Our thanks go to Principal Bob Stevens, who added relevant school-related examples, driving home the importance of understanding the potential consequences of choices being made by our kids with regards to choices made when using apps, social media, texting and other online media.
Volunteer parent, Paula Greve (Sr. Director, Data Science, McAfee Labs/Intel Security) presented a hybrid kid-friendly Internet Safety Program in the Media Center. Many thanks to Paula for her time and knowledge on the topic. Holding a presentation to share this information at a level better understood by a younger audience was a great benefit to the children of the attendees of our main program.

Race To Nowhere Synopsis
A concerned mother turned filmmaker aims her camera at the culture of hollow achievement and pressure to perform that has invaded America’s schools. It is destroying our children’s love of learning and feeding an epidemic of un prepared, disengaged, and unhealthy students. This remarkable film shines a light on the price our kids pay for this “race to nowhere.” Cheating is commonplace, stress-related illness, depression and burnout are rampant, and ironically, young people arrive at college and the workplace unprepared and uninspired.
Featuring the heartbreaking stories of young people who have been pushed to the brink, educators who are burned out and worried that students aren’t developing the skills needed for the global economy, “Race to Nowhere” points to the silent epidemic running rampant in our schools.
“Race to Nowhere” is a call to families, educators, experts and policy makers to examine current assumptions on how to best prepare the youth of America to become healthy, bright, contributing and leading citizens in the 21st century.
