NOTE FROM PTO
Unplugging Your Child: Raising Healthy Children in the Information Age - Wednesday, March 24, at 7:00 - 8:30 p.m. at the Marshall Simonds Middle School Auditorium. Join the Burlington PTO for a free, informative talk as Meghan Gardner from Guard Up! speaks about how to get our children and teens "unplugged" long enough to experience the rest of life surrounding them. Meghan will discuss why the internet, social media, online gaming and texting hold such allure for kids. Parents will be provided with important tips and ideas on how to teach children to balance technology with "real life". Most importantly, Meghan will cover the vital ingredients to helping kids step away from the online games.
