Movie Night Success!

The first Family Movie Night of the year was a huge success!

We estimated more than 250 students, parents and friends were in attendance to watch the movie “Brave”.  There was plenty of popcorn, licorice and candy being had by all.

The Wascher PTA would like to thank the McMinnville Jaycees for donating the water and McMinnville Les Schwab for donating the popcorn.

Thank you to everyone who attended we hope that you will
join us for the next Family Movie Night in the Spring.

Flash Alert Test

McMinnville School District uses the FlashAlert Messenger System to notify parents, staff and community members about emergencies such as breaking news and weather closure information.

To ensure that the system is working for subscribers a test of the Flash Alert system is scheduled for today, Thursday, November 15th.

FlashAlert has been cleaning up it’s database and has deleted accounts that have been inactive for more than 16 months or had invalid addresses.  Those subscribers were notified in advance.

If you think you are a current FlasAlert subscriber, please watch for the test alert today.  If you expect a message but did not get one, log in to review you account at:

Popcorn Poppers Still Needed

We are still looking for a couple people who can volunteer to come before the movie on Friday to help pop some popcorn.  If you can come for a half hour before or can take a shift during the movie we would appreciate it.  Please let us know if you can help by sending us an e-mail at
