  • Fall Movie Night - Friday, 12/9, 3:45 - 5:45

    Chargers, please come to our Fall Movie Night on Friday, December 9th, sponsored by the PTO, IMC, and Student Council. We will be showing a film immediately after school in the cafeteria. Our movie license does not allow us to post the title online, but we can give a hint. It is an animated movie about what cats and dogs do when we are not at home. Listen to our morning announcements if you can't guess the title. Admission is just one dollar at the door, and the concession stand will be open for pop, popcorn, and candy. If you're planning to join us, please ask your ride home to be here by 5:45. See you at the movies!
