Jackie Robinson’s 100th Birthday

Tomorrow we will be celebrating the 100th birthday of Jackie Robinson by having a viewing of the biopic “42”! As you may know we have been reading “Promises To Keep: How Jackie Robinson Changed America” and the movie will give us an excellent opportunity to compare different forms of media depicting the same events. As this is a PG13 rated movie permission slips for viewing are required. A hard copy will go home today, there is a soft copy posted below and I will also accept an e-mail stating parental consent to watch the film.
