ETS Events 2016-2017

We need to have a large parental presence to make our events run smoothly. Parents do not need to come to every event, but we ask that you attend at least half as many events as your student attends. Younger family members are certainly welcome on classdays and at events when accompanied by a parent.  All events are at the Hinrichs' residence unless stated otherwise.

Potluck and Barbeque Instructions

Please bring your own drinks, plates and utensils. Please bring a main course and if your last initial begins with A-L please bring a salad or side dish and if M-Z, a dessert. Please bring an amount proportionate to the number of mouths you bring with you. The barbeque will be available if you would like to cook meat or vegetables. If you are not able to bring food, please bring $4 per person for the pizza fund. Please give the money to Mr. Hinrichs as soon as you can the day of the event so he knows how much to order.  If you will be attending an event, please make sure that you can stay till the end once you arrive.
