/.
This is in celebration of Healthy Heart Month, so come and get down with friends and family.
Pizza will be available for purchase to make it easy for families to come straight from work.
The theme for this year’s family write night is “Telling your Family Stories”. Make a family coat of arms, a family history game, a memory box, a family time capsule or other fun things! $2 slice pizza will be available to make it easy to come straight from work. Encourage your child to interview their parents or grandparents or aunts or uncles. SUN can provide family oral history questions if you request them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your child can write up a family story and turn it in and it may be selected to be read on-stage. Prizes will be awarded for K-2 and 3-5 categories. There will also be a number of writing prompts that evening if your child with your support would prefer to come up with a spontaneous contribution. Family Story Night will be April 14 from 6:30-8 pm.
Buckman will host a screening of the movie “Screenagers: Growing up in the digital age.”
From the film’s website:
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.
