  • Stanton Senior Block Party

    Posted by Brianna Henry on 6/13/2019

    On Thursday May 23rd, 2019 Washington Fruit sponsored a first ever block party for Stanton Graduates and their families. As our neighbor they wanted to do something that would connect students and families to the community around them and show their support for the hard work our students have put forth throughout the year. It went from 5 to 8pm. HopTown Pizza and Winey Dogs provided food. Washington Fruit also brought in Knocker Balls for fun and entertainment for all. It was a success with over 25 graduates and their families attending. We want to give those businesses a HUGE thank you, we had a lot of fun and truly appreciated it.
