Smiles, a sense of community and getting involved were a few of the many themes found at the Back to School Ice Cream Social sponsored by Hembree Springs PTA at Hembree Park in August.
Over 300 students, parents, and staff celebrated the first week of school by getting together, eating ice cream and signing up for volunteer opportunities.
"The social was a "sweet" success," said PTA president, Jane Sarphie, "Family engagement is one of our key goals for the 2012-2013 school year. It provided a chance for our PTA, families, and staff to connect after a great first week back to school. It would not have been possible without the help of great volunteers like John Martin, Rachel Jordan, Gladys Kevers, Mitzi Rushing, Ally Hayworth and Laura Calvert."
The PTA has had a great start to the 2012-2013 year with over 240 memberships and 100 volunteer sign-ups.
