The Girls Play Sports Festival
was an amazing afternoon! Over 200
fifth grade girls from Evanston elementary schools took the bus from their schools to ETHS, had lunch with the ETHS female student athletes and spent an afternoon playing 3 sports of their choice (one from each season). The goals of the GPS Festival are to show girls that it is great to be a female athlete and that playing multiple sports is not only possible, but beneficial and FUN!!!
Thank you to the thirty-five ETHS female student athletes who took time from their schedule to pass on the love of their sport(s) to our 5th grade girls. Thank you to the PE teachers who were the chaperones for their 5th grade girls. And BIG THANKS to Freshii
who donated the delicious and healthy lunch to the 5th grade girls, the ETHS female student athletes and the PE teachers. They even gave all the girls a 20% discount
on Freshii purchases through November 30th when they wear their Girls Play Sports bracelet to their store in downtown Evanston.
