Snowflake 2015 – Sat. Jan. 30

Do You Have a Middle School Student in D65? What are they doing January 30, 2015?

GOING TO SNOWFLAKE!

Evanston 6th-8th grade students have been living it up at Snowflake since 2001, when it was first held in our community.  The event aims to teach attendees important life skills such as decision-making, communication, and problem-solving, in the coolest and most interactive ways possible.  Snowflake engages middle school, high school, and Northwestern students, as well as adults from the community, in order to create a fun and meaningful experience for all involved.

This year’s Snowflake theme is “Your Choice. Your Future.”  It will feature 2 large group performances.  The first will be an interactive drumming and dance workshop by S.O.U.L. Creations.  The second will be by Imagination Theater.  Of course your son/daughter will participate in various small group activities, eat pizza and have lots of fun!

A special presentation will be available for YOU, the parents, at the end of the evening to learn about what your son/daughter did during the evening.
