PARENT NIGHT! MOVIE NIGHT~ OCTOBER 6th

Teachers-

Our Parent Night has been changed. We tentatively had September 29th as our Public Meeting but Parental Involvement Committee met and created a great family fun night for all to enjoy.


Dear Southside Staff:


We will be having a Movie Night on Tuesday, October 6th as a Parent Night at Southside. It will be on a big screen projector that is rented on the back playground. (Thank you Lisa Elfrink for the wonderful idea)


For the Parental Involvement Piece, each grade level is going to create a "Sneak Peak" or "Movie Trailer" into your grade level that will serve as a preview to the movie showing.


Each grade level needs to create a 2-3 minute "Sneak Peak" into your grade level. It could be something informative: A guided reading group, math lesson, etc... The "Sneak Peak" will be in place of teachers being in the classroom to meet and greet parents for a parent night. You will showcase your grade level in your 2-3 minute "Sneak Peak".


Mrs. Dalton has a "movie maker" video camera you will need to use to record your videos. Please have your video recorded and turned into Mrs. Hanna and Bridges by Thursday, October 1st.


Looking forward to a Fabulous Movie Night!

Andrea Neville/ Casey Hanna
