The New Olivet Worship Center is excited to announce that they will be celebrating National School Choice Week (January 26-February 1, 2020) with a special spotlight event!
The event will feature a special movie screening of Miss Virginia and will be hosted at The New Olivet Worship Center. Families, students, council members, clergy and community members are welcome to attend! Hailed as a “must-see” movie by USA Today, the film follows a struggling inner-city mother who sacrifices everything to give her son a good education. Unwilling to allow him to stay in a dangerous school, she launches a movement that could save his future—and that of thousands like him.
#PopcornWithPastor is a monthly movie night. K-12 students work as hosts, clerks, concessionaires, clean-up crew, etc. They have been trained in hospitality industry protocols. We do not charge admission, but we ask attendees to give generally in the purchase of popcorn and soda! The money raised is divided evenly among the children who work the event.
Started in 2011, National School Choice Week is the world’s largest annual education-related celebration. The goal of NSCW, which features participation from tens of thousands of schools and organizations, is to shine a positive spotlight on effective education options for children.
During National School Choice Week, schools across America celebrate the challenging, motivating, and effective education they provide to students. At the same time, parents use the week to learn more about the education options available to their children, in advance of the upcoming school year.
National School Choice Week is nonpartisan and nonpolitical, and is not related to any legislative advocacy efforts.
