Parenting Young Children in the Digital Age: Technology Usage in a Post-Covid World

Parenting Young Children in the Digital Age: Technology Usage in a Post-Covid World

**Please join us for a joint Royle-Tokeneke PTO program for all current 4th and 5th grade students and parents**

How can we help our children develop appropriate habits when using technology? Can we unwind the uptick in screen time resulting from the pandemic? Can my child navigate middle school without a smartphone? The Tokeneke/Royle PTOs are hosting a panel discussion to address these questions and more and is inviting elementary school parents and children in fifth grade from across the district to attend on Thursday, June 2 at 7:00pm in the Tokeneke Common Room. Dr. Joan McGettigan, DPS Director of Instructional Technology, will discuss technology best practices and potential concerns, as well as parental controls on devices. In addition, OK-2-Delay’s Marty Hendrickson and Jacqueline Telgheder will present the parent perspective on smartphones and social media, along with 7th and 8th grade students who will speak about their experience in middle school with respect to smartphones. This is open to 4th and 5th grade parents AND children from Royle and Tokeneke. Please RSVP here if you would like to attend. Any questions can be directed to our Royle PTO co-chairs Lindsay Kollar and Monica Silverman!

Last Day of School

A reminder that our last day of school will be Monday 6/20 (early dismissal at 12:55pm). We know many families already have camp and vacation plans set. If you know your child will not be in on Monday 6/20, please let Jessica Presser (jpresser@darienps.org) know to assist in our planning for that day. Given that we anticipate many children will not be able to attend on 6/20, all “end of year” classroom events will take place the prior week.
