Our First-Ever Back to School Family BBQ

Thank you so much to the Co-Chairs, Stephanie Ehrhart, and Lauren Jones, for their hard work organizing and facilitating the first-ever EMS Family BBQ, an evening of games on the field & music by Mr. Parisi, great food, and awesome conversations on September 9, 2022. The event was from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm in the EMS bus loop and the fields. I think we can all say that it was a huge hit with our EMS Community. Hopefully, this will be the first of many more!
Garden Catering &  Dominic’s Ice Cream truck had customers lined up even after the event ended. Spirit Wear was literally cleared out!!! There will be no shortage of school spirit on display this year at Eastern. Maureen helped signup members for the PTA. Woo Hoo!
Mr. Parisi, this event could not nearly be the success that it was without your support. How you kept hundreds of kids engaged, happy and safe is beyond us. Thank you!
We are so lucky to have administrators like Mr. Goldstein  & Ms. Parisi who are so engaged with our families. It makes such a difference to the energy in our community. Thank you for showing your support. 
Kris, your support is invaluable! Please thank your team for all their help with the event logistics.
