SPOTSWOOD, NJ - The Spotswood School District opened its doors to students on September 6. For it's youngest students at the Schoenly School, the first week of school was capped off with an Ice Cream Social, hosted by the Spotswood PTA.

Schoenly's pre-kindergarteners, kindergarteners and first graders were invited to return to school in the evening on Friday, September 9 along with their families to get social over some music and ice cream. Schoenly teachers were on hand as well to enjoy some dessert and catch up with students and parents past and present.

The event was organized by the Spotswood PTA as a way to help students transition back into the school year. It was also organized to help students and parents meet one another in an environment that is a little different than the every day drop off and pick up at school.

A large group of Schoenly students and their families spent an hour eating ice cream, chatting and playing games in the school's multipurpose room. Fun was definitely had by all as the little ones needed to be strongly encouraged to leave their friends and school to head home when the evening's festivities came to an end.

The Spotswood PTA will be hosting another Ice Cream Social on Friday, September 16 at 7 p.m. for Appley students and their families in the multipurpose room at the Appleby School.
