🍦 Evergreen Campus Back To School Ice Cream Social

Please join us on Wednesday, August 30 for Evergreen's first community event, a back-to-school ice cream social. We will gather on the Evergreen playground at 6:00 pm to be welcomed to the new school year by Principal Schultze. Enjoy some ice cream treats and each other's company. Midway through the evening, Kindergarten through 5th-grade parents will be welcomed into the building to peruse their children's classrooms for a casual time of information sharing and Q&A. The Evergreen PTO will be present with their event sign-ups, looking for volunteers for the upcoming school year. See you there!
