Community turns out for Fall Festival at Ethel Phillips
Fall is traditionally a season of harvesting and community. In that spirit, several teachers and staff at Ethel Phillips Elementary School worked with parents to plan and organize the school’s second annual Fall Festival/Festival de Otoño.
The event was an overwhelming success, with hundreds of students, families and community members in attendance.The event brought local businesses, middle and high school volunteers and the community onto the school campus for an evening that raised more than $2,500 for class field trips.
Event sponsors included: La Esperanza, La Superior, Panaderia La Michoacana, Versatil Company, Super Taco #2, Results 24 Hour Gym, Superior Donuts and school staff.
“It was great to see our students and their families enjoying themselves,” said Benerisa Perez, kindergarten teacher in the bilingual program and event organizer. “I am grateful to all those who made our Fall Festival a success. I am already planning next year’s!”
