All of our technology including our phone system is supported by that unit.

Screenagers: Growing Up in the Digital Age, a documentary directed by Delaney Ruston, examines how constant technological immersion, or "screen time," affects both the psychological and emotional development of teens. Ruston, a physician by trade, was compelled to make the film after constant pressure from her 13-year-old daughter for an iPhone. She interviewed psychologists, educators, and experts around the country, and gleaned insight into how rampant smartphone use can affect the brain chemistry of teens. Join us as we bring together kids, parents and educators to view "Screenagers "followed by a moderated conversation which can lead to change in our homes, schools and communities.

A group of parents meets every Tuesday morning at 8:00AM to pray the rosary together in the school chapel . Please feel free to join them this week.
