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  dstauffer@ellington-ct.gov to reserve your spot for these events.
