What We Do‎ > ‎

Family Events

We hold a variety of Family Events with the goal of building a strong Broadmeadow community by allowing families a chance to interact outside of the school day.  As a large school, we have found that holding a mix of grade-level and whole-school events works well.  Most of these events are offered to Broadmeadow families for free.  Some events charge a nominal fee, typically less than $5, to cover the costs of supplies or facility rentals.  Those events are indicated by a ($).
 
We are always looking for ideas for new events!  If you have an idea, please contact one of the Family Events Coordinators at Familyevents@broadmeadowptc.org.
 
Back to School Ice Cream Social

The Ice Cream Social is held on a Friday night in September on the school playground.  Come enjoy some ice cream while catching up with old friends and meeting new families.

Kindergarten Pumpkin Patch
 
The Kindergarten Pumpkin Patch is held in the fall to allow families from the morning and afternoon kindergarten classes to get to know each other.  Kids decorate a bag and then hunt for "pumpkins" on the playground.  Everyone goes home with prizes.
 
1st Grade Game Night
 
Join fellow 1st graders and their families in the cafeteria for family-friendly games.  This is a great chance to meet other 1st grade families!

Taste of Broadmeadow

Join us for our school-wide potluck celebrating the diversity of the families at Broadmeadow.
