If you are of a certain age, you not only know who Mister Rogers is you probably have fond memories of his show. I can still remember my favorite episode when he visits the Crayola factory, and we see how crayons are made. He was a trailblazer for TV and an icon to a generation of parents and children

To celebrate what would have been Rogers 90th Birthday the documentary “Won’t You Be My Neighbor” was released to accolades and box office records. It examines the life and legacy of Rogers as well as his TV show “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood.” Next week you can view this film for free at Lake Forest Country Day School.

Say “I love you” this Valentine’s by introducing your children to this fantastic man and critically acclaimed film. The film will be shown in the newly renovated performing arts center and is free and open to the public.

“Mr. Rogers influenced generations of children, and this is a truly remarkable documentary that all parents and educators are likely to enjoy and learn from. We are delighted to be able to host this event for the community, and the screening will be followed by a short discussion.”

Head of School Joy Hurd

The film, directed by academy award-winning Morgan Neville, looks back at the legacy of Mr. Rogers focusing on his radically kind ideas. Fred Rogers stood firm in his belief about the importance of protecting childhood even while the world around him was rapidly changing. He changed the way TV was made for children and inspired countless educators and parents.

The film is rated PG-13 and Common Sense Media rates the film as appropriate for ages 10 and older. While this is a free showing that is open to the public, please reserve your seats online or call 847-615-6151
