Parent Support

Wait Until 8th

At St. Alphonsus, we support the Wait Until 8th pledge, which empowers parents to rally together to delay giving children a smartphone until at least the end of 8th grade. By banding together, this will decrease the pressure felt by kids and parents alike over the kids having a smartphone. Click for FAQs.
