Screen Free Week April 23-27, 2018

In an age of iPads, smartphones, texting, social media, video games, Netflix and YouTube, it’s hard to avoid screens. Screen Free Week is a time for Henking and Hoffman students to "unplug" for a week and engage with their friends, family, and community.  It’s also an opportunity for students to exercise their bodies, minds and imaginations!  Stay tuned for more information, including Screen Free Week Bingo Cards for students and information about special deals and businesses participating in Screen Free Week!  More information will be available at: www.henkinghoffmanpta.org.  Or feel free to contact: Amanda Gordon (amandabgordon@yahoo.com), Annie Ashe (aashe31@gmail.com) or Susan Garman (susie36@aol.com)
