Tech Talk blue

Ellington Youth Services and Ellington Middle School are teaming up again this year to provide several nights of information and discussion regarding technology and our families in the middle school library. We will be offering opportunities to learn and engage in conversations about our children's screen time. 

Open to all parents, not just middle school! Refreshments will be served.

Please email Debbie Stauffer at to reserve your spot for these events.

7:15 to 9:15 pm. -Ellington Middle School Library

Taking place at the same time as the middle school dance.

Picture and lgo
Back by popular demand, an in-depth documentary produced by physician and filmmaker Delaney Ruston. She learned that the average kid spends 6.5 hours a day looking at screens and saw it with her own kids. 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. 

We will view the film and break into groups to discuss ways to help our families and community.

Watch the trailer here.
