North Elementary’s PTO offered mothers and daughters some quality time together on April 27 during its Mom-Daughter movie night.
The families gathered in the school’s all-purpose room and set up camping chairs or spread out blankets, pillows and sleeping bags to watch the movie “Chipwrecked.”
Before the movie began, moms and daughters were invited to enjoy extra activities throughout the school. The PTO hosted its annual book fair in the school’s art room, and in a kindergarten classroom, the families worked on art projects together.
The craft was a mirror surrounded by white card stock; the duos stuck foam flowers on the border and moms were invited to write words about their daughters on the blooms.
Mother Andrea Weakley wrote a few of her favorite words for her daughter, Kalie.
“The flowers say that she is kind, sweet and loving. Of those qualities, I think loving is my favorite,” Andrea Weakley said as her daughter gave her a hug.
Moments before the movie began, the moms and daughters settled into their spots. The PTO raffled off tickets for “best seat in the house,” or two cushy recliners donated by La-Z-Boy specifically for the event.
Mother Erin Gilmartin and student Natalee Patterson won the raffle for the seat of honor.
“Winning was definitely a surprise, but I’m fine with our chairs and blankets. I’m going to let Natalee and her friends enjoy the best seats this time,” Gilmartin said.
