Dear Parents, Guardians and GW Staff
Here's The Scoop! On Friday, June 11 from 12:15 pm to 1:15 pm, GW HSA will be hosting an ice cream party for our middle schoolers. A Ben & Jerry's truck will be onsite at GW and will be serving their delicious flavors with sprinkles on top. This will be a grab and go event and the truck will be parked at the cut-out on Washington Place. Make your purchase today by clicking this link https://www.gwhsa.org/ice-cream-party. You can also donate one to another child, teacher or staff member! Two scoops of ice cream will be served in a cup with sprinkles on top. You can choose from four delicious nut-free flavors. Non-dairy option for ice cream will also be available. Deadline to purchase is Thursday, June 10. We are so happy to bring one more fun event to GW before the summer break and we are so grateful for everyone's continued support.
