Rock the Block Community Party Coming to Westfield High School on Friday, August 5th

The Westfield community, and the surrounding areas, are invited to attend the first-ever Rock the Block community party held on the Westfield High School practice football field. Scheduled for Friday, August 5, the free, public event is slated to feature carnival-style games, activities for all ages, musical performances, a live DJ and a parade of food trucks.

This community party is to celebrate the start of a new school year for Westfield Washington Schools. There will be community organizations in attendance as well as district resources to help families get their school year started in a positive fashion.

Ashley Knott, coordinator of family and community engagement for Westfield Washington Schools, says an event like this is long overdue.

“We’ve all gone through so much lately that it’s time we start celebrating our successes,” Knott said. “We have an amazing school district, an awesome community and it finally feels like the pandemic is in our rearview mirror. It’s been a few years since this school district has been able to start the school year off with a big event, so I know a lot of people in our community will be looking forward to an event like this.”

If your company or organization would like to partner with the school district to put on this event with a booth or sponsorship, visit https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeqQYj8TO5B2Hn3ZVV_xHe_lckYa5egHnYYRuMZnalJsR5gFQ/viewform to register. For questions, contact knotta@wws.k12.in.us.

Details will be forthcoming as they are confirmed.
