An original version of the 5 Things column had McCarthy PTO meeting tonight, but McCarthy is not meeting. The district’s website is incorrect.

Afterwards, the film professor will lead a discussion after the movie. The move is 105 minutes long. Douglas has received three Academy Award nominations, an Oscar for Lifetime Achievement, and the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
