Movie Night - Sing

Back by popular demand!  

Maple Grove parent council has organized a second movie night for our Maple Grove Community on Thursday March 9th in our school Gym. We will be showing the recent hit SING, so mark your calendars!  Please come at 6:30pm, with a blanket and a pillow to get comfy and watch the movie with us. You are welcome to wear your PJs if you wish too!

All students who attend the movie MUST come and watch with his/her parent for supervision.  If a student comes without his/her parent, they will not be admitted to the school movie night.  We respectfully ask that if families decide to come, that they make every effort to stay in the gym during the whole showing, so that they do not disrupt those watching the movie.  The running time of SING is 108 minutes, so we expect to be done the movie no later than 8:30pm.

We look forward to another great community event together. This will be our last Movie night this year, but we will plan to host another one in the fall.  We hope you can make it!
