Warsaw Community Schools will present parents with an opportunity to learn more about the effects of raising children during a digital age. The film, titled “Screenagers” is directed by Delaney Rutson, M.D. The movie will be followed by a special panel hosted by WCS staff to further equip parents and discuss important points from the film. The event will take place 6:30 p.m. Monday, Nov. 12, at the Warsaw Performing Arts Center located at 1 Tiger Lane, Warsaw, Indiana.

Are you watching kids scroll through life, with their rapid-fire thumbs and a six-second attention span? Physician and filmmaker Delaney Ruston saw that happening with her own kids and began a quest to uncover how it might impact their development. As with her other two award-winning documentaries on mental health, Ruston takes a deeply personal approach as she probes into the vulnerable corners of family life, including her own, to explore struggles over social media, video games, academics and internet addiction.

Through poignant, and unexpectedly funny stories, along with insights from authors, psychologists and brain scientists, the film reveals how tech time impacts kids’ development and also offers solutions on how adults can empower their kids to best navigate the digital world to find balance.

Topics discussed in the film include: How do personal digital devices affect school life; how does social media affect our relationships; how does screen use affect children’s development; and how vulnerable are we to video game addiction and depictions of violence.

Screenagers is about the impact of the digital age on children and how to help families minimize harmful effects and find balance. After seeing the film, people tell us that they feel more confident and better equipped to establish balance around screen time. Please note, seventh grade students will watch the film in class at both Edgewood Middle School and Lakeview Middle School.

Warsaw Community Schools' middle school band students recently concluded their summer band program. Both beginner and advanced students took part in practices, a band cookout, trip and concerts.

According to Band Director Joseph Peloza, students in the beginning band began their endeavors with their instruments through practicing out of their books. Peloza noted students made immense progress during their training.

“As a group of beginners just starting, I was impressed by the tone quality they displayed, enthusiasm, and their focus,” stated Peloza. “I heard many positive comments from parents after our concert. They enjoyed our dramatic opening to the concert as well as the students’ ability to follow my direction quickly. They could not believe that the students had only been playing for a few weeks.”

The advanced band students performed a concert that included a variety of musical styles. Their selections included Star-Spangled Banner, America, the Beautiful, This Is My Country, and music from the musical Cabaret. “They (the students) did an amazing job preparing for this concert. I am fortunate to work with a great group of students,” noted Peloza.

In addition to their practices, 66 middle school band students embarked on Saturday, June 23, to Deep River Waterpark, Merrillville.

“Our practices, band cookout, trip and concerts were enjoyed by everybody,” stated Peloza. “I had a great time working with the students this year and look forward to a great school year starting in August!”

Warsaw Community Schools

eLearning Day Information for Secondary Parents


The next eLearning Day for 2017‐2018 for Warsaw Community Schools will take place on
Saturday, May 19, 2018. This day has been scheduled to make up a school
day that has been missed due to dangerous weather conditions. Making up lost
instructional time in this manner allows students to be dismissed for the summer in late May as opposed to June.

eLearning Day Procedures


All student assignments for the eLearning Day will be posted by 9:00 a.m. on the district and school web site. The district website may be accessed by visiting
http://www.warsaw.k12.in.us and the school web site may be accessed by visiting
http://yourschool name.warsaw.k12.in.us (ie: http://wchs.warsaw.k12.in.us). All lessons will
be organized by school and teacher. Each teacher’s page will provide specific instructions for
the assignments to be completed or links to commonly used learning tools such as Canvas.
The assignments may be completed on the actual eLearning Day or may be completed and
turned in any time prior to the start of school on the following Thursday, May 24, 2018.
Completion of the assignments will allow the student to be counted as in attendance on the
eLearning Day. Any student who fails to turn in the assignments by the deadline will be counted absent for the eLearning Day.

On the eLearning Day, teachers may be contacted by email or other established means of
communication with any questions about assignments. Additionally, a technology support line
will be available for any general technology questions by calling 574‐371‐5088 from

9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
Also, for individuals that do not have Internet connectivity at home, students may use the
wireless network that extends out into the parking lot around all of our school buildings or use
the free wireless Internet service and/or computers at the Warsaw Community Public Library.
Finally, one computer lab in each middle school and the WCHS Media Center will be open for
one hour each day after school on Monday, May 21, Tuesday, May 22, and Wednesday, May 23.
