NORTH COLLINS - North Collins Elementary School PTA hosted its first Family Movie Night of the Year on Nov. 9. More than 90 children and their parents or grandparents joined in the cafetorium for a showing of "The Lorax."
Children were encouraged to wear pajamas, bring pillows and blankets so they could enjoy the movie in a "slumber party" atmosphere. Students watched the movie and were treated to popcorn, juice pouches and bottles of water. At the conclusion of the event, PTA raffled off two copies of the movie. The lucky winners were Kayla Dechow and Isabelle Wroblewski.
In keeping with the Lorax's "green" theme, the PTA sponsored a one-time shoe recycling event. Families donated old shoes and sneakers to be recycled into plastic decking and furniture through Terracycle.
Family Movie Night was held in North Collins.
