Screen Free Week
During the week of May 5 - 12, WSB joins other child centered institutions to participate in Screen-Free Week.
This is a nationwide event sponsored by Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood and celebrated by schools, families, and other civic and community groups each year. During Screen-Free Week, millions of children and adults pledge to spend seven days not seeking recreation from watching TV, playing video games, or other screen based forms of entertainment. Instead, individuals do other activities such as reading, being physically active, and spending time with friends and family.
Studies show that children who watch less TV are more likely to read well and to be physically fit. Turning off screens also allows for more family time. Screen-Free Weeks is a great way to jump-start our kids into more reading, learning, and active play. It's also a lot of fun!
Many parents choose to join their children in forgoing screen-based entertainment all week long and engaging in other fun activities. This kind of support is the best thing you can do to ensure that your child will have a successful and beneficial experience.
