Your family is invited to RISE’s 4th “birthday” party!

RISE is an after school program held in East Palo Alto for Nixon students.  It was founded 4 years ago and is run by Nixon educators, Sheryl Humble and Karen Hoopes.

RISE is celebrating this special day —

  • on Saturday, October 20th
  • from 10am – 1pm
  • at Nixon school.

There will be activities, bounce houses and other inflatables, music, games, food, a lemonade stand, and a raffle with fun prizes.

The event is free but please plan on bringing money if you’d like to purchase food, lemonade, or raffle tickets. Raffle and lemonade stand proceeds will be used to purchase ChromeBooks for kids to use at RISE.

The first 75 children to register to come to the party will be guaranteed a special RISE goody bag so RSVP now. Sign up here.

Questions can be directed to Sheryl Humble.  Please note, this is not a “drop off event”, an adult must be on campus with your child(ren). Thank you.
