Students and families of Stadium Drive Elementary gathered at the high school for their Ice Cream Social on April 27.

The school’s PTA organized the event to raise money to help fund their projects for the school and give the families a night to get together.

“It’s a fun night for the kids to get to hang out with their friends from school,” said Leslie Blevins, the president of the PTA. She and her volunteers made the night run smoothly.

Each student and parent got to make their own ice cream sundae.

In addition to the ice cream, the PTA had a DJ and a space for the children to dance, a basket raffle and a photo booth for families to take pictures together.

“This event helps the school build upon that community feeling,” said Michael Zoccali, the school’s principal. He walked around and talked to the families during the event.

The PTA will use the money in ways that will help the school. Their previous funding helped them afford an educational STEM event from the OH WOW! The Roger and Gloria Jones Children’s Center for Science and Technology that occurred in May. They also bought a new piece of equipment for the school’s playground.
