OLA School will host a family dinner and movie night featuring the movie SCREENAGERS on Thursday, March 22, from 6:00–8:00 pm.
In SCREENAGERS, Dr. Delaney Ruston “takes a deeply personal approach as she probes into the vulnerable corners of family life, including her own, to explore struggles over social media, video games, academics and internet addiction. Through poignant, and unexpectedly funny stories, along with surprising insights from authors, psychologists, and brain scientists, SCREENAGERS reveals how tech time impacts kids’ development and offers solutions on how adults can empower kids to best navigate the digital world and find balance.” – Screenager Website
This movie is only offered in private screenings, and we are excited to be able to host this special viewing for our families and neighbors.
Tickets are $6 each for OLA Church and School adults and free for OLA school students, PSR students, parish youth, and school and PSR teachers. Tickets are limited and must be purchased here in advance. We are also offering an optional dinner at 6:00 pm. The dinner will consist of a Chick-fil-A chicken sandwich, chips, and water for an additional $5 per person. After you have purchased your ticket, you can sign-up here to purchase a CFA dinner. Dinners must be ordered in advance and paid for with cash at the door. Dinner will be available from 6:00-6:30 pm in the cafeteria, and the movie will begin promptly at 6:30 pm in the gym.
Please note that the material in this movie is best for children ten and over, and all students attending must be accompanied by an adult. There will not be child care.
While the greatest benefit will come to those who watch the movie alongside their older children, this movie is pertinent for all parents today.
