The Huron School Board is offering the movie "Bully" at no cost to anyone in the Huron area (including the Sanborn Central School District) on the following dates and times at the Logan Theatre in Huron: Thursday, November 1 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, November 4 at 12:00 noon. It is free of charge. Parents are encouraged to watch the trailer on the website (www.thebullyproject.com) as this is an intense movie and not designed for all children. It is rated PG13 but parents should be aware that there are some scenes that could be disturbing. The Huron School Board has paid for these showings and wants to pack the theatre for both shows. Sanborn Central would like to thank the Huron School Board for offering our students and parents this opportunity.
