With unprecedented access over the course of a year, Love Them First: Lessons from Lucy Laney Elementary follows the determination of a charismatic north Minneapolis school principal, Mauri Melander Friestleben, as she sets out to undo history. Not only does Minnesota have the largest achievement gap between black and white children in the United States, Friestleben faced another seemingly impossible obstacle, with Lucy Laney at the bottom of the state's list of underperforming schools for two decades. Under Friestleben's leadership, standardized test scores from most black students began rising for the first time, but when the school encounters a heartbreaking setback, Friestleben is forced to confront the true measure of student success at Lucy Laney. It's a story of inspiration, heartbreak, perseverance and the power of love.
Join us following the movie to meet members of the artistic team who made this movie.

There’s nothing like a good fright and apparently lots of people agree! Family Fright, appropriate for families with younger children, will be from 5-6 pm. Full Fright, which will be scarier, will take place from 7-9 pm. Everyone is invited to attend. The Haunted Trail is free, but please note there will be scary stuff, so enter at your own risk! This is an outdoor activity with low lighting so remember to wear appropriate shoes, preferably tennis shoes and dress for the weather. Park at the Fuquay-Varina Community Center (820 S. Main Street) and take a bus to the Haunted Trail.
