Stephens holding family movie night tonight

Parents and students at Stephens Elementary School will have the chance to enjoy a show on the silver screen while raising money for one of the school’s organizations tonight as the school hosts one of its regular family movie night events.

“We have movie nights like this to benefit our academic booster club,” academic booster club sponsor and instructional coach Ivy Pike said. “Admission to the event is free, but we will be selling concessions like popcorn, pizza, candy, water and soda.”

Shown in the gym, the movie will be a family-friendly feature, though Pike said she does not want to reveal which film will be shown until the event itself to keep the students interested and excited for the show. Doors open at 5:30 p.m., with the mov ie beginning at 6. Everyone is encouraged to bring a blanket, chair or stadium seat, as the gym floor will serve as the seating area.

Since starting the movie night series last year, this event has become fairly popular among students and their parents, Pike said, with parents sharing a multitude of positive comments, especially given how expensive going to a movie theater can be.

“This has been a successful event for us in the past,” Pike said. “The biggest turnout we had last year was 75, so we always hope for a good turnout. We never know how many people will come out.”

The mission of the academic booster club, which this movie night is helping support, is to enhance academic success and achievement for all students at Stephens. This is accomplished, according to Pike, by rewarding students for their hard work and their efforts in the classroom on a daily basis.

“We started holding an awards day at the end of the first semester, in addition t o the one we normally hold at the end of the school year,” Pike said. “We purchase ribbons and certificates to hand out to the students during this.”

In addition to tonight’s movie night, Pike said Thursday nights in November will be Papa John’s nights, with proceeds from this fundraiser also going to support the academic booster club.

“We’re hoping for a good turnout (tonight),” Pike said.
