How about taking the family to the movies - at the school gym? That is exactly what the parents of students attending Pioneer Elementary School did this past Friday night.

"The gym was packed," said Jennifer Allen, assistant principal at the Sunnyside elementary school.

"We had free popcorn and everyone had a great time," she said.

The family movie night was one of the activities proposed by the new Pioneer Elementary School Parent Booster Club, which formed earlier this school year, Allen explained.

Families gathered at the school gym last Friday to watch the free screening of the movie "Brother Bear," Allen said.

The booster club plans to organize more family-oriented evening activities in the future, she added.

"It was just a very fun time for all who attended," she said.

The booster club, which was reorganized earlier this year, is also planning other activities in the coming months, said Kris Diddens, Pioneer Elementary School principal. In December, the group organized a food drive.

This month, the group will hold Pioneer's first ever t-shirt sale, Diddens said.

In March, the booster club will take part in the annual Pioneer reading celebration.
