We are also excited that Summers Plumbing Heating & Cooling has agreed to be our official host sponsor. Its also a way to start the school year with everyone feeling positive about everything. So many of our families have been through a lot the past couple of years, so its been nice to be able to plan something fun to celebrate our wonderful schools and our great community. We are looking forward to this being a great event for a lot of people. We are really encouraging our school families, staff and community to support the event.”
