Fall Movie & Family Night -




Thanks so much to everyone who participated in Sloan PTO's first family event of the year!  At Friday's (10/25) Fall Movie & Family Fun Night, over 150 Sloan students and their families made crafts, noshed on snacks, had their pictures taken with Murray the Mummy, and had their fortunes told by Fortune Teller Principal Burns!  The students, outfitted as characters of every kind, including princesses, Minions, witches, ninjas, and more, marched in a festive parade to the LGI to watch Hotel Transylvania on the big screen and eat tons of yummy popcorn!!!   To view photos from the evening, click here.  Also, make sure to keep an eye out for details about the next awesome Family Movie Night coming this spring, on Friday, April 11. Thanks again everyone for participating.  Hope to see you next time!


*Parents, if your children had their pictures taken with Murray the Mummy, copies will be sent to their homeroom teachers within a few weeks.
