Science Night Thank You

We would like to thank everyone who came to this year's Family Science and Engineering night. The event would not have been possible without the hard work of several members of the Creekside community, particularly Jill Kruper, Lea Lucchesi, and our wonderful parent and middle and high school student volunteers. We are grateful for the support of all of our vendors and the Creekside PTSA. Thank you for supporting science and engineering education in our school community!

Thanks,
Jane and Lara
