Dear Columbus Academy Families,
Please join the CA community for our 2019-20 Movie Night on Thursday, January 23, hosted by PACA Parent Education and the Alumni Office. Continuing with this year's theme of Flourishing, there will be three films being screened.
 
Two of the films are from The Representation Project and examine how gender roles and stereotypes limit our children's ability to flourish. Miss Representation focuses on the social pressures and messaging that girls experience while The Mask You Live In focuses on boys and masculinity. Both films offer thoughtful information and examples for helping children navigate their challenges.
 
The third film, No Small Matter, is the first feature documentary to explore the critical importance of early childhood education. Written and co-directed by Academy alumnus Greg Jacobs '87, the film presents poignant stories of real children, families and teachers, illustrating the impact of high-quality early childhood experiences. These positive, hopeful stories serve as motivational tools to support children and families.
 
Please see links below for trailers and to learn more about these three films.
