School Early Release Day Program Wednesday May 18th

CreedSchool has Early Release on  Wednesday May 18th. We will be showing the movie Creed in the Community Room. The Wednesday movie we usually show for adults has been selected for the early release so that our youth can attend. This movie is rated PG-13*, runs for 133 minutes & begins at 1:00PM.

Adonis Johnson never knew his famous father, world heavyweight champion Apollo Creed, who died before he was born. Still, there’s no denying that boxing is in his blood, so Adonis heads to Philadelphia, the site of Apollo Creed’s legendary match with a tough upstart named Rocky Balboa. Once in a City of Brotherly Love, Adonis tracks Rocky down and asks him to be his trainer.
