Friday Night Lights


Even if there is rain, Friday Night Lights will go on as planned but it will be held in the gym instead of the bus lot.

Please note that if you pre-ordered Chick-fil-A sandwiches and your plans have changed and will not attend the event, please still stop by to pick up your order. The meals have been pre-paid for based on the early orders received. If it is raining, there will have “drive thru” at the gym door for you to pull up and pick up your dinner order.

Friday Night Lights is this Friday, September 25 from 5:00-7:00pm. Join us as we tailgate Selwyn Style! This family-friendly event will include the Myers Park band and cheerleaders, a DJ, Chick-fil-A, raffle prizes and more.

Raffle and additional information was sent home in your child’s backpack. Please return your raffle order by Tuesday, September 22. Click here to print extra ticket sheets.

We still need help from Moms and Dads to help make this event a success! Click here to sign up to volunteer.

Tickets for the Myers Park High School football game versus Rocky River will be on sale during FNL. $5/adults and free for Selwyn students and staff. Come cheer on the Mustangs!

Just a friendly reminder that in the fun and frenzy of FNL to please keep an eye on your children to make sure they are staying safe and following the Sewlyn code of conduct!
