Ice Cream Treats

ice-cream1Guess what happens on the last day of school? That’s right, folks – ICE CREAM TREATS FOR ALL! Each student will have the opportunity to build their own Ice Cream Sundae with the toppings of their choice! What’s not to love about that? We are looking for volunteers to help out that day with set up, scooping ice cream, and assisting the kids with building the sundaes of their dreams….please contact Vanessa Struble at vstrubes@verizon.net if you are able to help out on June 23rd for the full day or any part of that day from 8:45 am to 12:30 pm. As a reward we promise all the ice cream you can eat!

Please join us and come armed with your ice cream scoopers!
