Family Movie Night - Friday, April 26th

Join Us for our PTA's Movie Night

We would love to invite all of our Puesta del Sol families to come out and join us for this FREE Family Community Event, where we will be showing Moana in Spanish (with English subtitles).  This is a great way for your child to earn Spanish Outside of School (SOS) hours, while having a great time with friends and family.  There will be free Popcorn and Water, as well as Bake Sale items, to keep us munching while we watch this fun movie filled with adventure. Outside food is also welcome, but in respect to Puesta del Sol's general policy, we ask that all outside food is both Peanut and Tree Nut Free to help keep this safe for all participants.

Doors will open at 6pm so that people can come early and grab a spot prior to the movie starting at 6:30pm.  We suggest bringing blankets, pillows and/or low beach chairs (please no higher camp chairs so that everyone will have a chance to see) to spread out on the gymnasium floor and get comfy for the evening.  Pajamas are more then welcomed and encouraged.

Please keep in mind, as with all of our PTA Family events, THIS IS NOT A DROP-OFF EVENT, and all children should be accompanied by an adult responsible for them during the entire time.  

To learn more about the Movie Moana please click HERE. For questions, please email events@puestadelsolpta.org
