In response to our recent SEL where we watched clips from the Social Dilemma, a film about addiction to our screens and what that actually looks like in the real world, 4 8th grade girls decided to give up social media for 36 hours. The rules were you had to turn in your phones and no checking social media on any other devices or allowing your friends to check for you, otherwise, your streak would be snapped. They were all successful, lasting 36 hours without looking at any social media. Even when they were temped by their phones being returned to them early, they all held strong and completed the challenge! We commend Sara, Lisa, Emi, and Eva on completing this challenge. It's not easy to disconnect from the world for an extended period of time and these 4 girls did it with a smile!
