Save Some Dates For Back To School Fun


SPOTSWOOD, NJ - It may be summer vacation, but the Spotswood PTA is still hard at work gearing up for the 2017-18 school year, which begins in the Spotswood School District on Thursday, September 7. The Spotswood PTA announced dates for back-to-school fun that is designed to allow kids, parents and teachers to get to know one another outside of the classroom setting.

"I absolutely love these events because it's an opportunity for students and their families to meet each other, as well as our teachers and staff in a relaxed, fun environment...and who doesn't love ice cream," said Spotswood PTA President Melissa Hallerman.

Last year's September PTA sponsored ice cream socials were a big hit with teachers, kids and parents. Both events were well attended and lots of fun was had by all, including the Memorial Middle School students who helped dish out the cool treats.
