Screen-Free Holiday Initiative

Week12_05Our upcoming Screen-Free Holiday Thanksgiving technology fast is highlighting the values of our learning community and motivating generosity through meaningful action.

We invite you to commit to spending some time fully present with friends and family in the absence of satellite-connected technology this Thanksgiving! You do not need to be a Headwaters School community member to participate–this is open to all! Participants can choose to seek sponsorships to support their screen-free pledge hours, with all funds raised going toward Headwaters School Annual Fund. Participants will be encouraged to complete their technology fast during the Thanksgiving holiday week.

You can sign-up and receive more detailed information by completing this simple form. If you have more questions about how to participate, please contact Keelan at or 512-623-5419, or see our Screen-Free FAQs.

Why Screen-Free?

“…[It]’s a simple equation: kids who spend more time on media spend less time reading, outdoors, and playing music. This is true for any of us: when we’re plugged into electronics, we’re not connected to each other.”
–from Nurturing the Soul of Your Family by Renée Peterson Trudeau (author and Headwaters parent)

We hope you will join us in this powerful effort, and we wish you a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday.
