Popsicle Pop-in Parade (Ice Cream Social with an update!)

We are having our traditional Ice Cream Social for our students and families this year! However, it will look a bit different! Families will drive through either car loops in the front parking lots. We will have our tailgate tents set up and teachers will pass popsicles to students and family members. This event is for both in person and online families. We hope you'll join the fun to wave, greet, and share a popsicle!
