Starling Elementary’s Back 2 School bash a roaring success

Last weekend was a glorious one for Grayson and especially Starling Elementary School. The seven year old school hosted its second annual Back 2 School Bash for a massive crowd of parents, teachers and students. The outdoor party, which featured two inflatable obstacle courses, carnival games, face painting, a live DJ and more, drew hundreds of people to the school in celebration. Several hundred pounds of canned goods were collected for the Southeast Gwinnett Co-op as well.

Grayson mayor Allison Wilkerson was on hand to help Starling’s principal, Donna Ledford, cut the ribbon on the school’s newest piece of playground equipment. Actually, the ribbon wasn’t cut–instead, several of the students in attendance ran through the ribbon once Ledford gave permission. The new equipment was purchased by the Starling PTA.
