SCREENAGERS to be shown Nov. 5 at BMS More than 10 years ago, the iPhone debuted, and since then, smart phones and tablets have become an inseparable part of our lives, especially for our young people. The question is at what cost? The average young person spends 6.5 hours a day looking at screens. The phenomenon is relatively new and we are just starting to understand some of the negative consequences of so much screen time. Burnet CISD wants to help families begin to have conversations about the impact of screen time on our youth and ways to manage it. SCREENAGERS is a docudrama that explores the impact of digital devices on youth and families. Burnet CISD is hosting a free screening of the 67-minute docudrama at the Burnet Middle School auditorium on Monday, Nov. 5 at 6 p.m. i / / ; '.'/ ll[ t ] ,lg : 7/: 4 1, [,t l l,A Eli Y I ; : f I B.] I I "I "# ?1 [ AI We invite you to join us!] Wednesday M0rnings /~ SUNDAY woRs. pI 8amr12pm ~;: Frida--Mo;n[nsy, ]First 8:30 am Casual] U! ted :iii[ii:i ~1 T 8 am - 12 pm ALLE'GVo= X { I s D, sanctuarY'sc.oo D r.
