2019 Ice Cream Social
Friday, May 17 from 6-8pm
Coordinators: Michelle Rober, Julia Chen, Lynly Williams

The annual Angell Elementary Ice Cream Social, one of our biggest all-school events, is on Friday, May 17 from 6-8pm, rain or shine. This Angell tradition celebrates the end of the school year! All Angell students, staff and families are invited to an evening of fun, food, games, prizes and a chance to visit with friends before summer vacation.

The fun event is a carnival-like atmosphere with tickets sold for games and cotton candy. Pizza/drinks are available for sale and ice cream sundaes (or popsicles) are free of charge for all. There are great things in store including annual favorites like the cake walk, classroom tug of war, chicken toss, cream a 5th grader, and much moreInvite friends--all are welcome!

New this year: A Human Foosball game, Treasure Dig, squirt bottle race, and a candy wheel! (Michelle, should this section be here?)

Buy It Now” Gift Card Wall and Silent Auction

This year, parents can “Buy It Now” with gift card donations from our generous local businesses. These cards will be available during the Social on a first come, first served basis. They will be sold at a discount of their face value; we hope to sell out. In addition, 5 items will be run through a silent auction during the Social. 100% of the proceeds go back to Angell. 

Cash/Check is preferred for all purchases at the Ice Cream Social but credit cards will be accepted for a nominal fee.


We need YOUR help to make this special event happen. Please sign-up to volunteer and bring baked goods for the cake walk. Please sign-up for 1 volunteer slot and 1 cake walk baked good for EACH student that you have at Angell. Volunteer slots include helping with ticket and pizza sales, handing out ice cream, overseeing cotton candy and Cream a 5th grader, set-up, or clean-up. YOUR help will make this event a success. Please package your baked goods in serving sizes of 3-4 where possible (ex. 3-4 cookies/baggie, 2-3 cupcakes/package).


Pizza, ice cream sundaes, popsicles, cotton candy & more will be available at the event! Pizzas will be available for purchase at the event for $14, while supplies last, including slices for $2 each. Cotton candy requires tickets.
