Early Dismisal Movie

Miss Tina and I had SOOOOO much fun with everyone this afternoon during our Early Dismissal Movie program. Kids from as little as 4 on up to some brave 6th grades joined in on the fun after school let out for the summer. We watched Frozen!

First we made snowflakes. (I know it’s hot outside, but the movie does take place during the summer!).

Next, we started the movie and blew bubbles when anyone mentioned a snowman.

We waved around our snowflakes for “Let it Go”.

And threw ‘snow balls’ (Styrofoam balls) at the bad guys.

Oh yeah, there was popcorn. Lots of popcorn. 🙂

Check out all the other fun stuff we have going on this summer here. And don’t forget to sign up for the reading program here.

Hope to see you soon!

If any of you missed our Back to Hogwarts Bash, not to worry. We had so much fun that we have decided to try to do it again next year. Here is a recap of the night.

First, we sorted all the witches and wizards into houses.
