Screen Free Week

April 29th – May 5th 2019

Screen-Free Week is about having more mind-engaging fun by turning the screens off and turning on your life!  This annual event is held to remind us of how creative and resourceful the Belle Aire students can be without television and screen media.

Here is how it works

If the student has not watched TV/other screen-time for the entire day, the student and parent sign the form. Make sure your name and teacher code are on each day you participated.  Each Screen-free-day-slip will be entered into a raffle.  Do not cut or separate the form! If you’ve only participated in a few days, that’s ok…sign the days you participated, leave the others blank, and turn in the whole sheet.

Turn in your signed participation forms by Tuesday, May 7th

Screen-Free Week is a nation-wide effort that focuses attention not on the quality of TV programming, but on the excessive quantity of television that most Americans watch.  It asks that people reassess the roles TV/internet play in our daily lives as entertainer, baby sitter, time filler, background noise, and sales force. Unplug from digital entertainment and spend your free time playing, reading, daydreaming, creating, exploring, and connecting with family and friends. (Note: this year we are holding screen free week later than the national week to allow for scheduling of the events below.)
