Everyone loves a party, and what better way to get excited for the school year than with a back-to-school bash? Each year schools throughout the nation host back-to-school events to connect families and friends and ease the anxiety students may have for the new school year.
Community schools Buffalo Ridge Elementary (BRE), Timber Trail Elementary (TTE) and DCS Montessori (DCSM) hosted outdoor events with bounce houses, favorite carnival games and more.
The DCSM back-to-school bash dates to 2020 and is called the Montessori Fall Festival. The event is one of the most loved events of the school year. Grilled burgers and hot dogs were served to students, parents, teachers and staff while children jumped on three inflatables, played giant Jenga, and participated in a bubble station, face painting and an animal show from Party Safari. Nature Educator had an outreach tent that supplied nonstop entertainment.
TTE hosted its first back-to-school bash. Participants enjoyed an array of games: milk can toss, balloon pop and a dunk tank. The In-N-Out Cookout truck was the highlight of the event and was a fantastic way to raise funds for TTE while also helping abused and neglected children through the In-N-Out Burger Foundation®.
BRE’s annual carnival served traditional carnival snacks of popcorn, cotton candy and food truck fare. Traditional carnival games along with the cake walk, dunk tank and Nerf tag were favored by many families and students.
