EMHS Students attend training at Linked Learning Conference 2/11
On Sunday, February 11, 32 EMHS students attended training to intern at the Linked Learning Conference being held at the Anaheim Marriott. The events management staff of Kesselman-Jones from Albuquerque, NM introduced the conference and the need for great customer service to the students. Then we all rolled up our sleeves and helped to get things ready for registration. 900 packets were stuffed for the expected 860 participants of the conference
Monday, February 12, Interns left to assist at the conference site, 50 educators from all over the USA got on buses to visit. They started at Santiago Middle School to see the connections to El Modena High School. Then they came to El Modena for lunch prepared by the Culinary Pathway students, a tour of the CTE Pathway classes, and a panel discussion. Next our students and teachers went to the Marriott to exhibit at the opening reception.
Tuesday and Wednesday the interns continue to work with the events staff as interns. They really enjoyed the opportunity. They would speak with all of the registrants, our photo students worked as photo assistants, and they enjoyed the makerspace. They all want to work at the Marriott and they enjoyed the great food.

ORANGE, CA (February 2, 2018) — El Modena High School PTSA is sponsoring a free showing on February 22 of “Screenagers” to raise awareness surrounding the impact of screen use on teens’ health, social development and academic performance. “Screenagers” is an award-winning documentary created by physician and filmmaker Delaney Ruston, who faced concerns about screen time in her medical practice as well as her own family.
The film focuses on teens’ use of smartphones and computers for screen-based activities, such as social media and video games. It shares expert research from psychologists, brain scientists and others who point to the negative effects of overuse and the need for balance. “Screenagers” concludes with a variety of practical ways to help kids use their screen time more responsibly.
“If families are experiencing difficulty with negotiating screen time, this film can be a catalyst for positive change,” says Rebecca Hultquist, El Modena PTSA president. “The film offers many effective strategies to help our children better navigate the complex digital world.”
“Screenagers” is approximately one hour and will be followed by a brief panel discussion. This community education event is open to all local parents and middle and high school students, not just those attending El Modena. There is no cost to attend.
