PAC Meeting Cancelled Due to Event at Lord Byng

We were made aware yesterday of an event that is being held at Lord Byng School at the same time as our scheduled PAC meeting. We feel that parents and children may want to attend this film so we have cancelled the PAC meeting to allow everyone an opportunity to go to this event if they want to. The details are below:

Here is what parents are saying:

age 10+           This is one to see twice - once with other parents, once with your kids.  As a pediatrician and father of three (one teen, two tweens) the issue of  time is never far from                                   the surface. This documentary is very well done and engaging on the topic of screen time, device use and digital distractions.

age 8+         So helpful!  I have been to a lot of talks/seminars on screen use and kids - and this film was the most useful and engaging. 

age 9+        This fascinating documentary offers a compelling voyage through the emotional and scientific issues surrounding kids and screen                             time.

age 10+       Must See Film for Parents and Children. This is one of the most valuable films - to be watched by parents and children
