Movie night occurred Thursday April 14, 2016 in the North Quad. Students got together and bonded with each other while watching a movie. Some students were silent during the showing, while others talked quietly amongst themselves. A love for dinosaurs united them all, though, as they watched humans and dinosaurs interact in Jurassic World!

This movie night was organized for a very important event that most high school students wait for: Prom! Yes, that’s right! The money raised from the event (over $1,000!) is going towards funding Marshall Fundamental’s Prom. There were Prom Committee members all around the school selling tickets for $3 presale and $5 at the door. It was definitely cheaper than your average movie theater ticket!

The movies voted on were Fast and Furious 7, The Good Dinosaur, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and Jurassic World. The resulting winner was Jurassic World! Many students liked the idea of being outside and watching various dinosaurs run loose in a park.

Movie Night was one fundraiser that Prom Committee organized. Other than the movie night, the committee is also planning a fundraiser at Yogurtland as well as different restaurants willing to help Prom Committee out.

At movie night, the Prom Committee sold cotton candy, chips, cookies, soda, candy, and water. London Vasquez a sixth grader said, “Movie night was fun! I saw my friends and made a lot of new ones. Jurassic World was awesome!” Many people were excited they got to choose the movie. Students also enjoyed being with their friends outside of school hours.

Prom committee member Alicia Perez described the movie night as a success: “I worked the food stand and a bunch of people came. I felt like it really brought the school together!” Prom committee is trying really hard to make their prom special. In about a month,  prom will come and all the hard work will be paid off. Make sure you show your support in the different fundraisers that might take place in the near future!
