Screen Time Panel Discussion at the Jesup (Thu. 8 Feb, 2018 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm)

A recent study showed that the average 8 to 18-year-old spends 7.5 hours a day looking a screen outside of school, that includes phones, televisions and tablets; over a year, that adds up to 114 full days watching a screen for fun. Join in a community conversation about how parents can help their families navigate screen time, at a panel discussion at the Jesup Memorial Library on Thursday, Feb. 8 at 7 p.m.    This panel of resources for parents will include: Edith DuBois, social worker for Mount Desert Island Regional School System; Officer Tim Bland, school resource officer for Mount Desert Island High School, Conners Emerson School and Mount Desert Elementary School; Joshua Young, tech coordinator for Mount Desert Island Regional School System; Ian Braun, dean of students at Mount Desert Island High School and Michael Zboray, Trenton Elementary School principal.
