"Freaky Friday" Movie Night Dec. 1 at 7 p.m. to Benefit Puerto Rico
Lansing Middle School invites the Lansing community to join them for a screening featuring the movie “Freaky Friday.” All proceeds from the event will benefit the relief efforts in Puerto Rico. Students have arranged for “Freaky Friday” to show in the Lansing Middle School Auditorium on Friday, Dec. 1 at 7 p.m.
The idea for a movie night was the result of the “Be the Good” campaign project in Lansing Middle School. At the start of the school year, students on the Lansing Middle School sixth grade team worked together to brainstorm ways to “Be the Good” throughout their community. Sixth-graders brainstormed significant problems throughout their community, country, or world, and then signed up for a cause that was important to them. Causes explored included bullying, global warming, mental health, animal rights, world poverty, hunger, and more. One group focused on natural disaster relief, and after researching the problem and the possible ways to help, decided to raise money to support victims of the hurricanes in Puerto Rico.
There is no charge for the event, but donations of $3-$5 are appreciated. Students will also be collecting refundable bottles and cans at the event as well. All proceeds will be sent to Puerto Rico through a respected organization called Direct Relief. The “Freaky Friday” movie night is sponsored by the Lansing PTSO.
“Freaky Friday” stars Jamie Lee Curtis and Lindsay Lohan as a mother and teenage daughter who wake up one day and realize they have switched bodies. Through this experience, they learn a lot about each other and themselves. The film is rated PG.
Volunteers and material donations are needed to make this evening a success. For more information and to sign up, please visit http://signupschedule.com/lansingptso.
