MVHS Key Club members have been juggling multiple service projects this month, including the sale of yuda bands during their lunch periods.

 

Handmade by children in Zimbabwe and Guatemala, yuda bands are sold as a service project in U.S. schools to build scholarship funds for youth in developing nations who cannot afford a basic high school education. All proceeds go to a student in need. Involved school groups get to choose whom they will help, and they can even meet that student via Skype.

HELP FOR “SCREENAGERS” AND THEIR FAMILIES: FILM VIEWING MARCH 19

Posted February 19 at 8:01am

We are watching our kids grow up in front of a screen, scrolling through life with ever faster thumbs. As parents, we find ourselves doing the same, and we begin to ask if the rewards outweigh what is being lost.

 

Like it or not, we are living in a new technological land. Our children’s attention spans are ever-shorter, contact with the natural world briefer, and social interactions one level removed from face-to-face. How do we begin to talk about this as families?

 

If you are experiencing friction and frustration about your child’s use of technology, you are not alone, and there is help.
