As we continue to explore both the impact of screen time and engage as a community to create more mindful and healthy interaction with electronic devices, I am becoming increasingly aware of the urgency of this issue for societies around the world, as well as practices that are gaining a foothold with parents, students and educators. Tech Shabbat https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oRdMUhBPRjY is one such practice, well suited to our community, which places high value on relationships and honoring the inherent dignity and worth of all individuals. I am interested in knowing both your concerns about screen time as well as your practices to participate in more mindful routines and applications at home.
Today you received a letter from David Feldman asking you to complete a survey for our Strategic Planning process. Please take the time to complete this short survey. Your input is critically important in shaping the future of Roeper as we take steps toward our next Strategic plan. Important initiatives undertaken in the past five years, such as the Birmingham project, have been the direct result of goals articulated in past strategic plans. The survey will take only minutes of your time – thanks for your assistance in guiding our future!
Wishing for a weekend of sunshine and fresh air, and the renewal of an extra hour of sleep as we “fall back.”
Best to all,
