Screen Free Week is Here!

 During Screen Free Week, we encourage all Central students — and their families — to spend the entire week “unplugged”.  To unplug, simply turn off your iPods, smartphones, iPads, computers, video game players, televisions, and every other type of screen you may have (unless you need it for schoolwork, homework, or other non-recreational purposes).

Instead of looking at screens, Central students are encouraged to spend time with friends and family, with their pets, with books, with music, or just doing something on their own, like learning a new skill.

Screen Free Week is Earth Week too, with Earth Day being Sunday, April 22nd.  So why not spend some of your screen-free time showing your love for the Earth by doing something to care for the animals, insects, and plants who depend on a healthy Earth?

Every day a student is screen-free, that student can submit a ticket in the PTO’s raffle.  The more days a student is screen-free, the more chances she or he has to win great prizes, such as Aunt Diana’s gift certificates.  Grab your raffle tickets here:
