  • Screenagers: Growing up in the Digital Age - 1/26, 6-7:30 pm in the MUR

    Ever wonder how to manage your kids' obsession with devices? You're not alone. The average child in America spends more time on screen than they do in school. The Heights is hosting a showing of Screenagers: Growing Up in the Digital Age, a documentary directed by New York pediatrician Dr. Delaney Ruston which chronicles her struggles with her own children. The movie will also be shown to 5th & 6th students the following day, Friday, Jan. 27th, during a school assembly. If you can't make the Jan. 26th screening, you can catch it on Feb. 1st at 6 pm, when it will be shown at Ocean Air School.

  • Understanding Differences Month

    Understanding Differences is a unique, award-winning disability awareness program created by Del Mar Heights Elementary School. By partnering with outside organizations, this school-wide program is able to teach students empathy and understanding through participation in science sessions, simulation exercises and by listening to guest speakers. This week, second graders will learn about vision. With the help of the Braille Institute, students will learn what it’s like to be blind and to use adaptive technologies to complete tasks. They’ll also experience what it might be like to navigate while visually impaired and get a brief overview of how the blind use white canes to safely navigate their environment.
