Rio Rancho Public Schools recognizes that our kids are navigating in waters that are constantly evolving and opening them up to new pressures and negativity. In an effort to keep our kids healthy, both physically and mentally, we want to help provide parents with the knowledge and resources to navigate this new technology heavy world that our children now live in. That’s why we’re hosting two events in February for parents and their children.

Screenagers: Growing up in the Digital AgeOn February 11 at 7 p.m. at Rio Rancho High School’s Performing Arts Center, we’ll team up with Albuquerque Public Schools to bring you a free community event with Collin Kartchner – TedX Speaker, Youth Advocate, Social Media Advocate and Dad. Collin will talk with parents about how to help our kids rise above the pressures and negativity of social media and technology. Specifically, he’ll discuss ways to combat suicide, depression, anxiety and addiction in our children.

Then, on February 18 at 6:30 p.m. at Premiere Cinemas in Rio Rancho, RRPS is hosting a free movie screening of Screenagers: Growing Up in the Digital Age, a documentary about the biggest parenting issue of our time.
