School to hold Media Night @ the Movies

School to hold Media Night @ the Movies

Instead of going to cinemas at Bayfair or Jack London, students will be able to watch movies at their own school for free— and the students themselves will be the stars.

This is all part of a new program called Media Night @ the Movies which is a replacement for Student Exhibition Night.

This event will start at 6 p.m. on June 2 in the cafeteria with a potluck. Parents, teachers and students will then go into the auditorium, where teachers will show parents the movie of what their children have done this year.

“We thought this would be a better way to bring everyone together,” said teacher Sarah Mazzotta, who is one of the organizers.

Teachers will have their own one-minute portion of the movie to show highlights of their classes. The movie will also show projects that students have done such as Mock Congress, dissections, and the sophomore ice skating field trip.

In addition to the movie, the school will hold a promotion ceremony for freshmen.

This is new this year.  Usually, freshmen get the promotion in their advisory when no parents are present, so teachers decided to add the promotion ceremony to the evening’s event so that parents can attend.
