St Regis Schools hosted a Back-to-School Bash Thursday, Aug. 22, from 4:30 to 7:30 to bring the community and school together. The event was sponsored by GEAR UP and the Headwaters Foundation.
The event featured various water features, including a dunk tank and water slides, provided by Jump for Joy. Attendees enjoyed pulled pork sandwiches, chips, pasta salads, coleslaw and cookies. Music was provided by Jacque Jolene Band. Jolene is a graduate of St Regis.
The Zero to Five Initiative and Linking Systems of Care were also present to talk with parents about services available to them and providing information about parenting and trauma screening. Office staff were also available to provide parents log in information for the student information system so parents can check on student grades.
Approximately 150 people attended the event, which the district hopes to become an annual event. With better weather, the number of participants should grow.
