We All Scream for Ice Cream!
More than 300 students and parents beat the heat at an ice cream social and open house at Dunbar Elementary on August 27. Visitors had the opportunity to meet teachers and staff and learn about the school’s community partnerships.
The event was sponsored by Wells Fargo Advisors, which has a multiyear partnership with SLPS. Along with supplying roughly 200 tutors to three SLPS schools—Dunbar Elementary, Carr Lane VPA Middle, and Vashon High—Wells Fargo Advisors also provides incentive programs to drive academic improvement, behavior, and attendance. Other support includes educational activities for students and professional development for teachers and administrators.Each visitor enjoyed a creamy cup of Ted Drewes frozen custard and a trip to the “sundae bar” with a variety of delicious toppings. Tables were set up around the gymnasium where representatives from Wells Fargo Advisors, Boy Scouts, Big Brothers Big Sisters, and other school partners provided information about their programs.
