Award-winning Documentary: That’s a Family! Now Available in the PTA Office

Even if you could not make the screening this week at school, you still have the opportunity to view the wonderful award-winning documentary, "That's A Family!" directed by Debra Chasnoff.

With humor and courage this film explores all family types from a child’s perspective and breaks new ground in helping children of all ages understand the different kinds of families in the world today: parents of different races or religions, divorced or single, gay or lesbian, adoptive parents or grandparents as guardians, a parent in a wheelchair. Film addresses themes of tolerance, the awareness of diversity, enhanced school safety and violence prevention.
