It’s Movie Night at Lafayette! Students MUST BE ACCOMPANIED BY AN ADULT at a 4:1 ratio. That’s four (4) students for every one (1) adult. The other way would be weird. There are two movies to choose from this year, both start at the same time and will end at 7:30pm.
Pizza will be available for $2 per slice. There will be popcorn. Remind your students to bring a reusable water bottle. Consider volunteering since you already have to be there to watch your children.
At the end of Movie Night, all attendees will be encouraged to clean up and leave the movie areas as were found.
Please consider helping with this year’s Movie Night. A reward to the Students for their excellent job raising money for the school during the Walk-A-Thon.
