Fawkes by Nadine Brandes

Thomas Fawkes is slowly turning to stone thanks to the Stone Plague. The Keepers, including Thomas's father, think the Igniters caused the plague. The Igniters, including the King of England, think the Keepers are to blame. All Thomas knows is that if he doesn't do something soon, he'll be a lifeless statue. When his father, Guy Fawkes, invites Thomas to join in the Gunpowder Plot, claiming that it will cure the plague, Thomas joins. But doing so will destroy the family of the girl that Thomas loves and backing out will send his father and the other conspirators to the gallows. Once his choice is made, there's no backing out.

WCS To Host Showing of 'Screenagers' Nov. 12 - Warsaw Blog

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.
