Movie Day!

Hello Parents/Guardians of Team Black Students,


We are happy to inform you that Team Black students won the Fundraising Wars this month. To that end, they have earned a movie as a reward. We would like to have a movie and popcorn experience this Wednesday before the holiday weekend to celebrate this success. Team Black has chosen a number of different film options, and students will be able to decide which one they would like to view as we will show a different film in each of our rooms. We wanted to let you know that some of the choices have a PG-13 rating. If you would prefer your student to view a PG-rated film instead, please email Amy Benton at before Wednesday morning, and we will be sure to schedule appropriately. Thanks so much for your continued support, and we wish you a family-filled holiday!
