Student Council will be hosting their first-ever movie night on Wednesday, Dec. 19. The event is free to attend and will be happening from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. This event will be open for the entire school to attend.

“[Movie night] just shows that we can have fun, because it is open for the public, it’s not just a StuCo thing,” senior parliamentarian Cecil Ehirindu said.

Senior student service officer Ariana Mata created the idea of having a movie night. The goal of the night is to have students come together and bond.

“Basically it was an idea to bring back the holiday spirit,” Mata said. “Now that we’re in high school it’s not [like] the day in elementary school [when] we would come to school in our pajamas and right before we got out of school we would watch Polar Express. We don’t really have that anymore, and I wanted to bring that back for us older kids.”

Students were able to vote on which film they wanted to watch through a poll on the Student Council Twitter page. The movies that students voted on were Grinch, Home Alone, Elf, and Polar Express. Out of 282 votes, Polar Express won by 27 percent.

“Lots of people have social media, so the best way [to get everybody to vote] is to put it all on [twitter] and let them vote,” Mata said.

The movie options are ran by principal Jeffrey Kajs and he can approve or deny the films he feels aren’t eligible for his students to view.

“We just run it by Mr. Kajs and he approves the content,” Ehirindu said. “He knows we won’t show anything explicit.”

The hardest part wasn’t movie approval but how to prepare for the students who will be attending. Having to gather movie ideas from students was difficult because opinions varied.

“It was difficult to come up with the movies to watch, if we should have food or not and if we should have it at school or not,” senior Jeromeiah Thomas said.
