The Social Club: The Polar Express Movie Night 🍿
In December, the Social Club hosted a K-12 event for students with disabilities. Parents were invited to drop off their children with faculty volunteers and Social Club members, so that they could enjoy a ‘Night Out’. The event took place at the Brick AMC movie theater and featured a private showing of the "Polar Express". Social Club members provided extra fun such as pictures with Santa, Holiday Dancers, jingle bells for all movie goers, and train conductors who punched golden train tickets.
