Welcome to the Monday Movie Blog on Chief 187 Chatter. With this being Labor Day my thoughts turn to the upcoming school year. My children return to their classrooms tomorrow and another exciting year of homework, tests, projects, assemblies, and fieldtrips ensue. To get in the mindset of abandoning summer’s relaxed schedule and endless unconstructed fun, I have worked hard to capture the ideal topic for today.
This week’s focus is movies set in a school setting. Please list any and all movies that are set in a school of any kind, elementary, middle, high schools or even college and beyond. Remember to include a list of stars from the film as well as a brief review or synopsis.
I always find that a movie set at a school, including and sometimes especially a great sports movie, picks my spirits up and makes me anxious to surround myself with learning. I begin to embrace the school year, look forward to the comfort of a known schedule, and relax into a routine. Like it or not, the school year is coming and, for many of your children, already here, so we might as well invite it here with a smile rather than a scowl.
Please join me tomorrow for Chief 187 Chatter’s most popular feature, Simple Joys.
