Save the date - 9th Annual Open House and Eastside Community/School BBQ
Wednesday, August 5, 2015 3:10 PM


Join us for the 9th annual open house and eastside community/schools BBQ on Thursday, August 20, 2015. All eastside schools are kicking off the school year together (see below BBQ letter for the list of schools and open house times). Bring your family, friends and neighbors. Last year we had over 2,000 people attend this event.

Edison's Open House: 4 p.m. - 6 p.m.
We invite you to see our school and learn more about Edison’s academic programs and community partnerships. Meet the staff, visit classrooms, sign-up for athletics, clubs/activities and visit community information tables. Several areas of the building have been renovated this past year including the auditorium, media center and alumni room. The Pete Guzy football field continues to undergo renovations that will foster the "green initiatives" at Edison High School.  This project is funded by a partnership between the Mississippi Watershed Management Organization (MWMO) and the Holland Neighborhood Improvement Association (HNIA).

Eastside Community/Schools BBQ: 3:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m
Northeast schools, Minneapolis Public Schools’ staff, students, alumni, families and community kick off the new school year at the 8th annual NE Community BBQ. This is a FREE event! Once again there will be  shuttle service (see below document) between schools. 

Due to popular demand, the Minneapolis Food Truck, photo booth, and Playworks Minnesota will be returning this year.  These are just a few highlights of this year's eastside community/school BBQ. Of course there will be plenty of delicious food provided by local restaurants and community members.

Be sure to give a huge shout-out to all of the sponsors (see below BBQ letter). This event would not be possible without their generosity and commitment to our schools!!!
