Movie under the stars

Movie under the stars

On Oct. 12, the families of Marrington Elementary were encouraged to bring out their lawn chairs and blankets to enjoy a night of family fun during “Movie Under the Stars” night. First up was the Chili Cook Off; Marrington staff members came with their most delicious Chili Game. For $10, families could purchase a ticket to sample every delicious variety of chili, then vote for their favorite. The Kindergarten Team of Chef/Teachers were the big winners. Families then watched “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown.” To round off the night, the new Disney holiday favorite, “Spookley The Square Pumpkin,” also aired.
