Little Big Night
Friday, April 21 – Waters Soccer Field 3:15-5:15 p.m.
Big Night has always been about the kids, but our students are not able to join in on the Big Night fun. So this year we are offering a special event for the kids called Little Big Night! All students, siblings, parents and community members are invited to join us on the school soccer field for a fun-filled after school event on Friday, April 21 starting at 3:15 p.m.
We have partnered with Voice of the City, a not-for-profit arts alliance that helps build community through art, and they will have amazing artists perform a modern variety show for the Waters community. Join us for juggling, singing, and dancing!
We are also excited to partner with Little Lulu's Italian Ice, owned by a Waters parent, to hand out natural delicious flavors of Italian ice during our Little Big Night event. And a pizza food truck will be stationed by the school parking lot to serve up your Friday night dinner!
We will also have an arts and craft table where the little ones can make their very own fun Carnivale mask.
Stay for a bit or stay for a while but don't miss out on this first time ever Little Big Night event for the whole family!
