On Friday, September 20th, staff members held the 3rd Annual Cookout at SpringGate. A staff and community favorite, over 90 percent of Esten staff attended the event and connected with the 33 families and 35 students who are residents of the SpringGate community. Staff members provided perfectly grilled hot dogs, snacks, and drinks, as well as books and backpacks. Students rode bikes, played basketball, and had a great time fostering relationships with the faculty and staff at Esten. Esten alumni returned to spend time with former teachers, too! All those involved are looking forward to next year's cookout!
