Needham Youth Services Presents….

Needham Unplugged

 

It is so easy to get caught up in electronics --- TV, computers, Internet, X-Box, and Wii are fun, entertaining, and a nice way to relax.  However, it can become a problem when you find yourself spending 2, 4, 6 or even 8 hours a day plugged in…and little time is devoted to interacting with family and friends or simply engaging in quiet activities such as reading or walking.

 

Needham Unplugged is a month long awareness campaign in March to remind Needham families and residents to “unplug their electronics” and “plug into” each other.  It is a reminder that there is more to life than what is on the other side of a plug.

 

The highlight of this year’s program will be a no-homework, no-sports, and no-activities night for Needham Public School Students on March 13, 2014 Parents can play their part on March 15thby getting home from work no later than dinnertime, canceling/rescheduling any night meetings, and thinking about making this night a special time for the entire family. In addition, there will be no town-related meetings and virtually no community, school, or religious meetings held on that night.  We will also celebrate Social Networking-Free Thursdayon March 6th, Phone-Free Friday on March 7th, E-Mail-Free Friday on March 14th, and Text-Free Tuesday on March 25th .
