Sweet start for school

Students got a sweet treat when the Del Mar Heights Parent-Teacher Association threw its sixth annual Ice Cream Social on Sept. 9. The school community enjoyed ice cream, served by parents, teachers and staff members.

This event allows families to connect with new members of the school community and reconnect with friends whom they may not have seen over the summer.

Several local community groups were represented at the event, including the Heights Garden Club, the Boy Scouts, the Girl Scouts, the YMCA Adventure Guides and the Del Mar Schools Education Foundation.

The sixth-grade class sold pizza, salad and drinks, which were donated by sixth-grade parents. This allowed the sixth-graders to raise more than $900, which will help fund the sixth-grade play later this year.

“These sixth-graders are excellent workers and did their jobs with smiles. I am proud of them,” PTA member Jennifer McDowell said.

Rite Aid donated the ice cream and Vons donated root beer for the floats. Little Caesar’s Pizza in Claremont gave the sixth-graders a discount on the pizza.
