Are you watching kids scroll through life, with their rapid-fire thumbs and a six-second attention span? Physician and filmmaker Delaney Ruston saw that with her own kids and learned that the average kid spends 6.5 hours a day looking at screens. She wondered about the impact of all this time and about the friction occurring in homes and schools around negotiating screen time—friction she knew all too well. 

In SCREENAGERS, as with her award-winning documentaries on mental health, Delaney takes a deeply personal approach as she probes into the vulnerable corners of family life, including her own, to explore struggles over social media, video games, academics and internet addiction. Through poignant, and unexpectedly funny stories, along with surprising insights from authors, psychologists, and brain scientists, SCREENAGERS reveals how tech time impacts kids’ development and offers solutions on how adults can empower kids to best navigate the digital world and find balance.

Our latest Big Night Out was held on Friday, March 22nd, 2019 at Saratoga National Golf Club, and raised over $60,000!  The event included a delicious buffet, cocktails, a fabulous silent auction, music and dancing with Soul Session, photos with Rob Spring Photography, and a Textile Pop Up Shop – all to benefit Saratoga Independent School’s mission.

Big Night Out is our largest fundraising event of the year, which raises money to subsidize our Annual Fund.

Our Annual Fund is used to help bridge the gap between tuition and the annual budget. Gifts to the Annual Fund are vital in assisting our school in providing financial aid and scholarships, as well as supporting academic programs and enhancements, such as community service activities, visiting artists and performers, upgrading classroom technology, purchasing outdoor sports equipment, and providing professional development opportunities for faculty and staff.
