The Back to School Splash, held on Aug. 9, was the first event of its kind, a welcome back to school celebration that drew over 1800 students, family members and staff from the Yorkville School District to Raging Waves Water Park. The event was held from 3-6pm and was followed by a Back to School Rally at 6pm. The Rally included messages from one of our PTO Presidents and our Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Tim Shimp. There were also hundreds of giveaways- donations from local area businesses- and a student dance challenge. Entertainment included a DJ, a Balloon Artist, a Henna Tattoo Artist and a Face Painter.
