Kiwanis Klassic Family Movie Night

The next Kiwanis Klassic Family Movie Night is Sunday, December 13, 2015, and the Kiwanis Club of Danville will be showing "It's a Wonderful Life." Showtime is 7:00pm.


This 1947 classic stars James Stewart and Donna Reed, telling the story of an angel who helps a compassionate but despairingly frustrated businessman by showing what life would have been like if he never existed. The movie is rated PG and has a 130-minute run time.

Tickets are sold at the door for $3 per adult and $1 per child. All proceeds from ticket sales help the Kiwanis Club of Danville fund their multitude of community projects. For more information, visit http://www.danvillekiwanis.org.

No School on the Wednesday Prior to Thanksgiving

Due to Leap Year Day falling on February 29, 2016, this year, an extra day was inadvertently included in our school calendar. This school year only, school will be closed on Wednesday, November 25 to correct this oversight. Enjoy the five-day weekend.

Box Tops for Education Contest Starts NOW

The PSS is kicking off its Box Tops for Education contest for this school year. Save your Box Tops and Campbell’s soup labels for this contest starting now! Period 3 for 7th and 8th graders and Period 1 for 5th and 6th graders will be considered the contest classrooms. Box Tops and soup labels should be brought to school in a zip lock bag with your student's name and your teacher's name written on it. The money from the Soup Labels goes to funding classroom materials and Box Tops are used for physical education equipment. The contest ends January 8th, 2016, but don’t wait! Start sending them in now! Tell grandma, neighbors, aunts, etc to save during the holiday cooking and baking. Winning classrooms will earn vouchers for The Royal movie theater.
