MAES to host Summer Extravaganza

In just a few weeks, the new school year will begin. It’s a time of excitement, learning and fun. To kick-off the 2019-2020 school year,  the Meyersdale Area Educational Boosters will be hosting a Summer Extravaganza on August 6.


This event will feature a petting zoo, provided by Quiver Farms. Quiver Farms is excited to return to Meyersdale Area Elementary School and will have a wide array of farm animals for the students to meet and learn about!


Students will also have an opportunity to play on a bounce house and enjoy the many games and toys housed in the playground shed, located on the MAES playground. All in attendance will also receive a delicious ice cream treat. 


Pritts said organizers are excited to host this special event and are confident students and families alike will have a great time.

“We think this will be a great event for students to enjoy various activities while having an opportunity to see friends before returning to school,” he explained. 


To help prepare parents and students for the upcoming school year, homeroom, assignments and schedules will be available during the Summer Extravaganza. However, if your family is unable to attend, schedules will be mailed the following day.
