Permission Form

Students will be bringing home permission forms today in order for us to watch “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” on Thursday and Friday. If you are ok with your student watching the movie, please sign it and have them return it by Thursday.

The movie is from 1999 and is rated PG-13. It is almost exactly like the original story from Washington Irving. More “spooky” than scary.

If you do not want your student to watch the movie, they may bring a book and read in the hall on those 2 days.
