School events

Wow — was yesterday truly the first day of the new school year? Did my little girl start her last year in elementary school? The adage of time flying is certainly true once you have a child; it goes by in the blink of an eye and it’s all a blur.

With the school year, lots of school activities. I know, being on the PTA at Spring Garden, that we’re always holding family events and fundraisers, many open to the community. Does your school host events that are open to the public? Want to get the word out there about the family bingo night? The Yankee Candle fundraiser? The high school drama productions?

Be sure to send me all your information and I’ll gladly let you know if I can use it in the column. I want to share the events of all the schools in the North Carroll community and bring us all together for these activities.
