It’s Complicated: Children, Social Media and Mental Health

Sat | Jan 11 | 9:00-10:30 a.m. | Free! | RHS

Social networking, cell phones, and video games are game changers for youth and families. As parents and caregivers, we want our children to take advantage of incredible new digital opportunities but worry about the impact of too much screen time on our kids’ health, social skills, and school performance.

In this interactive and energizing presentation, Erin Walsh will use brain science, stories, and humor to explain how technology impacts mental health and wellness. Understand the key ingredients for wellness in the digital age and share practical strategies for nurturing these at home. Explore a range of questions including:

·         Does social media use cause anxiety and depression?

·         What should I be on the lookout for as more and more of my child’s life goes online?

·         Is video game addiction real?

·         How can I help my child develop positive media habits?

Childcare is available for ages 2-12 (registration required).

Meets criteria for Minnesota Teacher licensure renewal in Mental Health and is approved for 1.5 CEUs.

Erin Walsh, M.A. is a dynamic, knowledgeable speaker who has addressed a wide range of audiences on topics related to brain development and raising resilient young people in the digital age. Erin was instrumental to the development of the MediaWise movement and enjoyed working with her father, Dr. David Walsh, for 10 years at the National Institute on Media and the Family before creating Mind Positive Parenting together in 2010. In addition to her work with Mind Positive Parenting, Erin is a speaker with the Bolster Collaborative and teaches undergraduate students at the Higher Education Consortium for Urban Affairs where she teaches a program called Making Media, Making Change.

FEEPAY SITE OFFLINE

The FeePay site remains offline as of Tuesday. Sourcewell continues to work through issues experienced during the update process that began over winter break. Persisting issues may include the inability to login, complete meal account fund deposits, sign up for activities and reset passwords.

No student would be denied a regular school lunch if they do not have funds in their account; this does not include a la carte items. Students can also bring cash or a check for lunch.

The District Office remains in regular communication with Sourcewell, the company that owns FeePay, and will notify families when the system is back online. We apologize for the inconvenience and we appreciate your patience during this time.

(NEW) VARSITY BOYS HOCKEY

The Boys Varsity Hockey team (6-6-1) lost 3-2 in overtime to Eagan on Thursday night at the AVSA.  After a scoreless first period, the Lightning struck first with a goal by Josh Eernisse assisted by Jake Kemper.  Eagan tied the score and the teams headed into the third period tied 1-1.   Eastview gained the lead 2-1 on a goal by Cullen Johnson (Assists to Ryan Quaintance and Caden EspindaBanick), but the Cats’ countered to tie the score at 2-2 late in the third period.  Eagan scored the overtime winner early in the extra session to secure the win 3-2.  Bennett Weestrand was solid between the pipes stopping 35 of 38 shots.  Eastview is at home on Saturday afternoon at 2pm against the Rosemount Irish.  #whateverittakes; #19-6-1

 

(NEW) (Jan. 9) EASTVIEW HIGH SCHOOL BOYS JUNIOR VARSITY HOCKEY FALLS TO EAGAN 3-1

Eastview (2-10-1) played well but couldn't generate enough scoring chances in a tough 3-1 loss vs. Eagan Thursday night at Apple Valley Sports Arena.  EV controlled the play in the first period and out-shot the Wildcats 10-1.  However, the lone Eagan shot found the back of the net putting EV behind 1-0 after 15 minutes of play.  EV responded just 31 seconds into the second period when sophomore forward Cody Domagalski scored off a rebound (assists from sophomore forward Walker Bergland and junior defenseman Nick Lombardi).  Unfortunately, that would be the only goal for the Lightning.  Eagan scored the go-ahead goal half-way through the final period and then added an empty net goal with just 15 seconds left to make the final score 3-1.  EV out-shot Eagan 25-17 in the game.  Sophomore goalie Max Leach played the entire game and stopped 14 of 16 shots.  Next up, Eastview hosts Rosemount at Noon on Saturday, January 11 at Apple Valley Sports Arena.

THANK YOU & NEW WISH LIST ITEMS

The Learning Commons has recently received three significant donations of common household/garage goods from our wish list.  We were able to further stock our makerspace and shared some of the supplies with the applied math classes.  Thank you for your generous donations to build our Zapp Lab and other hands on work spaces!
 
We have added a few new items to our wish list, but have a special request. As your family may be upgrading your phone technology, please consider donating old phones to the Learning Commons.  We have a set of Google Cardboard Virtual Reality headsets, but no devices to project the videos.  The minimum requirement is simply a functioning phone which can connect to the internet.  We will be able to access hundreds of virtual tours with minimal investment and provide students with a whole new way to interact with rich learning opportunities.  Check out a sample video here and even more amazing with virtual reality!
