Community Day at West Ave School in Bridgeton

Come out and join us on Saturday, August 19, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. to celebrate our kids in grades K-8. Children attending the Bridgeton Public School system, along with their families, are invited to enjoy a day filled with playing games, face painting, arts and crafts, live entertainment, special guest speakers, free haircuts, and much more.

There will be free bookbags and school supplies given out to the first 200 youth attending the event, free hamburgers, hot dogs and bottled water, and a $1 raffle to win a bike and a computer tablet. There will be vendors available for people wanting to eat a variety of foods.

The Community Day event at West Ave School is sponsored by the Bridgeton Area Brothers United (BABU) and the Bridgeton Board of Education and supported by companies and people who believe in our youth striving to excel in education.

BABU and the community will also present special honors to the late Richie Kates and the Honorable Judge Demetrica Todd on Community Day.

West Ave School is located at 51 N. West Avenue in Bridgeton. If it rains on August 19, the bookbags will be handed out at West Ave School on Saturday, August 26, at 10 a.m.
