Back to School Night: September 2018

Back to School Night: September 2018
Posted on 10/02/2018
Back to School NightOn Thursday, September 13th, we held our seventh annual Back to School Night/Community Cookout, and it was a huge success! Around 400 people turned out to kick off the beginning of the school year in style. The night began with a “meet and greet” in the gym, and families and staff were able to introduce themselves, get a taste of the curriculum for the year, and sign up for rolling parent/teacher conferences.

Back to School NightThe second portion of the evening was moved outside, and the grill was fired up! Attendees munched on burgers, hot dogs, pizza donated from Riverside Pizza down the street, and pulled pork and chicken from Redbones BBQ in Somerville. Families were able to meet various out-of-school time providers and city-wide community organizations. We were also treated to a rousing drumming performance; a bouncy house, snow cones, and cotton candy were other highlights of the night. All in all, it was a phenomenal start to the school year!"
