Class of 2019 Welcome Social

The Parents Association held a “Welcome Social” for the new incoming students and their families in August. A great time was had by all!! The new students were able to mingle with other new students and the upperclassmen while their parents were able to meet administrators and current parents. Everyone cooled off from the heat while enjoying refreshing ice cream and water ice provided by The Weldon Soda Fountain. Some of McDevitt’s students worked the ice cream truck serving the treats. The McDevitt family is happy to welcome all of our new students! Take a look below at some pictures from the event.

A special thanks to Mike Oberholtzer for DJ'ing the event !!!!
