As a way to bring awareness to local organization Breaking Free, the National Honors Society (NHS) will hold a movie night on Friday at 6:30 p.m in commons.

According to Breaking Free’s website, the organization focuses on drug and alcohol prevention as well as helping people overcome child abuse, family relationships, and mental health problems.

NHS invited Breaking Free to hold a 10 minute intermission at the movie night to inform students about drug and alcohol consequences and prevention.

“They’re going to learn about Breaking Free and what services they provide for drug users and alcohol users. They’re also going to talk about the effects of drugs and alcohol,” NHS member Zuri Rodriguez said. “We wanted to reach out to students. If they or someone they know are having problems with drugs or alcohol, they can reach out to an organization like this.”

NHS will show the Pixar movie “Coco” at the event.

“I brought it up because I haven’t seen it. Everyone said that it was good and so we said, ‘hey, why not?’” Rodriguez said when asked why Coco was picked. “It’s also great for the student body here. A large majority are Latin or Hispanic.”

NHS also organized the event to help students relax and have a fun time.

“We’re just coming back from break, we want to slowly ease into it. We want to bring students together,” Rodriguez said.

Students are welcomed to bring blankets or pillows to the event. NHS will provide mats.

Admission is free, but NHS will be offering concessions, donated my NHS members, at the event. The money will be donated to Breaking Free.
“Our main goal is to fundraise money for Breaking Free. We’ll have theater essentials like candies and popcorn and (also) baked good and other donated items from NHS members,” Rodriguez said.

NHS encourages students to attend and are welcomed to bring siblings if they wish.
“It’s a Friday night. You just came back from your break, don’t just let it slump all the way down,” Rodriguez said. “Come learn (because) you never know if you might need that information in the future for yourself or for someone else.”
