Grow and Glow: Celebrating our Community’s Support for Education at Minerva France Elementary

The Westerville Education Foundation is excited to invite our community to Grow and Glow 2022 on Sunday, September 18, 2022 from 2-8pm at the brand new Minerva France Elementary School. The event is presented by Capital Kia, Bread Financial and Mount Carmel St. Ann’s and planned in partnership with many wonderful organizations including Westerville Education Challenge, Westerville Parent Council, Westerville Partners for Education and Visit Westerville. (see full list of partners and sponsors below).

Join us for dynamic student performances, engaging activities for families, interactive experiences and booths, food trucks and snacks as well as tours of the beautiful new building - Minerva France Elementary.

Come celebrate our students, educators, community organizations, and support important initiatives happening in our schools.

Over the past two years we have seen in unique focus the critical and important role our schools play in our community. We have also witnessed the heroic efforts of educators, students, community members and organizations in supporting education and our students. This event will be a fun and free opportunity for community members of all ages to come experience, enjoy and engage as we celebrate this support.
