Citizens for a Caledonia School District, a nonprofit group trying to form an independent school district in Caledonia, is hosting a movie night/activity for residents and families with children from 2 to 5 p.m. March 22 at the Sturtevant Sportsplex, 10116 Stellar Ave., in Sturtevant.

The event is a fundraiser for the group to pay for literature drops and mailers in Sturtevant and Caledonia, as both communities are asking residents if they are interested in the possibility of forming independent school districts in their respective communities in the April 7 election.

“The ballot measure will gauge public interesting in the pursuit of a school district. Each community is seeking to establish their own district, but the fundraiser is unifying the efforts of both,” according to a press release by the group.

The event will feature a movie. People can also buy popcorn, snacks and baked goods. Families can also enjoy planned activities, drawings and face painting.

Attendees are asked to pay a $6 per person donation.
