Dear Fourth and Fifth Grade Parents,
As part of our study of the novel The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C. S. Lewis, I would like to show the film 2005 film version by Walt Disney Pictures / Walden Media. Because this film is rated PG, I need your permission for your child to participate.
The PG rating is due to violence, primarily in the opening scene of a German air raid on London, and a later scene of a battle in the fantasy world of Narnia. For more information, I recommend reading the review for parents provided at http://www.commonsensemedia.org/movie-reviews/the-chronicles-of-narnia-the-lion-the-witch-and-the-wardrobe .
The Fourth grade will begin watching the film on Thursday, May 16. The Fifth grade will view beginning next week.
Please indicate if you do or do not give permission for your student to view the film, and return by Thursday, May 16.
__________ My child, __________________________, may view The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.
__________ My child, __________________________, may NOT view The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. I understand an alternate activity will be provided.
