  4. 4. So the greatest challenge is pulling this off, but here is what we have to date. All students will sign up during lunch times and select a movie to view that morning. Teachers supervising the movie rooms will have a list of students in their mailbox by the end of school on Thursday 3/13. Movie rooms can/will have a mix of students from all grade levels. Due to worries about copyright issues, students will donate money for the opportunity to attend. Teams are encouraged to set standards for those who cannot attend (i.e. if your team has a quarter incentive of all homework turned in, or no F’s, those students could remain on team in a study hall to make up missing work or improve on assessments). We will have the following movies available: 1. Despicable Me 2- the library- Amy Sears 2. Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2- Little Theater- Scheidy 3. Monsters University4. Finding Nemo5. Tangled6. Wreck it Ralph7. Madagascar 38. Toy Story 9. Sleeping Beauty10. The Lorax-6 Gold We are looking to have teams select one of the open movies above and host in your team area. We advise using your science rooms as they are typically the largest rooms. We are capping our audience in the library and little theater at 100. All others will be capped at 40. Off team and elective teachers will be encouraged to monitor and supervise hallways and perhaps assist with our concession stand that will be set up in the front commons. The fantastic Amy Sears is working on providing us with some DVD players that we can set up in your teams.
