End of Year Celebration and Bobcat Bash + Dash

Let’s celebrate our students' hard work this school year with a carnival-style end of year celebration onSaturday, April 30thfrom 10-1pm.
And we are so-o-o excited to announce a NEW event to be held in conjunction with the End of Year par-tay…Bobcat Bash + Dash. This will be a family-friendly obstacle course to test our young and old endurance.
Take a Spring "Break"
Get a “break” from the boredom and mayhem with the kids being out of school and head toSir Veza’s at Speedway/Swan on Wednesday, March 30thfrom 12-3pm.
If Ventana Vista getting15% back isn’t motivation enough, how ‘bout this…
There will be a KIDS ONLY zone at Sir Veza’s!! Yes, you heard that right. Parents can enjoy an adult only, quiet, peaceful lunch while the kids can be loud and raucous in a separate room. The kiddos will have their own wait staff and plenty of craft activities to keep them *literally* out of your hair for an hour or so.
You need this mid-week Spring Break “break”. As well as that bowl of guac and chips!
