2016 marks our second year of celebrating Screen-Free Week, a national initiative to "unplug". In the leading weeks, we offered several presentations regarding children and technology to both the parents and students. We also held events every day of screen-free week . We started Monday with a spring cleaning of our school grounds opposite sessions with our naturalist Jim McGrath from Nature Discovery. Tuesday we did a Wildflower Walk at Harris Nature Center. On Wednesday the children spent some time learning and playing "screen-free" games in the classrooms like dominos, chess, jacks, Set, Swish, Uno and many more. Thursday was our spring concert followed by an ice-cream social and we finished off the week by taking in a Lansing Lugnuts baseball game. The entire week was a lot of fun! We all had the opportunity to spend a little less time using electronic entertainment media and a little more time enjoying the company of family and friends!
