What's Happening Now!

Screenagers and Screenagers, Next Chapter

Do screens play a leading role in your everyday life? Do you ever question the influence social media plays in the development of your child? Or wonder what it truly means to grow up in the Digital Age?


If so, we’ve got 2 movies you won’t want to miss!


Join Friends of Mark Twain as we host TWO documentaries about screens and teens.  For $10, you’ll get links to the award-winning SCREENAGERS: Growing Up the Digital Age as well as SCREENAGERS, NEXT CHAPTER: Uncovering Skills for Stress Resilience. Register now, and you’ll have a whole month to watch them on your own time beginning Friday, March 12, 2021.

*Each registration allows you the opportunity to watch each movie TWICE up through April 13, 2021.

We want to give all interested families in our community the chance to watch these films.  If finances are a concern, please reach out to amy.mccarty@yahoo.com for access to complementary links.


Grab some popcorn, your tweens/teens and the couch to unpack the valuable lessons in these films.  And don’t forget the feel-goods that come with knowing you’ve helped to raise money for Mark Twain Middle School!
