PAC Reminders

Movie Night at Ross Road is next Friday, November 9th!

Movie Night Nov 9

Join us for a fun Family Movie Night in the Ross Road School gym on Friday November 9th. The Ross Road School PAC presents ‘Teen Titans GO! To The Movies’. Come in your PJs with your comfy blankets and pillows, or lawn chairs, to set up in the gym and settle in for this silly animated film feature.

Why? To bring school families together for a fun fundraising event in support of the Ross Road School PAC.

A popcorn and candy concession will be available before the movie. And…if you want to truly take the night off and make it ‘dinner and a movie’, the Mom’s Grilled Cheese Truck will be on-site starting at 5:30pm providing delicious warm sandwiches for purchase.

Admission to the movie is by donation to the Ross Road School PAC.

This is a parent supervised event. Students will not be admitted without a supervising adult.

When the Teen Titans go to the big screen, they go big! “Teen Titans GO! to the Movies” finds our egocentric, wildly satirical Super Heroes in their first feature film extravaganza – a fresh, gleefully clever, kid-appropriately crass and tongue-in-cheek play on the superhero genre, complete with musical numbers.

Don’t miss Jesse Miller’s Social Media Awareness Presentations: November 15th.
