Devotion School Alliance
Half Day Matinee (HDM) Registration Is Open! HDM offers childcare for Lower Devo students from dismissal to 2:30pm on the upcoming half days, during which teachers host parent conferences. Students are supervised while they hang out, have a snack and watch a movie together at school. Fall dates and movie selection are:
Tuesday, Nov. 14: The Lego Batman Movie
Wednesday, Nov. 29: The Boss Baby
Tuesday, Dec. 5: Despicable Me 3
Wednesday, Dec. 13: The Emoji Movie
The cost is $20 per child for the 4-afternoon Fall session. (Scholarships available).
To register, go to https://dsapto.wufoo.com/forms/whguxy20aaizg7/
The PTO can only provide this service with the help of parent volunteers (who don't have to pay for their children to attend HDM!). Volunteers can sign up to help with one, two, three or all four movies and don't need to commit to being there for the whole afternoon. Duck out for your teacher conference (or squeeze in a quick trip to Trader Joe's!). Younger siblings of any age are also welcome. The more volunteers we recruit, the less work it will be for everyone involved.
To help out, please email Nicola Griffin, firstname.lastname@example.org.
