The leather jacket gleams in the moonlight, and the ripped jeans add to his tuff exterior. This is a greaser, a hoodlum, a character in The Outsiders. Last Friday night the 8th graders had a movie night where we watched “The Outsiders”. From the beginning of the year, the 8th graders have been reading “The Outsiders” by S.E Hinton, a story of Ponyboy Curtis and his struggles with right and wrong in a society in which he believes he is an outsider. The 8th graders dressed up as characters from the novel for the event.
During the movie we had pizza, popcorn and optional snacks that we brought from our homes. Surya says this about the movie: “I think the movie was good but there were some parts that weren’t good, since it was an old movie. I liked how people came dressed up like a greaser and a soc.” I liked how people came dressed up like a greaser and a soc.” 6th graders and 7th graders, are you excited for the movie night when you become an 8th grader? See you at the rumble greasers. #AwESome #8thGrade #MovieNight
