Halloween is right around the corner, so leadership students have organized a scary movie night to get Spartans in the spirit of Halloween. The movie night will take place on Wednesday, October 25th, and the movie Split will be featured. Split is a horror/thriller that was released in early 2017, focusing on a man with a multiple personality disorder who kidnaps three teenage girls. It was well received by audiences and was critically acclaimed. The movie will be held in the auditorium from 6:00-8:00 p.m and tickets will be $3 each.

Leadership also plans to include some other fun events to further boost enthusiasm towards the event. Because the movie night is so close to Halloween, it is bound to excite students for the eerie holiday. Students will have the opportunity to spend a day wearing their pajamas to school, then enjoy spending time with their peers while they watch the movie. This is the third year TJ has held a scary movie night and this time the event will be just as spine-tingling as past years. Leadership will hold a raffle at the end of the night and the winner will be chosen based on their ticket number. Prizes will be awarded to the winning number. Spartans also have the opportunity to go to the 13th Floor Haunted House after the movie. Students will sign up to go to the haunted house when they buy their tickets and the more students who sign up, the less the tickets will cost. Leadership member Zoya Robbins explained, “The price change is depending on the turnout, so final prices will be announced Wednesday. Ticket prices will be no higher than $25.”

The night will boost school spirit, by getting students involved in and excited for TJ events. A member of the Leadership team who helped plan the event, sophomore Oliver Jalowsky, said, “The movie will be creepy and kids will get excited for Halloween.” The hope is to get everyone hyped up for Halloween and make school spirit a priority. Leadership has planned many scary activities for the night to make sure this night is extra spooky. It is sure to be a thrilling and memorable night for all students who are planning on attending.
