Screen Free Week - May 5 - 11
In a coordinated effort to spread the message throughout the Tri-Cities about the need for children to balance ‘screen time’ with ‘real time’, the Coquitlam Optimists, Coquitlam School District, Tri-Cities Early Childhood Development Committee, and Tri-Cities Middle Childhood Matters have partnered to launch the “Unplug & Connect” initiative.
