While spending your Friday night at school might not seem like many students’ ideal way to spend their evening, over fifty seniors gathered on the field for James Madison High School’s 2nd Annual Senior Movie Night.
The tradition was started last year by the class of 2022 and was brought back due to its success. For this year’s Senior Movie Night, the seniors joined together on the field to watch a screening of the nostalgic Halloween classic, Halloween Town. Students brought their own blankets and got cozy with friends as they snacked on popcorn and candy provided by the school throughout the night. Whether watching the movie or simply talking to friends the entire time, students had a great opportunity to make lasting memories and relax after an exhausting school week.
The entry fee for the event was just $5, making it an affordable way for all seniors to get involved. As senior year can get quite expensive with dozens of other costs for seniors to worry about, events such as these are incredibly important to the Madison community. This was a fantastic way to start off the year’s senior activities and I hope for it to be a tradition that is continued for years to come.
A special thanks to the senior council and student government for arranging the event, the Parent Teacher’s Association for their generous donations, and the Theater Production Company (Stage Crew) for their work setting up behind the scenes.
