Maxson School Hosts Family Picnic
By Michele Earle
El Monte, CA –It was all about family at Maxson Elementary School’s 1st Annual Family Picnic held at the school earlier this month. The school’s beautiful grassy field was adorned with families and staff members who brought their blankets and picnic dinner to share casual time together. Music played in the background providing a fun mood for all.
Delicious tacos were available for purchase from Batres Tacos who generously donated 50% of the proceeds to the Maxson ASB (Associated Student Body) fund.
Raffle prizes, kindly donated by community businesses, provided an extra amount of fun. Thanks to the generosity of Liberty Tax Service, La Quebrada Mexican Restaurant, and Florentino’s Italian and Mexican Restaurant, several families went home with prizes.
”Our picnic was a wonderful way to start the 2012-2013 school year with our Maxson family,” said Dr. Aileen La Corte, Maxson principal. “It was great to see everyone come together for the event and it will be a great memory for our staff, students and families to cherish,” she added.
